Mommy gives Matthew his breathing treatment. The tube leading to his mouth is his "nebulizer" filled with Albuterol. It projects a medicated fog towards Matthew's face that he breathes in to expand his lungs. Notice the specialy selected "I Love Daddy" bib. I couldn't help myself. Posted by Picasa

I have been fasinated with your blog and impressed with your courage. My son was sick for a short time when he was 18 months old and I remember the scared "hold your breath" feeling that you have every day. Now that Matthew is home I hope you can breathe a little easier (and Matthew too) My son is 15 now, how time flies. You will look back on this time when Matthew is fifteen, and wonder how you got thru it. I retired from my job as a police detective last year, so to you Micheal, my brother in law enforcement, I salute your courage, and you are in my thoughts and prayers everyday! -Nancy Rogers

Looking at this beautiful Matthew with his big blue eyes and red hair, is such a joy. Soon this will all be routine for all of you. Matthew, in time, will run get you his nebuilzer and tell you it's time for his treatment. I know the first couple days are pretty scarey with all the equipment; but that too will become normal. I would walk on "hot coals" for this little man, Matthew. God love you as I so love you! grandma w

It is so wonderful to see him home and sitting up and looking so adorable. The pictures are all so cute. Terri & Michael are amazing parents and are handling this new challenge so well. I love you all so much.
