Frogs jumping in the water

I just got back to the waiting room after being in Gavin's room for a while. The cardiologist on call for the weekend came in and seemed extremely nice and assured Faith that everything seemed "normal" for someone having MAJOR surgery 2 days ago. He still has not had a bowel movement. Since they have put the cath in he has had a lot of urine. His eyes were swollen earlier today and they already have gone down some. His fever is a little lower. They keep telling us that after he poops he will be a new guy. Kristen and Kate came in while I was in Gavin's room and asked him what he had been dreaming about. Gavin said "frogs jumping in water". He seems to dream about frogs a lot! Pray that he will get a good nights rest and that he will poop. I hope this is the last time that I have to blog about it. Thank you for your prayers and kind words. Faith and Adam feel extremely blessed and send their love to all of you! Mitzi

Gavin's room #318

Last night a volunteer who plays the harp for patients. He was actually very good!

Yesterday in the waiting room

Yesterday when Gavin went on his 2nd walk. If you look closely you might be able to make him out at the end of the hall

I am thinking about you guys all the time and I am praying that Gavin will poop soon and feel better!!! And that you all will be able to rest better!

"Frogs jumping in the water..."....I love how innocent little one's dreams are :0)

"frogs jumping in water "
When Hunter was born he seemed to get a lot of frog for gifts ( he still loves them )... Did you know they are the only animal that is born with a 3 chamber heart !! and can live without help.. ( 3 chambers... like our boyz...)

thinking of you, take care..

GOOD JOB GAVIN! I can't even believe it. Jack didn't walk till the day we discharged !(for the first time..)

An he didn't poop till the third or fourth day. It does bum me out to think of little backed up babies.

I'm so impressed with Gavin though, he is workin hard to get out of there. Good luck!!
