Will is getting stronger!!!!!
He has sat up in bed three times today which was his goal and he has stood up twice. When he makes up his mind, watch out. It does exhaust him though. The drs. are pretty sure that he had a prednisone reaction. When he was put back on the vent on Easter Sunday, they had to give him a massive dose of prednisone. When you do that the muscles and nerves kind of go haywire and they like to shut down. It takes a few days after the last dose to come out of it. They are still giving him a lot of medicine to get the fluids off. They did try to wean him off a little of the vent but it still is a no go, but as he gets stronger, it will happen. So yesterday and today we are seeing improvements that should now continue to make his muscles and nerves stronger. Way to go, Will. Oh, and we got one drain tube taken out of the right side. What a day!!! He needed it.
This nessage was sent to Will via my email. I asked Kabina if I could share it with you. I was really touched with the love she has for her coach. Thanks sweetie. You're a special young lady.
Hey Coach this is Bean ;)
I just wanted to take a few minutes to tell you how much you mean to me because I don't do it enough. You are the biggest role model in my life and my inspiration for everything that I do. You have taught me to stay strong, reach out to others, and work hard to achieve my goals and dreams. You are the greatest person I have ever met. I am so glad that you decided to coach the JLT and that you let me be a part of what you do. I still remember you sitting me down and telling me I made varsity junior year. That was probably one of the happiest moments of my life, and even when I was on jv and you let me take stats and travel with varsity.
You have affected my life in so many ways and I am so grateful that I got the opportunity to meet you. This year was extremely hard not having you there in person, but as I stood on the sideline I could see you there coach...standing next to me and every time I looked, you had that smile on your face, and that got me through, I felt your spirit and your heart and as I sat the bench and cheered all season, I cheered twice as much and twice as loud just for you. ;)
Stay strong coach...keep fighting...you have the heart of a champion. I love you very much and not a day goes by, not even a second that I don't think of you. You are in my thoughts and prayers. I thank God everyday for sending you here to this Earth for all of us to meet and be touched by such an amazing and wonderful person.
Love Always and Forever

That's a special sentiment that I wanted to share with all of you. God has blessed Will with people that he has coached that cares for him soooooooo much.
Special prayers again needed for my Aunt Charlotte.
God answers all prayers. He knows what we need even before we do.
God is awesome.
