A picture is worth a 1,000 words...

This picture pretty much sums up how Gavin feels this morning. Still no bowel movement. Last night Dr. Peter came back up to the hospital (he was not on call) and spent some time with Faith and Adam. He explained to them that he still feels that Gavin is doing well. The intestinal issues are not uncommon. Dr. Peter and his wife have given Faith their cell phone numbers and have told her to call them at any time. I feel sure that Dr. Peter will be back up here before the day is over. Gavin still has fluid draining and had dry heaves last night. They have given him something for nausea so we are hoping that will pass soon. Gavin is asking for milk, water or juice. He can't have anything to drink right now. Continue to pray for the obvious and also for family members here with Faith and Adam. Thank you for your support of this precious little guy! Mitzi

Oh, sweet boy! I feel so awful for him! We're still praying for his comfort and healing and the family's strength and stamina! I can't imagine how exhausted everyone must feel!

And I must say, I am most impressed that his hair is still amazingly cute even in the hospital:) Such a cutie!!

Oh I know that look & it breaks my heart. After Joshua's Glenn he had the same issues with pooping & when it finally happened he felt a lot better. They finally gave him a suppository and also prune juice thru the NG tube & it happened. Oh, how I hope Gavin poops today!
We are thinking of you & hope things go well.
He looks as sweet as can be!

We also used Prune juice for Grace, (she was having issues with poop after her Fontan) and it worked wonders. I hate so much I didn't think of mentioning it sooner, though you may have already tried it. Still praying and lifting you guys up. Sounds like you guys have one amazing surgeon :)

Faith, I've been meaning to say "way to rock the OSU apparel" while you're in California. I think I've seen 2 OSU shirts on you so far. Woohoo! :)
