April 1st Update on Matthew

Just a quick update to let you know that Matthew had his 5th treatment yesterday (Monday, 3/31) and we arrived home at 11:30 pm last night.
Matthew had a very difficult time with the Sunday flight to NY and ended up sleeping most of the day. Matthew felt better on Monday and we were actually able to walk to the hospital for treatment.
Dr. Wexler was glad to hear that Matthew had done better this past week. Since the exam and bloodwork went well, Matthew was able to have his treatment. Matthew slept until early evening when we left for the airport to return home.
Next week is Matthew's 6th treatment. It will be on Tuesday (the 8th) instead of Monday.
On Wednesday the 9th, he will have scans to see if the treatments are working. We will stay until the following Monday (the 14th) when we'll receive the results of the scans.
If the scans show that the treatments ARE working then we will continue treatments (Matthew will have his 7th one that day - the 14th). If the treatments are NOT working, we will discuss our other options that day.
We continue to pray for Matthew's healing. We also pray for grace and strength to meet the challenges of each day. Thanks to each of you that still lift us up in prayer and encourage us with your gifts, e-mails, and calls. We are SO humbled and filled with gratitude.
Love, Nancy

It's good to know some of the details so that we can be more specific when we pray. And we all will continue to pray and ask for healing and trust that God will provide all that Matthew needs, as well as, your whole family.
