What a great day, since leaving the hospital life has been full of good surprises. Gavin is eating like a champ, polishing off one—get this—and a half jars of chicken and rice (his new favorite) for dinner, so I took a picture of him so you can see his delight. The nurse called his little fat creases- bracelets…we need more bracelets or maybe we should call his little rolls his bling, because they are worth their weight in gold…so its wonderful!
The kids are both settled back at home and are so much more relaxed—it’s wonderful. I officially left today for two hours and Gav was excited to see the return of the juice sippy cup. Jay said that he picked it up with both his hands and stuck it in his mouth.
After rereading the hospital journals, I realized that I said that the doctor can’t help. I just want to clarify that his doctors have been wonderful, and I know if they could, they would fix him…sometimes I say things in frustration, but I just wanted to make sure I clarified, that although they can’t fix his problem, they are the only reason that he is alive, so I appreciate all they do!
Well, we are all still in our turkey coma, but hopefully tomorrow we will get out more and enjoy this beautiful weather! Lauren decorated the back window with some window paint to start getting the kids into the holiday spirit and we put up little trees in both their rooms. Gav is into the lights and Lauren needs hers on now to fall asleep.
I added a video of Gavin and his cousin, Annalyse, when she came to see her cousin in the hospital. Gav loves her (and baby dolls). I think that he is somewhat pleased he is no longer the low man on the totem pole, but as you can see, he is all about getting her hair, and hands on this video (and in this one he doesn’t take her nuk, but loves grabbing her nuk away). Hope all is well and you can all enjoy your good weekend! We can smile and relax—- all is calm!
