Infusion Day

Well, it is now 2:50pm and we have been in the infusion room since 8am. Gavin has been such a good boy...mainly because he has slept most of the time. He was up very late last night.

Todays infusion is Remicade, IVIG & Solumedrol. His Dr came in and examined him and is happy with his joints (no flares...YAY). So, she lowered his oral steroids again (another YAY). She is going to mail all of his medical papers from his eye Dr in Miami to the new one here so she can "study" Gavin's history.

Gavin had to get stuck twice today for his IV :( The problem with him is that when they put it in the bend of his elbow the machine goes off every 10 minuites because he won't keep him arm straight. Today they did it in he wrist and it blew :( so they had to do the underneath of his forearm....it looks so painful but he didn't cry once :)

He was so happy to see that Jake and Hannah were here getting their infusions when he woke up. Hannah let Gavin play with her iPod Touch and now he is addicted...lol...he loved it.

Anyways, it has been a great visit at the Dr's today. Now we are going to try and get this splinter out of his finger.

Thanks for the prayers and love! It's working :)
