mixed emotions

Well they are finally talking discharge. Matthew has had a couple decent days; but yesterday was rough again. Today seemed better; but he is still vomiting and I feel like they keep throwing meds at him. I'm not sure how I feel about making my son into a chemistry experiment. He won't be fully recovered from the adenoid surgery for another week, and his stomach is still very delicate and gets very upset very easily. He is off oxygen and not needing deep suctioning anymore, so we are seeing some improvement. I don't feel like we've got everything figured out, but its not for lack of trying. Depending on tomorrow and what the doctors do, we coyld be going home as soon as Friday. I'm eeady to be home and be with my other kids, too. I just wish Matthew was a bit better. I'm still so glad we came. The doctors have really put their all into figuring this out. We've gotten excellent care here..I couldn't have asked for better; and we are thankful for that. Hopefully our next update will be from home.

Praying for Matthew - for healing and discharge. Barbara

Oh my dear friend, I feel I can hear the tiredness in your words. We continue to pray and seek God's heart and healing hand for Matthew. He has plans for that precious little boy. None of this catches God by surprise. And we're asking for peace and rest to be on you all.

Jill,

Tons of prayers from here in Lincoln...that things will calm by Friday, the "experiment" of meds will be completed, Matthew to rest and heal, and for you, and all that you need.

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

Tons of Hugs & Prayers!

I'm so sorry there wasn't a fix for this. I'm frustrated, so I can't imagine how you feel about it. Hoping to see you soon.
