This is the best way I can describe about how I feel today


Matthew has had an amazing day! He is on his full feedings, he is off his IV pain medication, and off of 1 antibiotic. The other antibiotic he can go home on, since there is an oral version of it. He is not on oxygen, and the pain medications we can give in his g-button seem to be helping him; except for when he coughs; then he is uncomfortable. Matthew is not doing any retching or vomiting. He is happy as a clam (except when he coughs).

I have a completely new little boy!

This is some of the best news I've heard from you in awhile and I am ecstatic for you AND Matthew. I'm glad the surgery was a success and you guys get to go home soon.

Steve and Jill: An answer to much pray! Thank you, Lord! I'm thinking you are going home on Wednesday. I'm thinking you are in Omaha....am I right? I will call Dad and Mom. Love you so much. Take care of yourselves! Aunt Delores

YEAH! God is amazing! (not that He isn't all of the time...it is just fun when I get to see miracles!) Does this mean that Matthew might "hang" with me on Thursday? Hugs!
