What I wanted to explain to them is that Matthew is Super Baby. He does have a small airway, and has struggled with croup (after falling off the bed and breaking his nose), but he won't need a tracheotomy because he will fight through everything to get air. I witnessed it last April. He does metabolize anesthesia slowly, but he always comes out of it. I've witnessed it 6 times, after each surgery. He's had a heart that was failing, but he is healed. His skull was cut from side to side, and almost bled out, but he came home 3 days later. His intestines were twisted, and he didn't drink for 5 days, but he is healed.
I may be overly optimistic about Matthew and his ability to overcome all obstacles, but he hasn't given me any reason not to be. And I pray that is the way it will always be. Matthew is Super Baby, taking on the scariest of scary things, and coming out the other side victorious and stronger.
