Matthew going to Hospital in Columbia SC

As I write, Matthew is being transported to a hospital for teens and children in Columbia.  He will be there anywhere from 5 days to 2 weeks.  We are SO hoping they will change his meds.  Or find what ever is wrong and fix it!  This is a real opportunity for Matthew to get better.  Thank you for your prayers, everyone!!  I went to the local hospital to tell him goodbye.  He was sleepy and laid down on his little pallet, and I covered him with those thin hospital blankets and kissed him goodnight. It was mid-afternoon.  I knew his mother was arriving in minutes to help him make the transition.  She brought change of clothes, etc.  He told me to wake him as soon as she came in.  I was so glad to get to tuck him in like I used to do when he was younger.  That was good for my heart—and maybe his too.  He smiled.  God bless Matthew.

  1. Visit him as much as you can if its possible, they will be what gets him through the whole thing, looking forward to seeing you and members of his other family. And they are so mean with the blankets we were only allowed one each! They were mint coloured with holes in them, I wasn’t impressed 🙁 You are allowed to bring up your own bedding though, I hope someone can bring him an extra blanket?
