Matthew is about the same this early evening with a few improvements. He is moving his limbs more and tracking with his eyes more. He is still not talking at all or responding with smiles. The medical team continues to watch him throughout the next 24 hours and then they will decide if they want to do an MRI tommorrow to further rule out stroke. At this point we are all still hoping that this dissassociation is an effect of all the medications his been on. It's really emotional watching him react this way. I miss the sweet personality of our little Matthew. I am prayerful that he will return to us. After an encouraging day, I think he will!


  1. Hurray! I am so glad the chest tubes are out and that you can finally hold him. I love the sweet picture of Chrissy holding Matthew. Thanks for sharing. We are praying for sweet Matthew and grateful for each little improvement. We are thinking of you all throughout the day, everyday.

  2. Think positive! Love will pull him through! He's only two, but his spirit is potent and powerful. Look at all he's been through and has surmounted. Recovery may take awhile, but i believe it will happen. We all join you in this prayer. If there are any more community fasts, let me know so i can join in & represent Chicago.

  3. Yay for improvements! Way to go Matthew!
