Just a quick update for everyone. Matthew is, well, Matthew. He got a cold 2 1/2 weeks ago; which we managed at home for about a week before he developed pneumonia. He got a trip to the local ER, and ambulance ride to the Children's hospital. The ambulance ride turned out to be a little traumatic for all parties involved when he decided to stop breathing in the ambulance shortly after we pulled out of the hospital. The episode was short lived; but the ambulance driver drove ALOT faster after that. I think Matthew didn't think we were going fast enough :)
He only spent 24 hours in the hospital (thanks to some really great IV antibiotics), and was dismissed to recover at home, since we have oxygen, and IV supplies at home. He was on oxygen about a total of 10 days; and is almost fully recovered now.
We have gotten approved by the state for more nursing hours; and I am now able to sleep ALL night 5 nights a week. TRUE BLISS. I am now a spoiled girl. I LOVE it. Matthew's night nurse is fantastic and takes great care of him. We are getting "day" care 2 times a week too with the same nurse we've had for over a year; so we are truly enjoying the wonderful team we have.
The other kids are counting the days till summer break (3 weeks) and I am looking forward to it too!
In 5 days I will have a teenager. Oh MY. I am not ready for that.
Hopefully the next post will contain pictures of my growing chubby boy and his adorable siblings. Happy May day!
