Day 22 – Sleep and Patience…

Hello To all,

That’s what the doctor ordered… sleep for Matthew and patience for us.  He said that it is critical that Matthew’s body have more time to sleep and in a few days they will attempt to re-awaken him again.  In visiting with Matthew today, his breathing seemed to be less labored.  His fever remains down and his vital signs are stable.  It is never easy to leave, but Matthew did seem to be more peaceful tonight.  So tonight I guess that we will close with no news being good news.  And today’s blessing is that Matthew’s lungs seem to be a little stronger and he seems to be more peaceful.  I know that it must absolutely seem hard to believe, but tonight there is nothing else that I have to say… I guess that we all need to follow the doctor’s advice and just be patient.  Well… it’s 12:35 am here, and for once I am going to bed before 2 am.  Hopefully in a couple of days I will have news that will bring so much joy to all, but for now we are just taking things one day at a time.

We love and miss all of you.  May God Bless you all always!  Please continue to keep Matthew in your prayers.

Forever Grateful,
