Matthew spiked a fever of 101`F Saturday afternoon and we were advised to go to the Sunrise Hospital ER. Once there his fever was up over 102. He has been admitted to the hospital and we are upstairs on the fourth floor. They have done every test imaginable and believe he simply caught my cold. With Matthew, however, nothing is that simple. It is too risky to be home while he has a fever and chest congestion because it could turn into pnumonia and his lungs aren't able to handle that. We don't know how long he'll be in the hospital but we are spending the night with him because the nurses have other patients in addition to Matthew. He has a nasty cough and seems like he feels much the same as anyone with a cold, but overall he is OK.

It's too bad Matthew can't "quil" the cold like you did. I can't believe how fast Vicks cleared up your congestion. Poor little Matthew just wasn't up to sitting by himself. Nothing like a little help from his daddy. Get well soon, sweet baby.... grandma loves you! grandma w

Poor little guy just doesn't get a break and neither do Mommy & Daddy. I know you are both spending 24 hours a day with him just like you do at home. You are amazing parents and he is an amazing little boy. Please God, take care of Matthew and make him well so they can go home soon.

Love, Mom (Grandma Sue)
