Mattie’s Movin’

On Thursday morning Mattie is scheduled to MOVE TO KANSAS CITY! He will fly with a medical transport team from Children’s Mercy Hospital. We are REJOICING!! Though the insurance issues are not resolved, the hospital has agreed to transport him. If his insurance still will not pay, there is some financial assistance through the hospital that we can apply for. God is so faithful and we trust Him completely.

I will start packing up tomorrow, but will stay here until Mattie is headed out on Thursday. John, who is in Kansas City, will be there to meet Mattie at the hospital, and I will try not to break any laws as I drive home!

There are no words to describe how much we need this as a family. Deep sigh………..

Oh, and some have asked about how long Mattie will be hospitalized. I simply don’t have an answer to that yet. At this point, we will see what the team at Children’s Mercy have to say when they evaluate him. Though he is on oxygen and still being fed through a feeding tube, if all else is stable, we could go home with those. I’m pretty sure they will want him there a few weeks to get him set up for the long term care that he will be needing and to get him as strong as possible before a discharge. All I really long for at this point is to be sitting on my couch holding Mattie on Christmas morning.

  1. Can I just say Hallelujah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PRAYING for your Christmas MIRACLE!!!!! Knowing that our Father desires to give us good gifts đŸ™‚ Can’t imagine the smile on your face that your little man gets to come closer to home!!!

    Now…..when our Matthew went off in the helicopter at a week old…..it was hard not to break a few laws, but PLEASE be safe. Mattie needs his mommy and so do your other 6 treasures đŸ™‚

  2. Praise God! A true family Christmas of you all together and we will continue to pray for more health and healing. Enjoy!!!

  3. Tracie, seeing your family picture in the background of that picture brought tears to my eyes. I’m so thankful for Mattie’s life and the blessing he is to you all. Also praying that you will be together soon! Oh, what love that little boy will know forever when he’s surrounded by both parents and his siblings!
