Our 11 year old nephew Mathew is in Pittsburgh Children's hospital. He had major headaches, mri showed lesions. He was flown there Jan 24.

Now Mathew has multiple lesions on his brain. His left side had stopped responding. His speech is gone, he is down to just a few words. Outwardly there is no rash. no fever, nothing that points to anything. With each MRI there seems to be more lesions. The tests do not point in any one direction. My daughters and I spent Friday and Saturday with him. He was doing much better, we even got some smiles. He was even able to be up walking around a little bit.. we were so happy there was such progress.
This morning when his dad got to his room, he had stop responding to everything. His breathing is very labored, they put in a breathing tube, hooked back up the eeg, and monitors, and moved him back to ICU. He was just able to leave ICU on friday.
The one major praise I have is for the Ronald McDonald house there. Much easier for his family to stay with him. We live 4 hours away from Pittsburgh.

That is so frightening. I pray that Mathew's doctors and nurses will be given wisdom, that his family will be given calm while they wait for the answers, and that Matthew will be given healing. Hugs to you, too.

I will definitely keep him in my prayers and like his facebook page.
What a scary situation.

On a side note, how are you? I think of you often. You were one of the first people I got to "know" when I first started posting here so many years ago. (I used to RoseTC)

I'm so sorry! I can't imagine how scared all of you are. That poor little guy. Prayers and thoughts for him to heal.


OK. Newbie. This is how it works. If your post consists of 80% sanity, 10% stupidity and 10% all kinds of crazy, we immediately focus on the 20% b/c it discredits the 80%.

I just saw that you are in Bradford. My family is in Warren and my nephew is at Pitt Bradford. I am in Oil City. If you ever need transportation or anything delivered please let me know. My family would be happy to help.
