He has been through countless tests and procedures in the past 8 years . We do not know what the future holds for him, but we are going to do our best to cherish every day with him. Stay strong little man.

It was a very busy weekend.Matthew had a high blood sugar reading on Friday afternoon. I took it twice and it was in the 260's. I took him for blood work and it took our local hospital an hour to get an IV nurse to get down to the lab to draw the blood. By the time we got back home it had been 1 1/2 hours sinced I had last checked his sugar. I checked it again just to see if it had gone down and it was down to 69. To me, that seems like a big drop in a short amount of time. We also missed Dr. Watkin's call while we were at the lab... Terry called him back and he didn't answerOn Saturday, we had our annual garage sale and made over 300 dollars!! Matthew also went to another birthday party for one of his preschool friends. He had a wonderful time and the weather was nice. He went in the bouncy tent when it was empty and when he noticed only a few other kids were in it. Most of his friends went swimming, but he didn't mind. He doesn't like to get wet. He had just as much fun squirting his friends with a water blaster from outside of the pool

I took him tomTarget after the party to get some new My little ponies. His friend Pam sent him some money and he wanted to use it to buy ponies! Thank you Pam.

Matthew had a good day at preschool today. He only has a few more weeks left before he graduates. He keeps saying that he doesn't want to leave preschool. The boys have dentist's appointments this week in Albany and Matthew has an appointment to have his AFO's checked in Albany as well.
