Will has had an eventful day. He has sat up in bed and he tolerated it very well. It felt really good to be off his back. The drs. did a swallow test and he was allowed to have liquids, then pudding. That really felt good. He doesn't like apple juice normally but today he loved it. Angel and Aaron went back to Hagerman to begin their life as a happily married couple. Before they left, Aaron gave Will a good foot massage, Will said it was the best. Angel scratched his head with those long nails. He was pretty happy, getting terribly spoiled.
It seems the days go by really fast. Because this is a teaching hospital, there are always people in and out. Yesterday the physical therapists got Will up and sat him in a chair. He wasn't able to do that today because his heart was going too fast. This doesn't concern anyone. The drs. say it happens and then tomorrow his heart will tolerate moving around just fine. Will is hoping today that he will be eating pizza. Nothing wrong with hoping, but I think they are going to try for broth first.
The first thing he asked for when they said he could have liquids was PEPSI. What else??? His voice is still raspy from the vent but it is stronger. He still rests a lot and he is off all but six iv's. He's moving along.
Well, better get back to doing what I do best, watching his lungs breathe. Still amazes me. God is great.
