Matthew finally gets out for a walk in the halls

We all did four or five laps around the pediatric unit today. It did take three adults to accomplish this with all of his equipment. I think I ran into Daddy's feet about ten times with the oxygen tank. Oops! Matthew was so cute, though. He was happy to be out and about. He made sure he looked into every single room... just like his Mommy. Love ya, Terri!!

There's our little Braveheart taking a walk and checking everything out. I'm sure it felt good to get out of bed.

Get well soon Matthew. I love you so much.

I manned the IV drip and that was a trip as well. I didn't want any pull on that left hand but that posed a challenge when he started swinging it. Up and back, up and back........ Matthew did seem to enjoy walking and getting out of bed for the first time since Friday morning. He smiled and greeted others walking in the hall like a candy striper. Doctors feel those walks will help loosen up his lungs and get rid of the junk.
