Day 13 – Matthew’s Health Continues to Worsen

Hello To All,

As of yesterday afternoon, Matthew started having violent hallucinations, that by last night they were so severe that his heart rate and blood pressure were out of control.  The doctors had to put him into a heavy sedation/coma in order to try to quiet his body down and try to ease him out of this again in a couple of days.  Last evening, the doctors had tried removing the respirator tube out of his throat (as it was a great source of agitation to him), but he was unable to breathe on his own, so they immediately re-intubated him.  Matthew’s fever continues to rise (all day it was almost 104 degrees).  The doctors are unclear as to the cause of the fever.

I humbly beg God and our Blessed Mother not to abandon their ever so faithful and trusting child, Matthew, during his darkest time.  Unfortunately there are so many unanswered questions that you have, as I have myself.  In the morning, I am going to try to meet with the head of this department and try to resolve many troubling, unanswered questions, as Matthew continues to head down a bad road.

With all of our hearts, we ask for you to come to Matthew’s aid again.  He truly, desperately needs the power of prayer tonight from each and every one of us because he is really struggling.  The RSD has done such a job on all of his insides, that his organs are not able to handle all that is happening.

God Bless You All Always! We miss you all so very much!

Forever Grateful,

    Praying, praying, praying!! Continue to hope and believe … petitioning our Father in the name of His Son, Jesus Christ ….. may He bring rest and comfort to Matthew and each of you this evening and may morning bring answers and healing …. you are … in … His Grip ….

  5. Our hearts and prayers are with you. May you and Daniel find strength in each other, as you go through this together. I pray Dr. Rohr and staff will be able to help Matthew through this most torturous time and set him on the path to eventual recovery. G-d bless you all through this. And to Russ who must be so upset not to be there with you . . . We wish you strength as well. May tomorrow’s light bring forth much better news.
