isolation

Matthew is still in isolation but seems to be doing a little better than he was at this time yesterday.  Isolation is where you are in your own room (good) but you are confined there and can't leave (not so good).  As soon as the doctors get the results of a few tests indicating he does not have anything dangerously contageous, he will be moved out to a regular room.  He had a fever up until last night and was fever free for all of yesterday and so far this evening which is a good sign.  He is on a steady cocktail of several different antibiotics which are designed to combat pretty much anything that is causing him this discomfort.  He wasn't eating anything really up until this morning when he was able to muscle his way through a few donut holes and then it was encouraging this evening when he at his mac n cheese by sticking his foot in the bowl and then eating the noodles off of his foot.  Difficult to say how long stay will be but getting through this recovery period should be the last hurdle.

"Mac and Cheese a la foot" is very good! It's great to hear Matthew's getting a little appetite back!

We miss and love you,

Peg and Michael
