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.

This was how Matthew looked after two days of being discharged from Boston after his ileostomy. He was so dehydrated despite drinking a ton.

His poor eyes were sunken like I have never seen before
This was the night we brought him to Fletcher Allen Jospital. He looked very bad. :(

After six days in the hospital again, he was looking much better:)

Matthew and Ava!
Still not feeling well at the walk.
Monday was Matthew's first day of first grade. A few weeks late, but he made it.

Matthew's lost weight this past week from his surgery. He needs to put the weight back on . He's so thin. It took us so long to get some weight on him. I hope it's not the case this time.

Matthew's sweet friend Eithene. She wasn't feeling well and didn't want to smile. Smile or no smile, she is a beautiful little girl. :)
