WE HAVE A SURGERY DATE!!!!

Gavin will have his third open heart surgery on Wednesday, April 22nd. Gavin will have pre-op the day before. This morning has been an emotional roller coaster... we were told at 8:45 this morning that the insurance would not approve for us to go to San Diego. By 10, they had changed their mind, I just love insurance companies (NOT). Our wonderful pediatrician and his nurse put up a fight. Since the day we found out about Gavin's condition, we said we would do whatever it takes to get the best care for our son. Even if that means selling our house, going in debt, and flying across the country to get the job done. Needless to say, I have shed some stressful tears this morning. We really need your prayers... this is bittersweet and we have wished for this day to be here since Gavin was born, it's the end of one chapter and the beginning of another. We are so ready for this surgery to be over and for Gavin to have no complications. Thank you all again for the prayers, well wishes, love and support!

Oh my goodness. This news literally took my breath away! I can't believe Gavin's 3rd and final surgery will be in less than 2 weeks. I have put it on our calendar, and we will be praying fervently between now and then (and afterwards, too, of course). I will also make sure our church bulletin gets updated with this latest news. Wow, I have tears in my eyes right now. Love you all!!
