It's going to be a good Thursday, I feel it. Will had a little rough day yesterday. He had to have another couple of units of blood, but it really helped. And because his blood pressure wasn't leveling off, they needed to hold back on the pain and sleep meds. Well, needless to say, without sleep, Will doesn't do too well. So his numbers started to drop and his breathing was getting more labored. Then they said what they needed to work on the most was getting him some rest. Now is the time to say it: "DUH" So they have been letting him sleep tonight, well as much as you can in ICU. His sugars did bottom out at 26 so they had to give him a whole bunch of glucose (sugar) into his veins. We're not sure why any of this happened but it should turn around with all the things the drs. are doing. We got the results of his dobbler test (ultrasound) and he doesn't have any more clots except for the one in his neck. It is still about the same size and shape. That is good news
Tom did some of his moving exercises with Will. Tom stays pretty much all his waking time up here also. We feel better when we are watching everything. It keeps the drs. on their toes also. Not that they aren't already. They are really, really good here. Will is very lucky to have a dad like Tom, not many dads could spend so much time in this little room.
We have had a lot more hits on this blog after the news show. There was one that sent me an email instead of a comment. He said something I want to share. He said, "I am amazed at the spirit of people with CF. They all teach us how life is supposed to be lived." He is married to a woman with Cf who is turning 45 in July. Doesn't that sound about right?
Then another man who has had a transplant eight years ago. He gave us such words of encouragement. I can't wait to share them with Will when he really wakes up.
God is really touching our lives in so many wonderful ways. I can't say it enough, the support we get from all of you is how we all keep going. You make us stronger with your prayers and your motivational comments. God is working overtime here. He is an awesome God.
I don't know what today will bring, I think the drs. will round this morning and decided if they just need to let him rest some more.
Oh, and our niece is having her baby boy today. What a wonderful day to have a baby. Will can't wait. Good luck Billie and Matt. We love you and can't wait to hear from you.
God Bless all of you wonderful people.
