It is so good being up here with Will this weekend. First he took a walk and walked clear down the hall with only two stops. then he had his dialysis (remember, Will gets dialysis four times a week now). They wanted to take off a couple of liters but he got .8 liter off and his blood pressure went down to 68/29. That's really, really low if you don't know that already. So then they had to put the fluids back on. But at least they got the toxins out of his body. That's good and makes him feel better. Tomorrow he might walk even farther. He sat in a chair for an hour. He did stay off his vent for about 8 hours. This was the first time he felt like staying off his vent during dialysis. Making progress here.
My Aunt Gloria sent up some fresh peaches and plums to the nurses to thank them for taking such good care of her nephew. They loved them and already the bucket is gone. We are making good brownie points though. I should have brought up some Hagerman watermelons for everyone. Then we really would be the best patient and family this unit has seen :)
We visited most of the day and then listened to the news about the hurricane ready to slam in New Orleans again. We need to focus our prayers for those poor people that are uprooted from their homes again. (don't you just wonder why people live there????) I hope God keeps them safe and gets them home soon. You can tell Will was getting lonely because he even asked me to tell him about my class. So if any of you out there have some news, send it on this way and I can relay it to Will. I should have a few pictures of Grandpa Tom taking Candace to her first rodeo. He's in seventh heaven.
Enjoy your Sunday and God bless
