You mean he is gonna look like daddy?

So we have begun talking with Claire about Matthew and explaining his sickness and what she can expect.  Needless to say, she has countless questions and misses her brother terribly.  Today she is going to be tested to determine if she will be a bone marrow match for Matthew when it comes time for a bone marrow transplant.  The results of that test generally takes 4 or 5 business days.  In a discussion last night, Nicole told Claire about Matthew's PIC line and how he was going to lose all of his hair.  To which Claire responded, "You mean he is gonna look like daddy?"

Dear Gene and Nicole, I just got caught up with the last two days of posting. Little Matthew is so precious; so much joy! What a trooper!

We are thinking of you all and praying for Matthew daily. I speak to my sister every day on Skype; she asked me to let you know that the Sisters of Providence, both in Indiana and Taiwan are praying for your family.

Take care, dear ones. Our love and regards to all.

Sincerely, Peg and Michael
