Matthew had some big feats today:
He now only has 3 things hooked up to him.
For breakfast he had Fruit loops, Chocolate milk and French Toast.
Sat up in a chair on his Mom's lap
He stood, with some discomfort, for about 5 minutes.
With the help of a nurse and his Mom he WALKED to the bathroom.
Final word is that the tumor was in fact benign.
His body seems to be draining the brain/spinal fluid through it's own normal process rather than the drain they installed during surgery which could mean no shunt will have to be placed.
And he wrote his name today!
He still prefers to keep quiet and lay very still but all reports say that he had a big smile on his face when a group of Arizona Cardinals players and the mascot showed up in his room.
Every day is getting better and better and we know that it is thanks to our Father in Heaven and so many people praying on behalf of our Matthew.
