I thought this would be a good picture today. What with that great win tonight. This will bring a few people some fun memories. This picture is of Will after one of his long hospital stays. He missed the basketball shooting camp that summer and the two people that ran it decided to do something real nice for him instead. They knew he was a big Celtic fan so they bought him this Celtic jacket, hat and ball and gave it to him. That was one of the nicest things that happened to him that year. We still have that jacket. So this young man with with Will is Tommy Connor. He is now head coach at Westminster College in Salt Lake City. He and his father, Buss, were very supportive of Will as he was growing up. I'm sure Tommy doesn't mind that I put this picture up. I think the shorts are cute :)
Will's day wasn't a good one. He seems to be taking a step backwards. His heart rate is up and his need for more oxygen is up. This could mean that he has a infection on board. The bleeding from his trach has slowed up some but is still there so they want to get that under control also. So they won't be moving him out of the unit for a while. The longer trach that we were waiting for didn't come in today so maybe tomorrow. He did do another t-trail and he stayed on it for seven hours which was good but he slept through almost all of it. He was able to walk a little bit but he didn't do well so they had to get him back into bed.
Speaking of sleeping, Will slept through the whole Celtics game. I know he's not going to be happy about missing one of the most exciting games of the year. Tom tried to wake him up but Will was just too tired. That's alright because sports center keeps replaying it over and over again. Big uspet. One more game and they have the championship. Go Celts!!!!
One of Will's favorite cousins, Missy, has been having a lot of trouble with her kidneys. She lost her right kidney now and they put a shunt into the other one to drain off infection a few days ago. Later this month they will do surgery on her. Many people do okay with just one kidney. So please say prayers for her also. I didn't want to put her name on the blog until she said it was okay. (I didn't mean to be cryptic or suspenseful a few days ago. Sorry I worried people)
Hope you all liked the picture. I will put more up later. Please pray for Will's body to fight off the infection or whatever is happening. Today hopefully will be a better day. If anything changes, I will put it on the blog so we can get some prayers going. Thanks for being our prayer warriors.
