Matthew is the youngest of our three boys. He has been diagnosed with Mitochondrial Disorder Complex I and III, Chronic Intestinal Pseudo Obstruction, FTT and Glucose Intolerance. 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.

Matthew's PICC line is out. We brought him to the hospital this evening and it was taken out by one of the IV nurses. He was very brave and sat on my lap and even said it tickled. No news yet about when the team phone conference will be. Matthew also went to his pediatrician's office today for his routine two week check up. She hasn't heard from his doctors in Boston in quite some time and said that she will also be available anytime for the conference. She still thinks that Matthew needs insulin.

We had yet another one of Matthew's favorite activities at preschool today. The class tried out a brand new sprinkler. Matthew went through the sprinkler one time(with the help of his aide and our OT therapist). As you can tell by the attached picture, he didn't like it, but he didn't cry.
He had a much better time sitting with his friend Saige on a towel and watching his friends get wet.
