Home Sweet Home

YES! WE ARE HOME! We were greeted by lots of family and friends at the airport last Tuesday night. Gavin enjoyed all the clapping, shouting, balloons and the "welcome home" posters. My grandmother prepared a wonderful home cooked meal and had it waiting for us at home to eat! It was a wonderful day and I was so happy to get back to my own bed.



Thursday, Gavin had a follow up in OKC with the cardiologist. His chest x-ray and EKG looked great. His echo showed some gradient in one of the vessels in his heart, but they are not overly concerned about it and they will keep an eye on it. Gavin's INR levels were low again so they adjusted his medications and he will be re-checked at St. Francis this week. Then we head back to OKC in 3 weeks for a final post-op check up. Keep the prayers coming!



I want to thank each and every one of you that prayed for Gavin, sent us cards, emails, gifts, etc. Each of you know who you are and you are greatly appreciated!! I am writing thank you notes as fast as I can!!! Just know that your thought fullness means the world to us!



On to other news... I go in Tuesday to find out the gender of the baby. I am also do for a high risk screening and fetal echo very soon. So please pray that all goes well.

I will post pictures as soon as I get them downloaded to my computer... all the pics are on other cameras, I am a horrible picture taker!

Congrats on being home! Sounds like you had quite the fun homecoming :) It's so encouraging to hear how well he's doing post-surgery. Thanks for updating and good luck with the ultrasound and fetal echo. Prayers for a healthy baby!!!

Hi... I just stumbled on your blog. Wow... what a journey, and I'm so glad you all are home again. Be glad you missed the rain!
(I live west tulsa/sauplpa and thought I was going to have to build an ark.)
God bless you and I'll come back often, and Gavin is in my prayers.
