Tom mainly came home to put up the hay that was cut this week. This is Tom with his hay crew. They are just starting out. The kids are really excited because they get to drive the truck in the field. Riley and Hayley are the best workers you could ask for. THEN:
This is what Tom looked like after they got all the hay stacked. Big change huh? Riley still looks happy because he got to ride inside the truck. The White family helped Tom and they got it all stacked before the rain came. What good, good friends we have been blessed with. Thanks Whites.
Well, today is our five month anniversary for Will's new lungs. I don't know if we say happy anniversary or has it been that long???? I really thought it was much longer than five months. Please remember the donors family in your prayers tonight as I do every night. Thanks
Today they did dialysis and they took off 4.5 liters. That's just about 10 pounds of fluid. It helped but not enough so they will take off some more either Wednesday or Thurs. He still is very puffy. This will definitely help his breathing. So today should be a better day. Tuesday he slept. I think he slept almost 30 hours with just a few minutes waking up. I did talk him into standing but it just lasted for two minutes. He just couldn't do it. But today we will see a huge difference I hope
Will's blood cultures are starting to grow something so they gave him a bolus (new word here) of antibiotics. We should know this morning what is growing and how to treat it.
A bolus is another word for a big amount to start with. A lot of times they give a bolus of antibiotics and then level off with a smaller amount. Sometimes they do a bolus of pain meds just to get on top of the pain and then level off. So there's another medical term all you bloggers just learned. Don't forget there will be a test at the end of the hospital stay. (just kidding coach). They did a few other tests also so they all should be back this morning, but remember kids, this is hospital time so maybe by midnight tomorrow night I will have answers-hee hee.
So please pray that what ever is growing won't be too serious. Thank you
