August 1, 2008 Friday 12:45 am


The end of the week and the end of the month. Will had an okay day today. He had dialysis this morning after his walk. They were only able to take off 1 1/2 liters because his blood pressure went too low. They really wanted to take off about 4 liters again. Maybe Saturday.
While they were doing that Brent Clark and Ryan Pharris came up to visit. That really was good times for Will. It just helps so much when he gets to visit about basketball and stuff like that. I'm sure there's deep discussions about world problems too. Yea, right.

I am trying to keep our blog from getting too boring (Kim didn't say anything this time) so I'm mixing it up. Anyway there's a lot of different ways to do it so I thought I would try some. Blue is good. I just don't know how to get that big empty space at the top to fill in with something. Anyone have any suggestions???

Coach is coming today with Ty Jones. They will spend a few hours visiting. Angel and Aaron came up to visit also and they will stay until Saturday night. They have Candace, Aaron's daughter, and Carson, our friend who is 4 years old. Will finally got to meet Candace, and they threw a ball around the room. All of them had a good time until they started squealing so we had to put a stop to it. I told Will to knock it off. (Just kidding, Will still can't talk because of the trach)
Tom is taking them to the zoo today and then I will take them to the aquarium tomorrow. They have sharks there. I'm excited. No, really, I am. So it's like a little mini vacation for Tom and I also. Those two little ones will be fun to take to these places. Fun days of summer. It's supposed to be around 100 degrees for the next two days. Nice and toasty.

There is 12 CFers in the hospital right now. That's way over the average. It's because of the bad air quality. Tanya is back in and everyone is praying for her to get her new lungs. She's a cutie for sure. Tom takes her a candy bar all the time. I don't get down there enough but she's sleeping when I do. Tanya, if you are reading this, hang in there and know we are praying for you.

I will have pictures today or tomorrow. I thank God for all of you.
God bless.

Hey guys! Sorry it has taken me sooooo long to write. They blocked most of the internet at work for awhile so I couldn't check the blog. But, now it's back. Terri, it was so wonderful seeing you for the first time in almost a year. I have NEVER gone that long without seeing my second mom. I won't let it happen again! Will - I know my dad looks forward to seeing you every week and I think he might enjoy it more than you. Maybe it's because he gets time away from my mom. :) Anyway, I will be coming down with him in a couple weeks. Can't wait to see ya! You're all in my prayers. I love you guys!

I think it is funny that you think Uncle Tom is taking the candy bars to Tanya. After all these years, are you really still that gullible?

Hey Harbison and Beutler Family,
Never a dull moment~ please keep our family, especially Martin's mom in your prayers. She had an MRI before her pace-maker and found out today that it showed something. Her doctor doesn't get back until Monday, so we don't know much right now.
Love you all lots and glad you are getting a fun summer weekend! Really excited that Will got to see Candace. She is such a cutie!!!!
