Update on Gavin

7 Jun

Hey everyone, since I’ve gotten so many questions about how Gavin’s doing, I figured I’d better post an update.
He’s doing MUCH better. He didn’t have that colon disease that they were so worried about. They think he probably just had some sort of infection that enlarged his colon. The tests did show that he has something called Barrett’s esophagus: bleeding ulcers in your esophagus. It’s easily treated with medication, but it’s a good thing they caught it because untreated it can be really malignant.
Anyway, they are treating him with a bunch of medications to try to calm down his irritated colon and to treat the Barrett’s. In the meantime, he’s feeling about a zillion times better. When I heard him cheering at the Wii I knew he was getting back to his old self.
Thanks for all your thoughts. I’ll keep you posted if anything changes.
