Quick Update

It's Kristen, bringing you...

Words from Jill:

Sorry for the quick update, but my kids are going to be here in 1/2 hour, and I'm gonna spend time with them when they get here.

Matthew had a great night, other than the fact he didn't sleep till 2 am. We slept in today and Dr. F okayed to start the ketogenic diet. At noon today it started. We have not seen any changes; but don't expect to.

A lot of the nurses and respiratory therapists that haven't seen him in awhile can't believe the changes in Matthew. I don't always notice changes since I'm here everyday.

I think, he may be seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. We keep hearing rumblings of "discharge planning". I won't get excited until we get outside the doors!!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!! We will be spending it together as a family! I may not update tomorrow, but not to worry, I'll be back soon!

This update has a lot of reasons to make one smile...

a good night for Matthew...

starting the diet...

feeling the warmth of the light at the end of the tunnel (we pray Matthew keeps getting closer to it, with no set backs)...

And seeing your family!

I can only imagine the excited hugs and kisses that must have taken place when you were all finally together.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!

Lots of love and prayers to you all!

Happy Thanksgiving (a day late). So VERY glad you all got to spend it together as a family. Praying that the new diet starts working soon. And praying that discharge really is close on the horizon.
