Hello To All,
While visiting Matthew at the hospital today, the minutes seemed precious and few. There was very little change in his condition from yesterday, although there were a couple of times that we thought he was able to recognize our voices. In talking with the doctor today, one of the things that he mentioned was that Matthew needs a few more days of being sedated to help him. His body and mind have been through a great ordeal, so, as the doctor told me, we just have to be patient for a few more days (we absolutely agree with whatever is best for Matthew, but being patient is always a challenge in itself at a time like this). Matthew’s cycle of the high fevers seems to have been broken and all day his fever was almost normal. That in itself is a big blessing, where Matthew’s body was enduring these high fevers for so long. Today, I told Matthew that you all send your love and prayers.
On a different note, Melissa was discharged from the hospital today and she is pain free!!!! We are over-joyed for her that she is now able to begin a new life! She is an incredible person!
So that’s about all of the news here from Germany. We love and miss you all! May God bless you all always! With all of my heart I thank you for taking the time to send Dan and I emails and/or posts on the blog, as we start our day by reading emails/posts and they give us more strength than you can imagine. God bless you all for reaching out to us in the way you have.
