12/8


I took this picture this morning shortly after Matthew woke up.  He was definitely in a good mood until the nurses came in and informed him it was time to change his lines. 

I had called down to order him some food and the food service folks told me that cottage cheese was not available on his special diet.  after informing the doctor of this, there is now an official doctor's order stating that 'the patient can eat as much cottage cheese as he wants.'

The ironic thing is that I have the same doctor's order, but it says I can eat as much bacon as I want. Good to see that Matthew is still smiling through the ordeal. Keep fighting.

Seeing Matthew smile really makes my day! What a love - give him a kiss for me and his cousin Michael.

What a beautiful smile Matthew has-he's a real trooper. The ten day count-down is almost over before you can get a little R&R at home. Hang in there - we think and pray for you guys all the time. love ya, uncle wayne and aunt anne
