What the doctor says

Matt does in fact have Guillain-Barré. They've put him on a five-day treatment, so he'll be in the hospital for awhile longer and probably in rehab for a few weeks after that. The good news is that there's a 90-percent recovery rate, and considering the factors in his favor—he's young, strong, and healthy—things look good.
Meanwhile, we've got a lot to be grateful for, like supportive families and health insurance!

Hey Kathryn
thanks for the update. Hard to be so far away from it all but I hope you are well taken care of. When I heard on Sunday, I called the neuro floor at my hospital and asked the head nurse about the disease. As you said, it has a really high recovery rate--thank goodness! My prayers are with you
