The ventilator is out!!!!

Align CenterThe ventilator is out!!!! This is great! He asked for his mommy right away. He is asking for Faith to "hold me" and for his "bite you" (pacifier). He is still at the top of his class. It is unusual for patients to get the vent out this early. We are so excited!!! His pacemaker has been taken off and his heart rhythm is better. Adam just came in the waiting room to tell us that Dr. Peter came in the room and Adam said to Gavin "Dr. Peter is here". Gavin opened his eyes and said "hey". Dr. Peter was rubbing Gavin's head and Gavin opened his eyes again and said "Charlie bit me"!!! For those of you who know the story this is great! Dr. Peter asked Adam what he said and Adam had to fill him in. I will update new information as I receive it. I will also put more pictures up from the last 2 days. Please forgive the jumbled order. This blog thing is new to me. Love to all of you! Mitzi

What a little soldier!! That is amazing that his vent is out that early! He truly IS at the top of the class. The second surgery makes them so much pinker and such a noticeable difference right away! I am so happy for you guys! Go Gavin and Praise God!!
