Matthew off all IVs, to be discharged soon

Yesterday throughout the day, they lowered Matthew’s IV medications, and this morning stopped it completely. We are so excited since this means that he is no longer tethered to the IV pole. Now Matthew can put his shirt on since all the IV lines which were in the way are no longer hooked up. Now,Continue reading “Matthew off all IVs, to be discharged soon”
