Day 35 – Treatment Continues for Matthew

Hello to all,

Matthew’s four years of Spanish at North Providence High School came to his aid today in Germany when the dietitian taking orders for the next couple of days spoke only German and Spanish.  It was so nice to be able to communicate what foods Matthew likes to eat.

I am sure that everyone, as we, are very anxiously and prayerfully awaiting to know the results of how the treatment has affected Matthew’s RSD.  As of last Tuesday, August 12th, Dr. Rohr started Matthew on a ketamine infusion (as he was having RSD pain).  He will continue having the infusion for a few more days!  We will have to wait until the ketamine is completed to re-evaluate where, if any, the RSD pain is for Matthew… He has not been able to start physical therapy yet… Dr. Rohr told us that Matthew is one of the most complex RSD cases he has treated.  We still believe that a miracle awaits Matthew!

We love and miss you all.  God Bless you all for being so faithful and supportive of Matthew, and us, as his journey continues!

Forever Grateful,


Dan (Matt’s Brother)
