It's the middle of summer already. Wow! I know the weather is getting so hot everywhere. I hope all our readers are finding a way to stay cool. I know our church family are going camping this weekend for the yearly church camp out. With gas as high as it is, I hope people get to go. Next year we will be going with them.

Will still had a tough day. For some reason the feeding tube is still not working. The head dr. from GI (stands for gastric-intestinal, I think) will come up and fix it tomorrow some time, probably after the rest of his cases so it will be in the late afternoon. Will does have dialysis but we never know when they take him. There is no schedule.

Will did take a short walk this morning about 9:00. I know, you are probably all saying that can't be Will because he doesn't do anything before 11:00 am. He just wanted to get it done early which was a good thing because for the rest of the day he's been asleep. He didn't even wake up when his cousin, Danny, came to see him. I think all of this is just from lack of nutrition and once we get that all fixed things will be up and running again. He stayed off the vent about 6 hours today. Will's still trying to do as much as he can. He's amazing.

The young man, Moreno, is back down to this floor again, remember last week he had a set back and had to go back to ICU. He's looking so much better and I want to thank you so much for the prayers you have been saying for him. He's got such a great smile. He's got a trach in also so I can't talk to him but he smiles all the time. Someday I would like to ask him if I could take his picture so I can put it up on the blog so you all can put a face to your prayers. I think Will has the best blog readers in the whole world. Anytime we need prayers, we get 'em, even for people we don't know. We thank God for all of you.

God bless
