My Fifth Year

Pulmonary Hypertension (cont...)

5th October 2000

Having another hydrotherapy session with Carli, my physio, to help get me walking again.

Here I am lying very still while I have a chest and neck CT scan to see if anything new shows up.

CT Scan


16th October 2000

After one of this mornings Iloprost doses Matthew's eyes locked to one side and he wasn't able to respond. This may have been due to a brain haemorrhage. His oxygen saturation dropped a number of times. Finally, his heart just gave up and stopped. Matthew died at 1:05pm this afternoon. 

His brave fight is finally over, he can now rest. He touched many people's lives with his infectious smile, life will never be the same again without him. 

We all love you Matthew.

Please keep Matthew in your prayers.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us over the last 2 years.


  This website started as a way for family and friends to keep up with Matthew's progress. Now I will keep it online as a tribute to my son, a beautiful boy who had to endure more in his short life than anyone should ever have to.
