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.

We had a wonderful turnout for the MDA Stride-N-Ride. Thank you to everyone who supported the MDA today. Almost 11 thousand dollars was raised. Woo Hoo!Matthew was super excited and had a great time. He did sneak a few pieces of sugared gum and lollipops, so his sugars were running on the high side when we got back home(219). Matthew won two costume contests today. One at the MDA walk for "Best Overall Costume" and for "Cutest Costume" at the Mall trick-or-treating this evening. He was dressed as the "King of Lollipops and Gum".
Check out both blogs for new pictures.

Bradley is feeling much better. He just still has such a nasty cough. He will be going back to school tomorrow.

Matthew's braces situation hasn't been resolved yet. The MDA might be able to help us out with getting him a new pair made by a different company if we can't get his fixed. We are also in the process of getting the medicaid waiver for Matthew. They would also cover new braces, but we are not sure how long it will be before all of the paperwork is completed. We have a medicaid meeting this Wednesday morning, but it might have to be rescheduled again. Terry didn't get the time off approved yet.
