I don't have any pictures today but I hope everyone enjoyed the videos from yesterday.
Will has had a very busy day. He had xrays downstairs on his lungs. Then Dr. Cahill decided to do a bronch. This last week, Will has started bleeding out of his trach again. Dr. Cahill wanted to make sure there's not something real bad happening. She was very pleased with what she found down there. So that shows her that there is probably fluid surrounding the lungs again. Tomorrow they will do dialysis and take a couple of liters of fluid off and see if that will make breathing easier again. they haven't taken fluid off all this week.
Coach and Donna came down for their weekly visits and they were in the room for the bronch. They got to see the inside Will's lungs. They were feeling like I did the first time I got to watch-just amazed what we were looking at. Will even got a few foot rubs from Donna. I am sure glad we get company here so we don't have to do all the foot rubs.
Before all this, Will did walk today and his aunts got to go with him. (They went back to Idaho after that) He walked 70 steps, I know that this isn't as far as he has been doing but he hasn't walked very far for a couple of days. But because of the bronch he didn't get to walk the second time until much later in evening. Coach wanted to stay to see him walk but with all the happy juice that they give Will during the bronch Will slept until 9:30 tonight. So tomorrow we should see Will's breathing get easier and then maybe he can stay off the vent for a long time. Then he will walk farther too, right?
Tomorrow Will's grandma, my mom, is coming up for a visit. I think she is bringing me some home-cooked food. I'm so excited (to see my mom and yes, for the food too). She will stay a few days with us. Tanya, our CF friend that is awaiting a transplant, went home from the hospital and I pray that she gets to stay home longer than a few weeks. The air is so bad here right now from the California fires. I also pray that she gets her new lungs soon. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
