After almost 2 weeks of being at the hospital, Gavin was finally discharged last week Wednesday, Nov. 24, 2010 just in time for thanksgiving. Being at the hospital for that long was no fun, but with all the wonderful nurses (especially Beth and Susan) and all the amazing people who came to visit us at the hospital, it made the experience so positive for Gavin. Shortly after being discharged, we drove to Las Vegas to my parents’ place the next day to pick up our daughter Audrey Bella and to spend thanksgiving with the rest of the family. Currently, Gavin is doing fine and is fully recovered. We are now consistently feeding him through a continuous feeding pump with an IV pole so that his feeding is done through an hour duration. He is still agitated at times which could be from post-surgery pain, but is relieved through pain meds. I am such a minimalist when it comes to medication, but this time, I need to give in as I hate to see Gavin in pain. Still I cannot thank everyone enough who has been so supportive while we were at the hospital. The lists goes on and on…. It has been a long and exhausting journey for all of us, but we hope to get some r & r by mid December as we head to Orlando, Florida for Gavin’s dream vacation to Disney World courtesy of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Stay tuned!
