Hello to all,
Dan and I can’t believe that for all of the days and incredible things that have gone on… that we never missed writing to you… and yesterday was one of the most hectic days. With short notice of needing to bring Matthew home, needing to make arrangements, and having to pack, we went to bed at 3 am and realized that we forgot to do the blog. But at that point everything was already packed up. The trip home took quite a toll on Matthew, but thank God that we all made it home to America safe and sound (there is no place like home). But unfortunately, it’s not for long. In speaking with Dr. Schwartzman’s office yesterday and updating them with where Matthew is at with his RSD, Dr. Schwartzman felt strongly that Matthew needed to be admitted to the hospital in Philadelphia directly from Germany. However, after countless attempts to re-book a direct flight from Germany to Philadelphia, there was no way to arrange this with just hours of notice. Matthew is having severe pain and throbbing in his right ankle and right lower leg, which are new. He remains with RSD pain in both of his feet, as before. So Matthew will get a one day reprieve before flying to the hospital in Philadelphia. So Matthew and I are scheduled to fly out first thing Monday morning for admission to the hospital in Philadelphia. The last thing that Matthew wants to do is to endure more CVP lines, epidurals, ect. But Dr. Schwartzman felt strongly that it is critical to be aggressive with this new RSD pain. We have always felt very blessed, from day one of meeting Dr. Schwartzman, that Matthew was in the best hands that anyone could hope for. We will update you more tomorrow, as it would have been 3am in Germany at this time, and between only getting a couple of hours of sleep last night and the jet-lag, we are all exhausted.
We love and miss you all! May God Bless you all always!
