This will increase his independence and speed his recovery, at least that is their hope. At home Joe and I seem to do too much for him, but how could we not? We know how to raise kids, Tiffany and Joey are self-sufficient, independent, creative, . . . adults. Matthew was well on his way to becoming the same kind of person, but if I can do something to make his life a little easier I guess I do it. He's just been through so much, Joe's pretty much on that page too. He and Matthew actually think that Joe is often the only one who knows how to help Matthew, and in some ways they are right. We've let him become too dependent on us and now we have to let go a bit.
Matthew is NOT happy about this. It took a month for him to get over his anxiety with the therapists at this treatment facility so they could see some progress. Our concerns are many, but we don't want him to take a month to get used to this. He had a pseudo-seizure last night that woke him because he is so anxious about this change. The good news is that therapy is making progress now. With the current psychologist and the addition of a homeopathic doctor that a dear friend has provided for now, we are seeing changes that encourage us. No, he's not walking, but it seems like God has restored our hope and we can see a light at the end of this tunnel. Please pray with us that this transition is easy on Matthew, and us, and that the progress continues until he is on his feet and completely restored!
He can have visitors at lunch time, if you would like to have lunch with him let me know and we can set something up. He continues to be a social guy but the others at TLC are closer to our age than his, not so fun all the time. We watched "McFarlan" last night, it came highly recommended. At the end I said, "I really like that story, it was inspirational." Matthew's response, "Me too, but I like mine better. Mine's just not over yet." Amen Matthew!
