December 3rd marked 1 year since we learned of Matthew's diagnosis. He is doing well and is emerging into an almost normal little 2 year old. Looking back on the past year makes me appreciate even more the doctors and nurses who cared for Matthew. I am continuously amazed by this group of people.
The Wednesday before Thanksgiving, we learned that the Make-A-Wish foundation was going to grant Matthew his wish. This is awesome news and if you are looking for an end of the tax deduction, pull the trigger on this great organization. A few of Matthew's friends have had wishes granted for them and the results are smiles on sick kids faces. We are meeting with some of the Wish grantors this weekend and I am already instructing Matthew that his wish should be for 3 additional wishes. We'll see how far we get with that. First snow of the year was Saturday and the kids had a blast. The sled hill was a little spotty but they didn't care.
