We received some very good news late last week regarding Matthew's bone marrow transplant. The latest tests have revealed that 99% of the Matthew's cells are his new cells (mine). We sort of already had a feeling this was the case as women (and even some dudes) have been increasingly unable to resist Matthew's attractiveness. This is a curse I have long had to live with and something I unfortunately passed along to the little guy. Below is a pic in the hospital bathtub during one of our last nights there.
Wanted to send along a special thanks to Traci Puk and Ellen Keeler for coordinating the pumpkin patch fundraiser for CMH. "Awesome" does not even begin to describe the effect the toys resulting from their efforts will have on sick children like Matthew. Here is a picture of Claire scarfing down a donut (or 3).
