June 25 Wednesday 3:00 am

It was moving day again at the ol' Harbison Hilton Hospital room. We never could get the air conditioner to work and it was getting so hot so they moved us again. This turned out to be a good thing because we got a bigger room. It's amazing how much a few square feet can seem to be. Karen, who is the person in charge of the ICU tried, tried and tried some more to get the a/c to work and we really appreciate all she did. But this new room is great. While I was home sleeping this afternoon, Angel decorated Will's room with the Fourth of July decorations I had bought and she had to move Will too. So Angel was very busy and I had a real nice surprise when I came back up.

Will had a great day and maybe it was because his little sister came up to see him. She makes him smile with her goofy things she does. He still had to work hard today. The drs. decided not to do a bronch. We are really glad for several reasons, one being that when they do a bronch we seem to loose a day of forward moving and Will is on such a good roll. The second is that it hurts, plain and simple. They still might decide to do one but right now they don't think he needs one. Yea!!!
Will did two t-trials today, 15 minutes more than yesterday. Today Will walked clear to the door. That's four feet and back again. I know we have been there before but this time it seems different---more---oh, I don't know how to describe it, it just seems that this will be the last time we will have to start over again. I hope that makes sense. He told a good friend of his, Brent, that he will be out of this hospital by the end of July. That's a good goal.

Today he will do some more dialysis and they hope to pull more fluid off. Then he will still do his t-trials and walk again. With our bigger room he is going to have to walk farther to get to the door, it's probably about six or seven feet. But, he can do it. It's in God's hands.

Wait for the LORD;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the LORD.
Psalm 27:14

God bless

I don't do goofy things. We are making fun of you and dad and that is why we are smiling.

Decorating the room and always making you smile........ that's exactly what I think of when I think of Angel. You rock!
End of July Will.......... I'm praying for that!
Love to all.... Suzy Harper
