Docs still don’t know

Gavin’s condition hasn’t improved and the doctors don’t know what’s wrong.

He has high blood pressure, high heart rate, high respitory rate, and low oxygen saturation. The BP is still their biggest concern and the drugs have been relatively ineffective in treating it.

So, they continue to monitor and test.

His heart test results came back normal thankfully. There was a small amount of fluid around his heart and in his lungs but not enough to warrant surgery.

Erica was at the hospital all night again and didn’t get much sleep. I relieved her this morning and sent her back to Lauren’s condo for some much-needed rest.

Today they’re planning to do an ECG to check his heart again, and also to have neurosurgery come and examine him. There is a possibility that his shunt is blocked or infected (let’s hope not).

Please keep us in your thoughts. Gavinator needs all the energy you can give.

    I’m sending out long distance care – with the picture of Gavin in my mind the one I took in Florida; I concentrated and sent it out today – I will do so again tonight. Love you guys!! xx
