Gavin met with his cardiologist for his surgical follow up and it couldn't have gone better. He has bounced right back from his surgery and it is such a relief that we don't look at him with the haunting thought, "Is his conduit failing right now?" His heart is repaired and we can rest for a few years now. While anything can happen and Gavin is the example of that, the direct danger is gone now and we can now focus on him and how he is developing into this amazing, loving child. He was such a big great big brother today, showing Owen how all the tests are done. He loved that Dumbo was playing while Owen had his echo today.
Gavin returns for an echo in six months, a big change from what we are used to. Dr. Tim asked if I was going to be alright not seeing them every few weeks or 3 months. We will be alright, although they are all awesome up there, our family would like to plan fun outings rather than our afternoons around echos. While this seems like a lot to go through, I am always reminded that we have it extremely easy compared to what other families and little children are going through.
Gavin has healed really well from his surgery and we are all looking forward to a few months off from the doctors office. Thank you all so much for your continued prayers and support with Gavin and his journey.
