An update on his condition last night revealed that he is now taking up to fifty steps but is still quite sore. Thankfully, he has a great team around him to encourage him on the road to recovery.
 
An update last night wrote: “Look who's up walking….Over the last few days Gavin has increased from 20 steps to 50 steps and then today walked all the way to the playroom and also most made it back again. He is still very sore but we need to push him a bit now to get up and moving. We knew he could do it, and he sure did. They have started Gavin on IV Food now too which is getting pumped directly into his tummy and he is taking it very well so tomorrow we will try introduce some solid food in small pieces and see how that goes. The medical team are very happy with his progress and recovery so far which is great news. They took off his dressings yesterday so we have seen the stitches down his chest. It is big but very clean and Gavin doesn't mind it. Every day he is getting stronger and stronger and by next week he will be running down this corridor.  The last picture shows a bell in the Children's Cancer Ward, its just brilliant and cannot wait for Gavin to ring it.”
 
Well done, Gavin, we wish you all the best on your road to recovery and keep up the great work you little superhero.
