3/21/08 Friday 6:03 am

I probably said everything they did to Will on the blog before this one. After the needle draw, Will slept for about two hours. Then Angel got him in a chair with help from the nurses, of course, and fed him pudding and mash potatoes (not at once). He decided to eat dessert first, I think that should be a law. Anyway, he went back to bed and he's been on the bi-pap machine during the night so he could have a good rest. About 4 this morning, Will needed out of bed again so he sat in a chair. I can't believe after all he went through yesterday that he would even try that. He must really be ready to get out of this place. We don't know what's going on today and maybe the drs. don't know either. We will wait and see. All in God's perfect timing, not ours.

As we go into the most holy of times, as I watch my son sleep and feel so bad for what he has to go through, how much harder was it for God to send his only son, knowing ahead of time the suffering that Jesus was facing. I am in awe of the love that God has for us. So enjoy your Good Friday and stop to remember that we all are loved by God and there is no greater love than that.

I will update you on what's happening with Will today. God bless

Good morning!

I love it Will- eating dessert first is the way to go! Growing up I remember at my Grandmothers house she had a magnet on her fridge that said, "Eat Dessert First, Life is Uncertain." There is a lot of truth to that!
Thank you Terri for sharing your personal perspective of this Easter season- it just brought tears to my eyes this morning reading it. You are a shining light for our Lord and Savior right now. I praise God for you and your family and way He is using you for his kingdom.
We never stop praying....
Lots of love,
From both Curt and Megan

Terri and Tom, I hope you are getting enough rest. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. I think it's about time for this roller coaster to smooth out a little, don't you! Keep hanging in there!

Teri, I have to thank you too. Your faith through this time has been rock solid and it is so uplifting to read your blogs. Hang in there Will, this to shall pass and before long you will be showing those new lungs who is boss! Have a great day! Scott, Jen, Traj, Ryk, and Dax

I lit a candle with extra prayers for that uncooperative lower lung, Will. Jax wants to know if you have pepsi with your mashed potatoes? We are thinking of all of you on this Good Friday and have high hopes that this day will yield brighter news for getting you out of there and SOON.

Sending love to you all

Sending our love and prayers your way! Thinking about your every second of our day! Continue to work hard and strong! We know you will be out of there before too long!

Love you Will, Angel, Terri, and Tom!!!

I finally registered so I can leave comments now!
We are in Hagerman tonight for the first time since last summer and it's a bit boring here without anyone to play cards with. There's no pepsi or licorice, either.
We'll be heading to the big Easter egg hunt in the morning with the girls.
Thank you for keeping up on the blog, we love reading it.
We are praying for you.
The Hunts

Hope you had a great day! You quit being so hard on yourself, your little body has a lot of work to do.
Wanted to let you know that we made it to the Elite Eight tonight and we are on the way! I think of you before every game!
Keep it up and I'll talk to you soon!
