Good news everyone, Matthew began speaking again today. Leave it to good old Lightning McQueen. We had his Mack truck out and Chrissy asked if it was mack and Matthew said: Yeah (in only the voice that he has). He then started watching the movie and suddenly remembered the names of all of the characters. He still hasn't said Deedaa but he has said "Mommy" (Grandpa heard it). We are thrilled that his mind has made it back to earth.
We also made some more progress in that they transferred him out of the CICU. He is now on a post surgical floor (room 3085). He was scared during transport and called for Mommy. That made Chrissy happy. His room is much more spacious. Has a giant window overlooking the salt lake valley and a private bathroom, shower, and bed.
Our prayer is that he will continue to improve.
