Wednesday Update II

Gavin continues to be stable but he has had a few set backs. The doctors are trying to stablilize his blood pressure (still too high) and his carbon dioxide level is too high. Chest x-rays have been taken but carbon dioxide level is still puzzling the doctors and nurses. Changing out Gavin's breathing tube is an option but they don't feel that he is stable enough to do that yet. The doctors maintain that these set backs are somewhat typical with this invasive surgery - they just wish that Gavin was doing as well as he was this morning. Grandparents will be staying with Gavin during the night so Adam and Faith can try to get some rest. The family has asked to please remember Adam & Faith - they are trying to be so strong but are really having to deal with so many emotions right now. And continue to pray for Gavin - that he will be a fighter and pull through these set backs. And pray for the doctors and nurses involved - that they are doing their best for Gavin.
