First of June Sunday 5:19 am

It's just unbelievable that it's June already. Summer vacations are coming up.

What a great day we had yesterday. Will had company and he enjoyed them so much. Randy (Coach) and Donna came back this morning. Well, Randy did anyway, Donna caught a cold so she didn't come anywhere near Will. While Coach was here, Megan and Curt with little Tyler came up and visited. As you can imagine, Tom and I went a little baby crazy. In fact, for most of the visit we had Tyler on different floors just walking and playing. Babies are definitely God's way of making life's troubles disappear. He was such a doll, for sure. He gave us his beautiful smiles and he gave me a kiss, not Tom though. I still can't believe he was ever here. The time went so quickly. Will couldn't see the baby because they don't allow anyone under ten in his room. That's probably the only rule that we haven't broken yet. Will really did enjoy his visit with Randy and Curt. They talked a lot of the good ol' days. I got some cute pictures and I will put them up tonight on the blog. Curt and Megan brought up a real "housewarming" present from Layne and Judy and Carrie and Joe. It was so sweet, our first housewarming gift. Thanks for the suprises.

Will had fun but he still had to get his workout in. He went on his t-trial a couple three times and he went for a walk. The walk didn't go as well as it has been going but there are days like that.
The last of the the biopsies came back and it shows the beginning of rejection. For those of you that have been reading the blogs, you know we have said that rejection is normal and everyone goes through it one time or another. It's just a matter of adjusting his medicines. So he's on a high dose of an iv steroid (Solu-medrol) for the next five days and then they taper it down after- wards. The steroids are what they had a problem with last time so the drs. are giving a smaller dose of it this time. Hopefully he won't have the reaction he had last time.

The one and only Dr. Cahill is gone on a two week vacation to Isreal. We are having a small case of anxiety about her being gone. That's a long time for us. She's been our one constant on this journey but we are in good hands I know. We are praying hard for her safe return. That would be a scary trip in this day and age.

Willie's cousin, Brenda and her husband, Lance came up from Pocatello for a visit this evening. It was so good to see them. She has a way of making Will smile with all her antics. We haven't seen them in awhile. She also gave Will a good foot rub. What is it with people and their feet needing rubbing??? I can't stand anyone touching my feet, Yucky.

The visits were so good, and Will was tired, but it was a good tired. He's been sleeping through the night. It's already 6:00 in the morning. Sunday---I hope everyone has a good church to go to and enjoy it for the fellowship. It's so important. Maybe we can ask for prayers for the anti-rejection medicines to do their job and keep Will on this road of good work outs.

God bless

Sounds like you are doing awesome Will. I wouldn't expect anything less. Your housewarming party looked like a hit, wish we could have been there! We have been partying here quite a bit, Trajan turned 7 May 25 and Ryker turns 5 June 3 so it seems like that is all we have been up to!! Hope that you continue to have some good days, can't wait for the housewarming party in Hagerman. Scott, Jen, Traj, Ryk, and Dax
