May 7, 2008 Wednesday 4:46 am

So Will had a somewhat quiet day. He had another unit of blood today which didn't seem to put too much energy into his step. I thought it would by now. But he did walk to the door. I think that might have been too much because he felt terrible the rest of the day. They are going to do some more blood work today and decide their next step. They did put him back on the Lasix tonight to see about the getting off some more fluid. The fluid seems to be our biggest enemy. I wish we could figure it out.

We tried to celebrate Nurses Day here in the unit. Tom and I made posters and put up balloons, we even took some to 2nd east, our old floor. My friend Keri sent these to me, thought I would share.
