Matthew had a wonderful and busy Birthday weekend. His cake from was just amazing. Jenn from created a woodland fairy cake for Matthew. He was so happy when he saw it for the first time. He looked at every little detail and told us what he wanted to eat first.
He was nervous when family and a few friends started to arrive at our house, but it didn't last long. He was excited for the rest of the day and enjoyed opening all of his presents and getting to eat a small piece of his "special" cake. The cake never left his belly. Matthew said it must like it there. After several hours we ended up venting over 20 ounces of chocolate liquid out of Matthew's belly. It just wasn't moving anywhere. He enjoyed eating the cake so much that it was worth it. He ended up having a belly ache this afternoon and into the evening. His belly was much more distended tonight but not as big as it would get before his surgery. This is the first time since his surgery that we have noticed that much belly distention. I am assuming it's from the cake yesterday. Again, as long as his belly settles down in the next day or two, it was worth it and I am sure Matthew would agree. He loved his birthday and his birthday cake.:)))

This morning we also attended the MDA bowl-a-thon put on by our local postal workers. Matthew started the event by rolling the first ball. He had a good time watching everyone bowl while he colored in his new coloring books from his friend Linda.

The rest of the day was spent resting at home. He is exhausted...
