I had some pictures with me here in Salt Lake, I thought I would share them with you. The first is Will when he was four days old. (the picture with the other kids are his two cousins, Christi and the new baby, Billie) The rest of them, he is wearing red, I must have liked him in red. Except for the picture of him playing basketball. See the guy in orange #11--that's not Will. Will is the one right behind Tommy. How funny is that picture, I don't know what his coach was thinking at the time. :) Wasn't he just so cute!!! Okay, that's the mother in me, couldn't help it.
Will's blood gasses were not where the drs. wanted them, so they weren't able to wean him off the vent. But they are going to try early this morning. Still can't have any more pain meds. He didn't have a good day yesterday because of his pain. He slept for just a couple of hours tonight. We are going to read him all his cards and emails that have come in. Other than that, I think we will put off his birthday celebration until later. I will go and get a cake to share with all his caregivers today. Maybe by the time Angel and Aaron come up this weekend, he will feel like celebrating. If things happen today, I will let you all know.
It's hard to believe that 34 yrs ago I met my amazing son. It seems like yesterday. What a ride it has been, and what a privilege it is to be a mom. I thank God all the time for allowing me this blessing. So Tom and I will celebrate even if Will doesn't feel like it today.
By the way, I drove back to our apt. late this afternoon and it was a blizzard. Snow is still on the ground. Yesterday it was 80 degrees. What is with that??? Well, I hope everyone has a great day, snowy or sunny. Thanks for the prayers to get off the vent today. This next year is going to be so AMAZING for Will. What a change it will be.
God bless all of our friends and family.
