A Bump In Our Road To Complete Recovery

Matthew & mom Nikki left Thomas Hospital ER at 6:15 pm in an ambulance to Sacred Heart Hospital/Pensacola. Daddy Will was close behind. Matthew had a couple of episodes this afternoon of low oxygen saturation. Sacred Heart pediatric cardiologists are going to monitor him overnight. He was strong and complaining loudly about the intrusion into his "private time with mom and dad" when he left TH ER. Please pray for this tough little guy.

Our local pediatrician Dr. Paula Drummond assured us that "there will be several 'scares' like this in the next few months but we should expect that Matthew will be just fine over the long term." That's our plan, Dr. Drummond, we thank you for the reminder.

As Matthew's family, it is terribly frightening, we appreciate knowing that this is part of the journey. We thank you all, our friends, for your love, prayers, and concern.
