We had a pretty rough weekend, so we're glad for a new week. For some reason, Matthew's NG tube kept getting plugged, no matter what we did. We went through 6 tubes in 6 days. They are meant to last 30 days. We were at the end of our rope! I finally figured out that if we let his meds soak in water for at least 2 hours, they would go down the tube better. As a consequence to all the tubes-this weekend especially- his throat is really irritated and he is coughing a lot. Coughing makes him gag, so it's not fun times for him. We're hoping this tube stays down a lot longer!
This week will be a busy one for us. We have 8--yes 8---appointments. Matthew sure is a well traveled little man.
The kids are getting excited for Valentines day. Megan decorated her valentines box today and we're getting ready to create our cards tomorrow and Wednesday. Fun times; makes me remember all the fun I had with valentines as a kid.
Steve's keeping busy with his new shop. And he's happy, too, which is a big bonus for me!
Matthew is smiling more to faces; especially if we're close. If I get close to his face; he recognizes me and gives a huge grin. It's so sweet! Melts my heart!
I think his seizures seem to be getting better, too. At least today it seems so. Cross your fingers!
Matthew will be dedicated at our church Saturday. We're looking forward to a nice quiet weekend.
