Can't believe what a few days make. We have Will sitting up on the edge of the bed last night. Thought it was such a fabulous progress report. Then this morning he wanted to stand for a while. He stood the first time for almost a minute. Then he wanted to try again. So he rested and he tried again. He stood for 5 1/2 minutes.
Then he took a short nap and he woke up and wanted to try to walk a few steps. He walked the six-seven steps to the door. Touched the door and came back. He was hurting pretty good by then but it made him feel sooooooo good.
We still don't know about the swallow test. They want to do a different kind of test where they make you drink this dye and then follow it down your throat to make sure it's all going where it should. This is probably because last time Will aspirated into his lungs. But that wasn't the stuff he was drinking. It was from the feeding tube. But still they would rather be safe than sorry. He told them it would be okay but he really wanted it to happen today. So they were going to try. I will give you an update when I write this morning. I am going to sleep now for a few hours.
FUTURE ATTRACTIONS; You all need to come back and make sure you view the picture that I am posting in the morning. You don't want to miss it.
Take care and God bless
