A Quick Update

The first week as an inpatient at TLC went better than we expected.  The team there was prepared and did a great job of preparing Matthew. We are so grateful to his psychologist there and the TLC director for such a smooth, well planned change.  On Friday afternoon Matthew was able to come home for the weekend.  He did come home for dinner each evening, but by the third night we left him with the staff there. They helped him get ready, and get to bed.  That should be such a small thing, and it is when someone is healthy.  To us its a big deal though, it takes a great deal of effort and patience.  Matthew keeps amazing me over and over with his strength and his faith.  He is making slow and steady progress physically as well as emotionally and mentally.  Again, I wonder if he simply has been healed enough before now to be healthy.  The homeopathic doctor, essential oils and all the efforts at Casa Colina seem to be coming together to make a difference during this time.  

Thanks to those of you who had lunch with him this week, he loved each day he had visitors.  We had a great 4th of July yesterday with our "adopted" family the Longe's.  This was the year I was able to get a photo of Matthew with his "brothers from another mother" when he didn't look silly, just like his handsome self.  We continue to pray for complete restoration and healing, God is good.
