When I think about how many systems on Matthew are atypical-- how he has two inferior vena cavas, 1 kidney, missing thumbs, no radial pulses, throat issues, heart anomalies, feet issues, non-rotated intestines, etc-- I'm amazed at how typical Matthew really is. There is almost no system on him that is completely typical, yet he eats baby food, drinks from a bottle he holds himself, he is mobile pulling himself from room to room, he smiles, he laughs, he cries, he claps, he waves, he does almost everything a slowly developing typical 9-10 month old would do. All with his atypical systems. It is just amazing!!
