Tonight Terri told me that she was soooooo tired last night when she changed Matthew's diaper that she actually put the same dirty diaper back on the sweet little guy. After she had Magoo snuggly wrapped back in his blanket and he was all settled in and cozy, she went to look for the dirty diaper so she could dispose of it. Imagine the look on her face when she discovered what she had done. (Snoopy laugh!!!)

I am submitting this posting with Terri's permission. So, little Magoo, here's a funny little tidbit for you when you get a little older. By then, I'm sure all of our memories will have faded but, hopefully, this blog will continue to memorialize the funny stuff too.

On the same funny note, when I arrived at the hospital yesterday, walked into Little Magoo's room, he was sitting up in bed with mommy on one side talking with 2-nurses on the other. Matthew was content and looking up at the TV. When he saw me, his little bottom lip went out and he got the saddest looking face and started to whimper as if to tell me all about how he feels. Magoo knew he could "play" to ole grandma and get a lot of sympathy. I had to laugh out loud with this one. It was good to see him back to his antics. When I got up beside him, he rolled over toward me, so I put my arms around him and he closed his eyes, still whimpering. Every now and then he would open his eyes and make sure his sympathetic audiance was still listening.

Terri appeared at ease and said it had been a good day. The nurses were right there and caring for our little hero's needs. I am pretty sure Matthew has maintained a normal temp for almost 48 hours. We all know the cough will remain with him for some time to come; but "home" is lookly more promising by the hour.

Life has it's ups and it's downs and never runs a straight course. I am proud of how mommy and daddy handled this week and picked up the slack on the other DYI Floor, "Do It Yourself". It is important to memorialize both the good and the bad to show Matthew where he has been and how far the King Trio has come. We all must face adversity in our lives. Certainly not by choice but by chance. It is how we handle adversity that makes us what we are today. Matthew has proven over and over again, how strong he is through the loving care of mommy and daddy and God.

Your prayers and support have comforted this family through some pretty rough times, especially this past week. All's well that ends well. Hopefully this week will be a "learning" experience for some, at least make some people "think" and probaby a "wash" for other; BUT, life is still good! grandma w

Thank you for the Snoopy laugh. We all need that. I'd say another miracle of prayer around the country has taken us through another tough time. I can't wait to hear that he is home enjoying the happy times again.

I love you all so much and am so proud of you for the care you have all given to Matthew.

Love, Grandma Sue
