January 24

Hey, Friends,
Alot has happened since the last post. Sorry it's taken so long to update. Since our last post, Matthew battled a stubborn virus with bad headache and high fever which took him to the hospital for a battery of tests including a spinal tap. The virus subsided but the headaches from the spinal tap have persisted. Consequently, he did NOT have chemo on Tuesday, the 23rd, but had an MRI of his head instead. Thankfully, we have received word this morning that all was clear on the MRI. He will see a Neurologist about the headaches and go ahead with Chemo treatment today (January 24th) and tomorrow.
Matthew was able to see his friends in Johnson City which was a big boost. They are such good "buds" and took good care of him.
We have so many taking such good care of us in SO many ways. Thanks for the encouraging words, cards, prayers, meals, and many other "random acts of kindness"!! We are blessed!!

Sorry to hear about the virus and headaches. I hope they can fix the headaches fast. It sure is wonderful that the MRI was clear. We are thinking of you and sending up prayers for you and your family every day. Good luck with the next round of chemo. Keep on fighting, Matt.

We miss you, Matt! Daily we remember you and recall those fun things we do/did in here. It's not the same without you,though, so come fall we are expecting to see you in your usual place! Hang in there and know you're in our thoughts and prayers. Deanna and the gang @ ETSU MGMT & MKTG!
