A Step In The Right Direction
Today was a better day for our little family. Matt seemed to be feeling much better today. We were going to try to go to sacrament meeting but we just couldn't seem to get out of bed. Matt was able to be up and around a lot more today but not without it's cost. Tonight he has a lot of ringing in his ears. I called the doctor on call for Matt's surgeon and thankfully he told us that it was normal for someone with a newly placed shunt to experience this. I was so relieved. I was worried that it was an indication that something was wrong and that we would end up back at the hospital. We are very gun shy at this point. I am hoping that he is on the road to recovery and that things will get better from here. We were given some very discouraging news with Matt's surgery and everyday is precious. We don't want to spend any more of them in the ICU. We feel very blessed that we are together and know that the Lord has given us some precious time together. For that we feel very blessed.
