June 30, 2008 Monday 12:27 am

This was sent to me from a CF friend. If you live around Salt Lake City, please come out to this fund-raiser. It sounds like it would be a blast. I hope we can make it over there also.

Hey Everyone!
Come down to Famous Dave’s in West Jordan to support The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Channel 2 will be holding their survivor casting auditions and ribs are only a dollar from noon to 4 p.m. All proceeds go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation so come down get some grub and watch the wacky auditions. Also, watch channel 2 from 6 to 8 a.m. where Matt Meese will be the spokesperson for CF!
Date: July 3rd 2008 (Next Thursday) Time: Noon to 4 p.m. Location: 7273 S. Plaza Center

The last day of June already. Wow that went very fast. Angel and Aaron left this afternoon but we had such a good visit and it was one of the few times that they saw a huge improvement with Will. So it was a good time. We have had such a good response from the pictures that we put up. Thank you for all the positive feedback, I let Will know how many people were impressed and happy with the way he looked. I am going to try to keep taking them so you will be seeing him improve as we do.

Today he will do another t-trial or two. Then he will have dialysis and they plan to get another 4 liters off. His xray does show a little improvement but still quite a bit of fluid around his lungs so hopefully that is where the dialysis will start pulling the fluids off from. He got up and walked again in the hall.

Will's cousin, Christi, is up here for a few days. She's a teacher so she just got out of school and then she got a summer job but she told them she needed a few days before she started so she can come up and see her cousin. I wish her two sons could have come up also but they won't let kids into the ICU. They did a lot of crossword puzzles today while I went home to sleep. I think they cheated but they won't admit it. When Will and I try to do some, we get about four or five answers and that's all.

The days are getting better and we know what a blessing it is so we take nothing for granted. We thank God for what we have. Just a reminder, please keep praying for Richard, our good friend and neighbor while he and his wife, Kim, are in Houston at the cancer center there. I will let everyone know how it goes.
Our God is awesome and he listens to every prayer.

God bless

Good morning Harbisons, how ya all doing?(Texan talk) I am so glad to here that Kristi is there with you all. It is so great to here the wonderful progess. MD Anderson is a little different than the Gooding Hospital. Our first appointment is at 8:30 a.m and our last appoint. is a 7:30 tonight. Richard has bone scan, blood work, mri, mri of brain, ct scan and chest exay for today. We feel great about everything and look forward to finding out more hopefully soon. You all know all about being still and waiting. :)

I hope you all have a wonderful day. Pray for Randy as I know he will be having withdraws with me out of town. Miss you all. Talk to you very soon.

Good morning Harbisons and Whites!
Randy will definately have withdrawals without seeing or talking to you Kim. I guess he'll just have to settle for me (this may be a long week....) You guys are in our thoughts and prayers right along with the Harbisons.

Will, you'll get a kick out this. Randy said he thought he was the 50,000th person on the blog, but wondered what the winner got. He thought the prize should be a day with Tom in Wendover, but I told him the real prize is an evening out with Terri (dinner, movie, shopping....) He said he didn't want to take a chance of getting the "Terri prize", so he wouldn't say anything. I really don't think he was the 50,000th hit anyway. Sounds like things are rolling pretty good - we'll be down soon again. Take care. Love, Donna

Will, I'm sorry certain people are using YOUR blog for themselves and not you !!!! I will talk to my lawyer about the matter and let you know what he said when I see you on Friday. Jason is coming with me in a couple of weeks.This would be a good week for you to come home since Kim is gone.
I hope you have a great week.

Hi Will,
I haven't checked the blog lately but when I got home tonight I gave it a quick look and couldn't believe my eyes. The pictures your Mom has on the blog were amazing! We're so happy that things our going well.
Just got back from a fishing trip at a secret little reservoir on the Oregon - Nevada line. Great trip can't wait for when you can come with me. Had a problem on the way back to Reno. Just outside Lovelock the engine on my Suburban blew up. We had to towed to Reno. Pretty expensive Trip!!! Maybe it's time for a Ford!!!
Hope to see you soon.
I'll be up to see you soon
