Batman has left the building...

"Da-nah-da-nah Batman!! Aunt Patti do that", Gavin's exact words after putting on his Batman costume that Aunt P, Grandma E and Aunt B purchased for him before we left. Apparently Aunt Patti taught him all about Batman. He was so excited to wear his costume and get out of the HOSPITAL!!! You heard me right, Gavin was discharged at 1:00pm (PST) today. He had his sedated echo this morning and everything looked great. As we were loading up the van, one of the doctors came running out... I was thinking step on the gas and let's get out of here before they try to stop us. However, Dr. S was just giving us the echo result papers and DVD to take to OKC when we get home. We are now at the hotel where Gavin is sleeping peacefully, still a little loopy from his sedation today. Gavin has his follow-up on Monday, full of labs, chest x-ray and EKG. If all looks good we will be out of here by Tuesday!!! I heard we missed A LOT of rain while we were gone... not jealous about that, the only thing we have enjoyed here is the weather! We ask for prayers that Gavin will stay healthy and that we will be able to head home on Tuesday! We will keep you posted...


Gavin is "drugged" up in these pictures from his sedation...

This is the view I am getting while I type, so good to be "home"....

Yay! Yay! Yay!

So happy to hear things are going good with him.

You'll be in our prayers still.

He is quite the little hero too and quite the fighter!

Awesome News. Praise God! Hopefully, Gavin's costume, which is too cute, will give him super healing. Happy Mother's Day (early) to one of the strongest mommy's I know.

Hallelujah! That's probably the best Mother's Day present you could get.
So glad for all of you.

I am SOOOOO happy for you guys. I can't even tell you. Truly tearing up. Because it's so hard to see your little boy be so unhappy and so unlike himself then to have him sleeping in his own blankets without tubes. Wonderufl. Good job you guys... I'll stay posted. We go home tomorrow (again...) to see if we FINALLY conquered the pleural effusion!

Lisa Marie Trent said...

Wait a minute! Was he EVER on O2 while he was there? It's not on him in any pictures? What are his sat's at? I'm so jealous. Jack is between 80-85 most of the time on
.25 litres. I hope we get off it soon!
