1/12/11

I just haven't been in the mood to update the blog. Sorry. It get frustrating and annoying to update "Matthew's still sick" or "Matthews in the hospital". I thought about not even putting anything here; but I've had numerous people who aren't on facebook wonder how we are doing.

Well, Matthew is in the hospital. He's had pneumonia since 12/29. Despite 3 different oral antibiotics at home, he could not kick it. While we doing fine at home, we need to get him well enough so that the doctors can perform a surgery to hopefully stop the vomiting. So our pulmonologist figured it would be best to admit for "a course of IV antibiotics." He said this could be up to 2 weeks. We are then hoping to encourage the surgeon then that this is "as well as he's going to get" and to do the surgery. Without the surgery, he continues to throw up, and aspirate and get pneumonia. This will be a delicate balance in timing.

There will not be dramatic changes here from day to day. We are basically here; watching and waiting. So probably nothing really earth shattering to even blog about. I'm sure I will update when the surgery day is set.
