By my reckoning Gavin has had 9 separate operations and procedures in less than 6 months. There may have been more, I’ll have to check with Erica.
He has been nauseated for weeks at a time and as I write this he hasn’t had any food for 10 days – all his nutritional needs have been met through TPN. Oh, and he’s currently on oxygen 24×7.
And yet every morning the first thing he says is, “Dadda, wake up. Let’s play!”
This kid is unstoppable. Inspirational. He’s my hero.
