In the OR

Gavin is in the OR having his biopsy done. We hope and pray that he has the strength to get through this. Trying to focus my energy towards him and also hoping the anesthesia team and surgeons feel this energy too.

The surgery should be over within a couple of hours, and Gavin will be returned to the ICU.

This morning he looked peaceful and calm, our guardian angel Ann made sure that he had a good night. Our eternal gratitude to you Ann and all the other nurses who have made a difference for Gavin.

    Our household is a multifaith home.  Both O’neil & I have complex practices of faith.  Within our practice is an appreciation for the Catholic culture of praying with the Saints, having both been Baptized into Catholicism.  
    You mentioned that you were praying with St Jude so I thought I might offer you, & those praying for Gavin, the following list. I usually research each Saint, their history etc to see if I feel a connection, but, like many in your community of prayers, I’ve been calling on the broadest community of prayers I can. The one thing missing is Saints for the parents of sick children(please post if you know Saints for this). Please be assured we are praying for you Erica & Craig, and all those who are there with you in the darkest moments.
