Thurs - Day 6 Post Op - Progress!!

Heather and I traded off last night so she can have some time with the other kids and I can eat more cafeteria food. :) The kids were very excited to see their mom for more than a couple of hours and I can't really blame them. Unfortunately for me, we were like ships passing in the night. Our neighbor stayed with the kids after I got them into bed until Heather got home and Grandma Conway, who had been visiting Heather, stayed with Gavin until I got here. No mommy time for me. :(

The biggest news of the day is that Gavin's blood pressure came down quite a bit last night! The new oral medication they started Tues seems to be doing the trick. The different meds work to reduce blood pressure in different ways and it looks like they have found the one that works on Gavin the right way. So they have been gradually reducing one of his IV meds for blood pressure (apparently it wasn't doing much at all) and this morning it has been turned off! One down and one to go.

Just another reason to be a smiley bundle of cuteness.

Interesting tidbit - Gavin does not particularly care for blood pressure cuffs.
