London has completely outgrown his clothing and winter is upon us. We had generous donations of boys clothes from Theresa Bettale for younger clothing. Does anybody have older clothes?
Toddler 6T or boy's Small. 13 Shoes
We're looking for
Pretty much all of his clothing.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
His coughing is good and hard, however, he is not able to personally swallow as of yet. This is an issue with getting his tubes out. Another issue is the inability to clear his own throat and clear his fluids. Matt is able to effectively request pain medication when he is in pain and he is able to communicate that he wants his eye patch on or off. Matt is still super annoyed and angry at the tubes in his mouth/throat and that is a great sign. He's fighting, he's aware, he's in there. He slams down his tied down fist a lot because he is uncomfortable. Good signs.
Today, the nurse told me that they had scheduled in a physical therapist to get Matt into a chair to train him back to a sitting position. YES! Hopefully just 2-3 days left on these tubes and Matt can be more comfortable.
He is improving, he is looking better. I am encouraged. We are not out of the woods yet, but improvement is fantastic.
THANK YOU to all of our LOVING and AMAZING friends for coming to visit and loving on/encouraging Matt... and me... and London. XOXO
I'll give the answer that I give everyone. "Being here is better than not being here." I am very grateful that I am still here, but that is not to say that life is easy. Thanks to everyone who has donated so far. My family could not have survived without your assistance.
Here is a rundown of my current situation:
- My physical syptoms are mostly the same. I'm getting stronger to live with the disabilities.
- My time at the hospital was mostly "We don't know how to fix you." while my time at rehab was mostly "We know you're broken, let's figure out how you can take care of yourself."
- I'm back home, but that just feels like the next level of rehab... everything is a little bit harder.
- Since moving right now would be stressful, we are staying in our current house. If the perfect home comes along, we'll take it. Otherwise, we will stay until my lease is up in September.
- My son isn't connected to me anymore and screams when I interact with him. He is slowly getting closer, so I hope he'll come around in a few months.
- I get marginally better at anything I put my mind to, but this is going to be a long recovery.
- Therapists are coming once a week, but that is only as good as I work. We'll see. A week ago I couldn't have typed this but I'm a little improved as I have tried.
- All visits are welcome. Come on by!
