We Are Coming Home!

We just received news that Gavin's EEG was normal and we are coming home today!!! Sorry we don't have a cute picture like we did the first time we came home from the hospital. The laptop wont let us download pictures. We will post more when we come home! Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom to the top of our hearts for all of your love, support and prayers!! We wouldn't have made it through with out all of the support we have received. I want to take the time to thank Scott and Laura W. and their church family for giving us such great support, thank you for all the families (especially some of the couples from our young married class (: ) from BA Church of Christ for their support too. Thank you to our FAMILY and FRIENDS who put up with our "irritability" and listened to us when we were sad. Thank you to our parents and grandparents for giving us a break and for runnig errands for us and getting us food! Thank you to all of the people who were here with us on the day of Gavin's surgery- the OU Medical staff is AMAZED by all of the friends and family we had here both times! Thank you to Mitzi for coming and staying to give us a break from this hospital!! Thank you for all the food too!!! Thank you to Aunt Tara for updating the blog and for being a shoulder to lean on! Thank you to those who got our mail and checked on our house. Thank you to all who visited us! Thank you to Larry and Suzanne for opening their home AGAIN for us to stay, shower and eat. Your generosity amazes us! Thank you to Jimmy and Emily L. for flying Aunt Erin here to be with her nephew! Thank you to ALL of the heart families (some who we have NEVER met) who reached out to us during this time and became some of our greatest support! Thank you to the nurses, doctors and staff for taking such GREAT care of our precious son! Once again, there are so many individuals to thank, soooo thank you to ALL who have been there for us along the way. Our journey with Gavin's heart condition is far from over but we will forever appreciate what has been given to us. Stay tuned to the blog for all the milestones in Gavin's life and for his 3rd open heart surgery (hopefully not until age 2!) Thanks again and our prayer is that those who have prayed for us will be richly blessed! Hugs and Kisses to everyone!
