Gavin threw up a little bit this morning before breakfast. He threw up again this afternoon when we took him to the playroom. Gavin has not wanted much to eat today, so I am thinking it is the meds on a empty stomach that causes him to throw up. We are waiting to hear what the doctor thinks about it. He is less energetic today then he was yesterday... not wanting to get up and play or eat much. His potassium levels are going up so that is great news.
I will update again when I hear from the doctors this afternoon. Keep up the prayers, we are so ready to get discharged... even if it's only to the hotel. I hate hospitals!!!

So this is how we are doing breakfast and lunch. Dr. Peter was giving 16 hours from this afternoon to poop and get better (vomiting) or he was going to plan B. Gavin needs your prayers. Thank you for your encouragement. We will let you know how it plays out tomorrow! Mitzi

This was taken a few minutes ago
Gavin's room #318
We need prayers for poop!!! Adam said that they were going to catheter Gavin if he had not urinated by 3 am. Thank goodness he did pee pee before then. But...Gavin needs to have a bowel movement. He has been vomiting too. They did a chest xray this mornin and he has a little fluid in his left lung. Please pray hard today that Gavin will get over this little bump. Emotions are up and down. Thank you for your prayers!!! Mitzi

Just as I was getting ready to finish this blog Trenna came to the waiting room and told us to come look down the hall. Gavin WALKED to the end of the hallway to say hi!!! Can you believe that! Barely 24 hours after open heart surgery! We are praising God!! Thank you God!!! Mitzi
P.S. The nurses said that they have NEVER had a patient in PICU get up and walk while they were in there!!
Dr. Peter made his rounds this morning. Gavin is still doing well. He did throw up this morning, but they are not to concerned. They really want Gavin to rest and he seems to get more agitated when we are in the room with him, especially me. He wants to be held and he really wants his water!!! He is finally asleep now and we are in the waiting room. Gavin is on three medications now and IV fluids. His catheter, arterial line, & access line were removed when I got here this morning. THIS IS HUGE!!! One of his chest drainage tubes is still draining quite a bit, but Dr. Peter said they would just keep an eye on it and Dr. Peter has "definitely seen worse". We expect to be in ICU for the next few days. We really appreciate your prayers and ask that you keep them coming!
