Sponge Bath

Sweet feet


I finally got to see Gavin and Faith was feeding him popsicle from a cup. He really enjoyed that! He wanted a green popsicle but they only had orange. The nurse decided to give him a sponge bath...every guy's dream! But when she started it he got upset and tried to get to Faith. He started shaking (Faith said he does that when he's in pain) and reaching for her. She was able to comfort him and the nurse gave him some pain medication. They have taken some of his tubes out and he seems to be doing really well. Really well for having open heart surgery yesterday. Adam just came to the waiting room and said that Faith is holding him now. A big aawwww erupted from the croud! Keep him in your prayers. Lots of hurdles to cross. More to come later Mitzi

Sweet pics! AWWWW....glad that you got to hold your sweet little man. I know that did some good for your heart!

I bet he enjoyed his popsicle. Stay away from the PURPLE Popsicle....remember Daric had Dr. KC a little worried with his purple lips until the nursed informed him that Daric had been eating purple popsicles!!! :)

Lots of Love,
