They just came and got Will's xray. This is the time they do the hospital patients. So Will had a pretty quiet evening. He is getting his sats down and that's good. The doctors have talked themselves out of doing ct scan at this time. To do the contrasting ct, they have to put dye in him and it could cause kidney damage. His kidneys are already compromised because of all the fluid going through him. So they decided to wait. Good call, drs. They kept him sleeping all evening and through the night. He just wakes up for a few minutes to ask for more pain meds. They do roll him every two hours to keep bed sores from developing. He doesn't like that because it hurts but he lets them do it anyway. So we will see what today brings. I haven't got a clue what is on the agenda for today. Probably trying to get Will's vent settings lowered. They have to do it slowly.
I just wanted to tell you what all the comments and emails have done for us as parents and for Will. We read them to him but he ones that have been sent today and yesterday will have to wait until he comes off of the meds. There is one particular that was sent to my email (email@example.com) today that meant so much. I know this person doesn't want to share it with everyone but JW you're pretty special. It's going to mean a lot to Will to hear what you had to say. This was way back when Will was in high school. WOW. Will is still giving people inspiration. Again, we feel very privileged to be able to call him our son.
I forgot to mention that yesterday was the one month anniversary of Will's new lungs. They are going to be so good when we get everything working the right way. I will keep everyone updated when we know anything today. Praying is the most powerful way to help right now, so thank you all for your prayers. (And the comments help us to keep Will motivated)
I hope God pours out His blessings on all of you like He has done for us.
