The "Mighty Matthew Benefit" was a huge success despite one small bump in the road.
Matthew's ileostomy prolapsed for the first time ever just minutes before the walk began. I remembered his nurse in Boston saying to pour sugar over the stoma. With the help of some of my wonderful friends, we found some sugar at a nearby house. The house we knocked on ironically happened to be the home of a school nurse. She quickly found some sugar and welcomed a group of complete strangers into her home. The sugar seemed to retract his stoma some, but we ended up having to leave the walk and bring Matthew to the ER. A little over an hour later, his stoma was in and "Mighty Matthew " was back. :) We returned for the end of the morning activities and matthew was able to release some special balloons for Eithene's 5th Birthday.
Matthew rested at home in the afternoon and had a blast at the Naked Turtle for the evening event.
THANK YOU to all that helped, supported us and shared in this magical day.
