Sorry for not updating everyone, we wanted to wait until we were back home and settled.
We arrived back home 2 weeks ago today. Once Gavin was comfortable after his operation in Arnold Palmer hospital, the staff and Make a Wish arranged an air ambulance to take us back home. Gavin was very happy to travel in a plane in his bed and was very comfortable all the way home thanks to JET ICU for the great trip. We were so well looked after by all the doctors, nurses and play specialist staff in Arnold Palmer and have made many friends so we thank you all for your help during our stay.
We were then picked up in Dublin airport by BUMBLEance and brought to Crumlin hospital with Gavin’s Gardai friends in front as they wanted to welcome him home. We have spent the last 2 weeks in the ICU Ward as Gavin had another operation last Monday. The surgical team and all the nurses have been amazing and really looking after Gavin very well.
We are now out of ICU and in another ward. Gavin is in great form as always and doing well. He is sitting up watching lots of DVD’s and keeping all the nurses entertained and me and Jayne…bossing us around which is great to see.
The plan now is for the surgical team to monitor Gavin over the next 10 days and see how everything is going and then hopefully we will be able to go home.
“We would ask that any online or press media to be mindful of what quotations you print please as we need to be careful of Gavin’s brother and sister and what they can read”.
