I told you all that I had a little surprise today. I am going to be on the news either tonight or tomorrow. This is how it happened. Someone who has been touched by Will's story told someone else and then they told the news show. They wanted to do a story on how the blog can connect all these people together. They were very inspired by Will and how he has been doing in the hospital. They couldn't believe the many, many people that check on Will everyday. See how special you all are. Everyone that cares for Will has made this happen. Thanks
Anyway they wanted to do a human interest story on that but I told them I needed to plug organ donation also and they said it would be okay. So I was able to do that and the producers wanted to have Will a part of it. The cameras wanted to shoot him but they aren't allowed in ICU. So they just shot me. I know you all think that I'm not shy, but I really was. I hadn't had any good sleep the last 30 hours and I was tired. I told them they had better take anything out that made me seem like a babbling idiot. I don't know what all they put in the segment. I will see when it comes on the TV. Will's friend told us they could get a tape of it so when I get home I will share with you all, or if there is a website I can tell you what link it is.
One of the hardest questions they asked me was what made my son so special that hundreds of people checked up on him every day? I told them they didn't have enough tape on their machine for me to list all of the qualities. They said they might want to do a follow-up on Will later when he gets out of ICU and see if people are still blogging to check up on him
Will is having another quiet day. The drs. said that it must have worked something right because his lungs are a little better today. They want to keep doing that for a few more days. Just letting Will walk as much as he is able and start eating. He needs to eat about 3200 calories a day. They give him 1500 in the feeding tubes and they want him to eat the rest. He gets in about 300 calories right now. So he has a way to go. It just boggles my mind that people "have to" put on calories. I don't seem to have any trouble at all. :(
He's taken two walks today and he will take one more when I get back up to the hospital.
Tomorrow's Easter!!!!! YEA
