It's Monday already. The big doctors are all back today although his main specialist came in Sat. and Sun. just to check on Will. She said next weekend she probably won't feel the need, but right now she wants to be on top of things with him. That makes us feel better.
This wasn't as good as day as Saturday was. He was in more pain so he took more pills so he didn't walk or exercise as much because he slept the day away. Dr. Cahill, his main doc, said to expect days like this. Speaking of sleeping, once Angel and Aaron left this afternoon, I decided I needed some good sleep. Tom took over and I went back to the apt and slept, didn't wake up until midnight. Wow, can't remember when I slept 7 hours. I usually only need about 5 hours normally. It's so nice to be able to do that, knowing that Will will be taken care of while I slept. His dad is a good man, I'm blessed that I picked a good one there.
Will's xray showed more junk. Now they are calling it pneumonia (again spelling doesn't count) so they are really working on the left lung a lot to get that junk out of there. His body is still not getting rid of the excess fluid because the kidneys are tired. He still is quite swollen in his arms and legs although I can see some improvement there. He only had one walk today but he went twice as far (with his sister goading him on, she can be mean). Aaron shaved him before he left and he said it made him feel five pounds lighter. And in his spare time he's listening to his ipod a lot and Iread his comments from here. We haven't heard yet if he gets to move out of this unit today or not.
Will isn't getting his nutrition that he needs, so Aaron suggested that I make him some protein milkshakes, so today I will go buy a blender and try that. I bet that will make all the difference. We don't really want to put another feeding tube in if we can help it.
I hope everybody's Monday is a good one. Ours will be, I'm sure. Thanks again for all your concern and prayers.
