Tuesday May 27th 2:43 am

It's been a busy day today. We started the morning off early. Will didn't have a great night just because his blood sugars were all out of whack. He started the evening in the 300's (normal is 90-120) and then by early morning he was what they call "bottomed out" which means it's too low to read. So they gave him glucose (sugar) and then he felt better. But he didn't feel good all night so he didn't sleep.

So Will got his breathing treatment early because we were going down to xray at 8:30. We couldn't start a trial test because then we would be interrupted by the xray. So we sat there and waited and waited. Hospital time again- they came at 10:15. Then when he got back he did another treatment and started a t=trial. He went for 3 1/2 hours. He wasn't having a great day, it seemed every time he turned around he was vomiting. So he couldn't sleep during the day. He did start to feel better towards night. Around midnight he did his walk down the hall. That takes everything out of him, but I'm so proud that he does it anyway. He's sleeping well right now.

Tomorrow they are going to do a bronch on him to check things out in his lungs. So I will let you all know what's happening with that. His xray showed some improvement from last week. Yea. I will ask Dr. Cahill when I see her how much has he improved and will let you all know about that too. I haven't heard anything about the young man next door in a while so I don't know how he's doing, but keep praying, please. Thank you

And before I forget to share, we moved across the hall in room #6. We did this because the drs. thought that we needed a change. Maybe they saw the look of insanity in my eyes. The room is exactly the same but we have a window. The view is the top of a building with a bunch of air conditioners on it but that's just fine. It means so much to be able to look out and see the sky again after 11 weeks in that same room. I told the nurses we should have a housewarming party, so maybe tomorrow I will go buy some treats and throw us a party. Everybody would like that.

God bless

It's great to hear that you are doing better right now. Sadie says that she misses you, Will. She wants to know when she can come play on the toys with you (the slide, she said).

Coby is going to go to his first full day at day care today and Sadie said she will make sure noone touches him but the grown ups and her. She's being a great big sister.

In case you're wondering, I'm in Boise this week. I guess I'd better run, but we wanted to say hello before Sadie left. Sadie says to tell you she loves you Will and Aunt Terri and Uncle Tom too.

I had a very nice visit with your mom at the Harvest Farm fund raiser car wash. It was a busy week end with taking care of our precious gandchildren, car wash, and decorating memorials. My baby brother rode his Harley from Albuquerque and we took mom to tell us what she wanted decorated.

I am so glad you got a room with a window. Celebration!!! We don't think of those small details that helps our mood.

Will, God was our help in the past and is our help now and will be our help in the future. That is a promise directly from God that we can hold onto. Keep persisting even though it is really tough. You are an inspiration as by now you have heard alot.
