There's the whole story.
And now, a few letters that must be written and sent out today:
Dear Nick and Sil,
I hope you are having the time of your life in Brazil! Brasil (I'll spell it your way) is a long way away and my second favorite country in the whole world! I hope your Mom and Dad are doing great and also Grandma and you can tell them hi from us, because I don't speak very much Portuguese! How's that going by the way, Nicholas? I miss you both! I wish you could have been here Sunday but I'm still super glad you are in Brasil. Nick, how is your diseased leg? I hope it is getting a little better. Here are the two funniest things Matt said while he was here, and I thought you'd like to hear them:
1) "Code Word: Ugly."
2) "You take that back right now!"
Matt can be pretty funny. Jonnie, too. But mostly me.
We have peaches coming out of our ears. Too bad you didn't get to have peaches and cream with us. Maybe you could enjoy something delicious and Brazilian instead.
I love you both so much,
P.S. Dad says he loves you. I think he means it.
Dear Matt and Matt's Hospital Friends,
Hearing that you read my humble little blog made a little corner of happiness in my life. Since this discovery, I have been working hard to come up with humiliating stories about My Big Brother to share with you. I think I'll just occasionally sprinkle them throughout, you know?
Have a great day! Go save some lives!
Marie, a recent patient of a hospital.
We all love you more then you could possibly imagine! Thanks for coming to our family!
I love you,
