July 29, 2008 Tuesday 1:40 am

It was a good Monday. No dialysis so Will got up and walked two times, both time to the double doors which is about 92 steps. That's so much farther than he has been able to get. The occupational therapist, Lindsay, had Will stand at the sink and brush his teeth. He did all right with that. He was tired-isn't it amazing the things we take for granted. We don't have trouble brushing our teeth several times a day and when Will does it-the task makes the blog. But it is big news, anything that is more like his normal days is so good for him. He did 10 hours off the vent today also. So it was a good day.

Dialysis day is today. We will see what the day brings.

I'm not going to write a book today. I hear the applause clear up here.

God bless

Will that is all great news and I'm sure the girls are glad your teeth are clean! Hold them back Terri!!! lol
Our family has another little bump in the road, please keep Martin's mom (Missy) in your prayers. She goes into surgery tomorrow 6 a.m. The doctors are putting a pace-maker in. She has not been able to sleep for a long time and they said it's because her body keeps waking her up because it thinks her heart is going to stop. Her pulse has not gone above 47 for a long time. Also her blood pressure has been extremely (scary) low. So please keep her and the family in your prayers.
I'll let you know how things go tomorrow.
Great job Will!
XOXO

Hey Will, Teri and family,
It sounds like prayers are being answered all over the place. Terri, I wish I had known that you were at the school! I would have ran over and gave you a hug! :)
You are an amazing family. I am lucky to know you and to have had the chance to read this inspirational blog. You have all made a difference in my life. Love to you all!
