We heart Neutrophils

Matthew is home again after an 8 day holiday filled stay at Children's Memorial Hospital.  His Neutrophil count was nearly 300 which is not as high as the 500 they would like to see but is higher than the 60-90 he has been measuring for the past few days.  The upward trend was encouraging so we were given the release and it is great to have everyone at home.  Claire summed it up best when she saw her 'little brudder', hugged him (not too tightly), and whispered to herself "this is the greatest present ever".

We are so happy to hear that Matthew is home again! We continue to keep him (and the whole family) in our thoughts and prayers. We wish that we were closer so that we could help out in some way, but it sounds like you have some pretty amazing friends and family out there! Claire's comments pretty much sum up the way everyone must be feeling right now. Thanks for the updates and the pictures, they are too cute!
