Was born on Tuesday, 8th June 2010, at 8:31pm and weighing approximately 2700g.
Matthew passed away in the Neo-natal Intensive Care Unit at the BC Children's Hospital in Vancouver on October 26th at 1:42AM.
Matthew was born at 30 weeks, 5 days gestation, and was diagnosed with a condition known as "Hydrops Fetalis", which means he has an excess of fluid in his skin, caused by his lymph system not forming correctly in the womb. Because of these conditions, Matthew was hospitalized from birth.
This is my tribute to my son.
