On his cheek you can see some tissue breakdown. Matthew has been pulling on the tape which holds his cannula in place. Terri and I decided to give Matthew a break from the tape and cannula on his face. We checked his oxygen saturation levels regularly and were delighted to see that Matthew was maintaining perfect saturation.

Those poor little "adorable" cheeks. They have had tape on them daily for almost a year now. It's too bad he finds that cannula one of his favorite play things. If fact, he has found amusement in all the tubes here and there and within easy reach of those busy little hands. Look how trusting Matthew is with his daddy bathing him. That is a bond of love that will always be there, daddy. You have certainly earned it. Love you boys, grandma w
