Will is sleeping just like I predicted he would in my last blog. He does get pain meds every hour and that helps, the sedation he has received from yesterday's procedures has him sleeping very well. When the drs. come around this morning they will let us know what is going to happen over the next few days. I forgot to mention that Will did need a couple more units of blood yesterday. I need to keep track of that so when we get home I can get all that paid back and then some. I will have to start our own blood drive or something like that.
Many of you have emailed me and have shared that they have become organ donors since Will's transplant. That makes us so happy, and God forbid that it will ever be needed, but if it does happen what a wonderful gift of life. If you haven't already signed up or told family members you want to be a donor, do so as soon as possible. If you have any questions about it or concerns, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will try to answer them for you.
This came from our friend, Somer Love, off her blog spot. Thanks Somer for sharing the good news:
May Declared National Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation praised the U.S. Senate for officially recognizing May as National Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month and encouraging public awareness and understanding of CF.
Introduced by Senators Patty Murray (D-Wash.) and Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), the legislation calls attention to cystic fibrosis, a fatal, genetic disease, and supports research to find a cure.
“We are thrilled to have the Senate’s support for our mission to find a cure for cystic fibrosis. We are making dramatic progress in the development of new therapies for the disease and in extending life expectancy,” said Robert J. Beall, Ph.D., president and CEO of the Foundation. “On behalf of all those affected by CF, we thank Senators Murray and Inhofe for their leadership and commitment to the cystic fibrosis community.”
Thank you everyone who wrote to their members of Congress!! It worked, together we all made a difference!!
