A "glitchless" version of our CNN interview

This is the "Broken Government ~ Healthcare ~ Critical Condition" special that CNN aired a few times. I wish there was a way to get our politicians to watch this ~ they need to see what is happening in the "real world".

The Zeigler's are up first, then we come on at the 5:25 mark til the end.

Quick update

Matthew is beginning to feel better. His retching is under control now, too. That was a real problem this time around. He retched non stop for a couple weeks and it was quite miserable for him. (us, too... that is never fun to watch)

He had a great day today. Still a little junky in the lungs, but we are working on that by extra inhaler treatments that contain steroids, percussion treatments and manual chest manipulations. He loves the chest manipulations, he just lays there and let me do my thing. He usually starts giggling. We are doing everything possible to avoid that dreaded Prednisone. We avoid that like the plague.

It's been nice to see him smile and be happy again.
That makes me happier, too.

It's been a tough month, that's for sure. These little guys w/ lung issues really take this kind of thing hard. It's a reminder how fragile he really is. He's not like a normal kid when they get a sniffle. For us, there is no such thing as a "simple cold".

Still not feeling so hot

Hopefully he'll be better tomorrow... tomorrow will be his last day on antibiotics.

Mike just got "the call" :-)

He starts his new position as a Sergeant on March 8th.

I am so proud of him, he worked so hard for this.
He's beaming with that great smile of his.

Feeling Better

A five day regimen of Antibiodics coupled with his own ever-improving immune system has brought Matthew out of his cold. It is great to see him this chipper first thing in the morning.
