It has been a somewhat quiet time in the good old ICU, at least in Will's room. Well, I should say it's quiet until Will's cousin, Danny, comes in. Then all that quiet changes. He is the cousin that lives near here and he comes to visit a lot. So while he was here this afternoon, we decided to sit Will up on the edge of the bed and let him visit. So Angel and Aaron helped with the front of Will and Danny and Antonio, one of Will's favorite nurses, helped with the back. (That just left me in the room-but you know someone had to be the coordinator) Anyway the whole episode was very funny and it was just so good to hear laughter coming from this room. Will stayed up for 22 minutes. Every time it gets longer. The drs. are still trying to wean Will off the vent real soon. His numbers are coming down so I hope it will be soon.
Angel and Aaron are back in Hagerman now and we miss them already. They did have some quality time with Will. Hopefully when they come back up here in a couple of weeks, Will will be so much better and able to talk to them.
I came across this quote, don't know who wrote it but it really fits Will, don't you think?
Tough times don't last.... Tough people do. I think I will put it on a t-shirt and he can wear it when he gets out of the hospital. That's going to be our new motto, besides Will's quote as "It's all going to be worth it."
I have some more pictures to put on the blog from yesteryear. Some of them are funny. But I need to upload them at home because the university guest Internet is way too slow, it just won't upload pictures. If any of you have any pictures of Will from a while ago, send them to my email email@example.com I will ask Will if we can put them on the blog.
This is the beginning of a whole new week with great possibilities and expectations. God has it all under control, but when I was talking to Him last night, I asked Him maybe this could be the week that things turn around for Will. I know it's His perfect timing, but it doesn't hurt to ask. God listens to all prayers.
I hope all of you have a great week also. Lots of prayers coming your way.
God bless you all.
