Will's day was busy. He didn't seem to be able to take a breath without someone coming in and doing something. But he did have a short, but nice visit with Coach. He looked forward to that all morning. They worked together and got Will's March Madness picks. I will have to post them later because he hasn't picked his pick for the #1 winning team. He has to think on that. He was really tired so Randy didn't stay too long but they both needed to have some time together. Thanks Coach and Will hopes to see you real soon.
Will's xray was showing some fluid built up and the drs. didn't know if it was enough to stick a needle in and draw it out or just let the body take care of it. They did an ultra sound and it didn't look too bad so they decided not to do it. Will was relieved. Then they took him down to the cat scan machine. You would not believe all the stuff it takes to move him, but they got it done. It just showed that the left lung is still a little collapsed and hasn't inflated far enough so they are going to work on that today. Maybe a chest tube will be taken out this morning.
The ICU dr. came in about midnight and said we were needed to move because they had multiple beds needed in the ICU and they "kick" the people out in order of care needed. I got all the stuff packed up. We were looking forward to going to another floor but then they came in and said they moved three other people out but Will needed to stay here for a while. We are still hoping that maybe today they will move us. It's not a bad place, everyone is so nice but they just have to check you every hour so Will doesn't get too much uninterrupted sleep. Sometimes I think he would just start really turning the corner if they give him 6 hours of sleep.
Then Angel came this afternoon. This causes a whole other set of problems for Will. She loves to bug him. He's just not finding it as humorous as he usually does. But let me tell you, it did a mom's heart good when I turned around and saw Angel rubbing Will's head because he was in so much pain. I wish I had my camera because they will both deny it later. I think they love each other. :) Angel gets to stay until Friday and she will spell Tom and I a little bit. Her new husband is such a sweetheart to give her up for a few days. They still like having each other around. Thanks, Aaron.
So today we are going to work on opening that left lung up and maybe moving onto another floor. He did stand up three times today but he is so shaky that he really isn't holding himself up yet. He needs a lot of help, but it felt good to get out of bed, even though he needs lots of pain meds afterwards. So we will work on that also.
Well, I hope all of our friends that are going through Spring Vacation are having a wonderful time. Enjoy and relax. God is working so hard to give us such great people to help take care of Will, and He has blessed us with such wonderful friends and family that continue the prayers that Will needs. Thank you and I say prayers for all of you also.
