Monday July 21, 2008 1:40 am

Around Salt Lake City they get really excited about the "days of 47". I guess it's a three or four day event. They have rodeos, parades, and even fireworks. That will be all this week the nurses told me. So I will have to try to experience some of this.

Will did some good walking today. He walked 34 steps in the morning and then more than doubled that in the afternoon. It took so much out of him, I can't wait until he's able to get around like the good old days. He just has to work to get his muscles and nerves back to where they were. He did get to listen to the Mets game on the xm radio. He enjoys that satellite radio so much. That was a good investment and we want to thank Coach again for that.

We are slowly getting to know the nurses here. They seem to be very nice and have fun personalities. It's still not anything like our "home" on ICU. We miss those people a lot. I told Will that we don't have too much more time until the end of the month--his goal for getting out of the hospital. We better get a move on. He doesn't have dialysis until Tuesday so tomorrow will be another good "movement" day.

God bless

That all sounds great! Good walking Will... hope you can double it tomorrow. Go Will Go!
Just wanted you to know we are thinking about you all! Starting to get prepared for kindergarten Terri. We start in less than a month... and Jesalyn can't wait!
Trying to get some summer projects done before we get into the swing of things. Of course Martin is working because they just built a brand new building on campus, which they are moving everyone but pre-K and kindergarten into. Really like our new high school we got in Hagerman. His elementary school is the oldest in our area, so it will be interesting to see what they do with the building in the future.
Love ya,
