Saturday Update

We finally were able to hold Gavin for the first time around 11 today. He is able to eat 1 ounce every 3 hours, poor guy he is so hungry! The surgeon removed his arterial line and pacemaker wires this morning! Yay! We had a little scare this afternoon, while Gavin was sleeping his heart rate dropped to the 50s, which is sometimes typical for these heart babies, but Gavin has always had a good heart rate. The nurse had the cardiologist come in and he said he was fine. They had given him some morphine this morning and they thought it was because he was sleeping so hard. Thanks again for all of your prayers! Please continue to pray for the other children in the PICU, there was a baby last night that has the same condition as Gavin who started to go into cardiac arrest. We didn't get much sleep last night because of all of the motion. The baby seems to be OK this morning, they have him on the ECMO machine. Pray that his parents have peace and comfort through this time.

We will continue to bring him up in prayer and let others in our Bible class know the needs for prayer. We love you all! Your strength, care and concern for others is showing such love!
