4:42 Wednesday 3/5/08

We have had no major changes in Will's condition yesterday. The doctors are still hopeful that we can get his lungs moving again without any procedures. He is still needing 100% oxygen but hopefully today we will see a change in that too. He got up and sat in a chair three times today and he feels so good when he can get out of that bed. His back still has some bad sores that are healing up. He might get his drain tubes out today. That will help so much so we can position him better and he won't have to stay on his back all the time.

Right now he is sitting up and drinking some milk. It's almost five in the morning. He says the last time he was up this early was when he was coaching jv. Long time ago. I said that was a lot more fun than this and then he said that this could end up many time more fun. How's that for attitude. Some times he's very lucid and sometimes he isn't. He is starting to "wake" up more and understand things. Quite a few times in the day, I still have to tell him that he's in the hospital and that he's had his transplant. They are cutting down his medicines every day so it won't be long where he will remember everything. Boy, he's going to get mad when he finds out I sold his car and took all his money--just kidding.

I still can't believe how many people are checking this blog spot out. I have told the nurses here and everyday they ask many how many "hits" now. What amazes me even more is the prayers that are going up for Will's healing. Everyone is heard by Him and then He sends it back to us with love. We really do feel the love from all of you. Thanks just doesn't say enough. Will is very blessed to have all of you pulling for him. God bless you all.

He loves the comments and thanks for those too. I will let you know how the day goes. We are hoping the lobe of the lung that has collapsed will inflate after moving that plug. That's what we are praying for today.
