Saturday 4/26/08 2:10 am

We just got Will back into bed. He wanted to sit up on the side for a minute. I tried to tell him that it's sleep time but maybe he has his night and day mixed up. Without a clear window there is no way to tell if it's still daylight out or not, so I guess it's understandable. Sumer is his nurse again tonight. He's in a happy place. :) We had our guardian, Carolyn, on during the day. I relax more when she's on because she's not shy with the drs. If Will needs something, she makes sure he gets it. She is tough but in the sweetest way. We like her a lot, and Sumer is so sweet and soft spoken. They make a great team for Will. They both encourage him to do all he can do. I think I have to take both of them home to Hagerman when we go so you all can meet them.

Will stood up two times today. Just stood for about 20 seconds but it's progress in a big way. Dr. Cauhill was here to admire her guy. I think that's why he wanted to stand twice. She brings the best out of him. They got another liter and a half today. We are going to try for another liter in the next 24 hours. Pretty soon he will be back to normal weight. Can't wait. That and the moving is really getting his lungs stronger.

We are still waiting on the tests that they took yesterday. They should be back tomorrow or the next day. We will continue to do the same things over the next two days. Get fluid off and make him move around. He needs to expand those lungs. They are getting so much better. We are watching the kidneys very closely because of all the fluids coming off. They are working overtime but they are doing great.

It hasn't snowed in the last 24 hours, maybe spring is almost here. ha ha Salt Lake weather is almost as crazy as Hagerman's weather.

We were talking today about how we miss everyone back home. It seems a long time ago that we were there. A lot has happened since then. Wonderful miracles we have seen, not just in Will's life but in others also. We have seen patients get better that drs. didn't think they would. I feel so lucky to experience this. It makes me love our Lord that much more. I keep saying it but He really does have his hand upon Will. He's listening to our prayers and answering them in His time. Thank you for your continuing love and support. Have a great Saturday and do something fun in the sun.
God bless
