Hello to all!
Today during our visit, Matthew was awake for almost all of it, but looked worn out. The doctor said that today they started him on another medication for a while to help Matthew with his hallucinations. However, progress was made today in spite of Matthew trying to adjust to the new medication. Dan and I brought Matthew some ice cream, which is his absolute favorite. He did a very good job and although he ate slowly, he polished it off. He also did well taking in fluids while we were there, which is a big improvement since yesterday. The nurse was surprised because she said that he hadn’t wanted to take anything from them today. Matthew, in spells, certainly tried speaking to us. He obviously had a lot on his mind and he was determined to continue talking until we could get what he was trying to say. When we tried to explain to him why he was having a hard time getting his thoughts out and across to us, and that he needed to rest, that he was safe, and that he was so strong and doing great… he didn’t want to hear it. He was adamant to make us understand what he wanted to say. I guess we need to remember what the doctor told us a few days ago, that we need to have patience and give Matthew time to rest. We are keeping it short tonight. Not much else is new with Matthew at the moment. We will take a day of progress and no new problems any day!
The weather here today started out with rain, then the sun was out beautiful for a couple of hours, then a violent thunder storm, then sun, and now it has been raining for hours.
We are so very grateful for the daily blessings that God is bestowing upon Matthew and the continuous devotion from all of you to Matthew, Dan and I!
We love and miss you all! May God Bless you all always!
