Slowly but surely

Matthew is getting slowly better. We are seeing more smiles and less gagging. It's been easy to neglect the blog especially trying to get back in the swing of things and with Christmas quickly approaching. But, I've also neglected the blog because some days are just too painful to relive by blogging about it. It's been a hard tear-filled recovery . Matthew is starting to sleep more at night, and we are not needing a nurse to come as often. Having a couple nights rest over the weekend when a nurse came into the home was a god-send though. Our day nurse, Jane, has also come in a lot, and even came at 3am one morning so I could sleep.

I have some fun Christmas stuff to post, too. I have been enjoying doing some decorating in our new home.

Oh, and for our local peeps: We recenty found our that our family was nominated and was chosen as a Magic moments winner. We will be on TV tomorrow on Channel 8! I believe different parts of our story will air at 5pm 6pm and 10pm. We're oh so excited!! If they post our story on a online video; I certainly will link it for everyone.

So happy Matthew is getting better. Our prayers continue for that to continue.
