Recovery Update

Gavin is still sedated and the doctor and nurses plan on keeping him sedated through the night and will try to start weaning him off the ventilator and medicine tomorrow. The nurses are still trying to stabilize his blood pressure, as it has peaked several times today. Gavin is also running a low grade fever that the nurses are trying to control. In addition to these issues, Gavin's right lung collapsed during the surgery. A chest x-ray was done this morning and still showed the lung as collapsed. The nurses are giving him breathing treatments, as well as other respiratory therapy and another chest x-ray will be taken tomorrow morning. According to Faith, the doctor wasn't overly concerned about the collapsed lung and was confident that respiratory therapy would correct it. That's the update for now - will post again as soon as I get another update. Keep praying! - Aunt Tara
