The plan of action after surgery was to start taking him off of all the paralysis medicine and make his body come awake. That was the doctor's plan. Well, Will's plan was that he needed more sleep. So everybody, if you know Will, you know who one this battle. They are going to let him sleep until morning. Silly doctors
We are pleased with most of his progress and are encouraged by what this mother can see. The doctors are still not saying anything positive but maybe that's their way. The Harbison's see nothing but improvement. Once again, silly doctors. What do they know?
No, I'm just having early morning funnies. The doctors here at the University are amazing!!! He has so many that I can't even count. And I can't say enough good about them. They just don't understand who they are dealing with. Even in this deep of sleep his numbers are improving. So today we are going to try to wake him up again. I told them not to even try until after 11:00 because Will's doesn't do ANYTHING until after that.
Then when he wakes up we want those lungs to start working on their own a little bit.
By the way, I coerced the surgeon to take pictures of the surgery. I know, that's pretty sick. No, it wasn't for me. Will's friend, Brent Clark wanted to use them for his science classes. They are way cool but I don't want to publish them until Will says it's okay. It's amazing how he could even breathe with those old things. And because his chest was open, the brave ones of his family got to see his new ones sitting in his chest. Wow!!!!! Miraculous medicine.
I wanted to ask you people that are praying for Will, that you pray for these awesome nurses in this intensive care unit. They have jumped on some major problems that Will was experiencing and they even told the doctors what they think might help. The amazing part of that is the doctors even listened. You don't see that every day. These specialized nurses go to so much more schooling and they know their stuff. So pray that God continues sending us the perfect nurses to help Will through this. But there was one nurse that we had to fire. Angel and I didn't like her attitude. We said no negative people around Will. I can be pretty fierce protecting Will, but after watching Angel, I am a pussy cat.
As I sit here in the dark after three in the morning watching Will, I feel so blessed that our family has such wonderful friends to help us through this. I know all of you would do anything to help Will and right now, what he needs are your prayers. God has been granting miracle after miracle these past few days. I have faith that He will continue to do this. I am so lucky that I have belief in Him. I can't even imagine how any parent can go through this without God. Someday, with Will's permission, I will tell you of some of these miracles. But for now, just know that God is with Will and I feel His presence in this hospital room. I will continue to update throughout the day. Thank all of you that have been sending comments. Will can read them when he is awake. We love hearing from all of you. It gladdens our hearts.
I thank God for all of you in Will's life.
