Friday wasn't the most productive day and if you know Will well, you know that doesn't sit well with him. He thinks something has to be improving or he's not working hard enough. So he didn't get off the vent or any other of the tubes that are running through him. All the drain tubes are still in but he needs those now. He still is draining. He did sleep well tonight, better than he has; sleeping a few hours at a time. I think those relaxation tapes (music with ocean noises) help. He still can't sit up or stand so we do all the exercises in bed that we can. He would do them every hour if they would let him but they know he needs rest. But try explaining that to Will.
He is now getting very thirsty and so we swab his mouth out with these little tiny sponges that we dip in water. Will is getting so ready to have the tube out so he can drink. He asked me to dip the sponge in pepsi and swab his mouth. Now doesn't that sound like something he would ask. I told him if he got permission I would do so, but I don't think that's going to happen.
He also has been asking about March madness. If any of you know some web sites that I can go on and read to him what team is doing what, I would appreciate it. He has his picks to fill out and he's been out of game watching for a while. I don't know where to go to get some information for him.
You don't know how your comments are lifting him up during the day. I really appreciate them and so does Will. If you don't know what to write and you feel funny about having other people read them, just write an amusing story or memory or just hi.
We will see what today brings. Thanks for all your concern.
God bless all of you and hope you have a great Saturday. Do something fun with someone you love.
