Monday June 23, 2008 3:40 am

I don't know if I told everyone but my computers broken. I think I used it too much. Anyway it's in the shop getting fixed so I am using Will's the last few days. I haven't been able to upload any pictures lately but I hope I have mine back soon.

Will had to get another pic line put into his arm but before they do that they had to run another Doppler. That's where they check for blood clots because of his history of clots. They didn't find any new ones (the one in his neck is still there) so they were able to put another line in. The other one they have been using finally quit on us. Everything went well with that. But he was supposed to have a day off from stuff and instead it got kind of busy.

Will did start the day sitting in the chair for a couple of hours. Then he stood a couple of times and did a couple of t-trials. He still has a lot of trouble breathing because of the pneumonia so he's only been able to do about 1 1/2 hours each time. Still that's so good compared to a week ago. He is going to start back on the dialysis today for the next three days and then they will reevaluate things. He is supposed to have a bronch also sometime today. They want to see how things are going with the pneumonia. So another busy day scheduled for Will.

I see such a good improvement with him. Will's able to move so much easier and he just looks better. Angel should be coming up this week to help us out so that will be so good for Will (and us too). She will stay until Aaron comes down on Friday and then we will celebrate Tom's birthday. He turns 40 on Friday :) We are going to decorate his room for Fourth of July. I will post pictures.

God bless

Tom, you don't look a day over 30. I wouldn't have even guessed that you were turning 40. You must have started at Idaho Power as a baby to be able to retire. Happy Birthday on Friday.

Keep up the good work Will. Randy will be there to make you "run lines" at the end of the week.
And just so you know, my luck has changed - I was really cheering for the Celtics this time.

Dear Will,

You don't know me and I just found your blog today. I blame you and your mom for my lack of productivity at work today--I couldn't stop reading your story! :)

Your journey has been harder than most. I am in awe of your ability to keep on keepin' on. I just can't help but believe that this will only make you a more powerful force in the world when you are out of the hospital and living your life. You have inspired me greatly--I thought I was tough but I question that now!

I send you all my best. I will keep checking in. Thank you for letting the world watch your strength unfold.

34, CF, 2 double lung transplants
