I'm back in Hagerman tonight. Tom is now with Will. It was really strange because I forgot that Tom hadn't seen the new place yet. He's seen pictures of it but he never got to visit it until today so I took him on a tour. I think he's very impressed with it as I am. I am so lucky that I got to spend the last four days with him. It really helped to be able to get everything settled and it made the transition so much smoother. My boss is great-thanks, Kevin.
Angel and Aaron brought up Candace today again. It was so cute. Anytime I was there to do something with Will at his bedside-so was Candace. She wanted to know everything that anybody was doing to her Uncle Will. They made little pumpkins and put them in Will's window and colored him a picture. Aaron tried to watch football with Will but he just slept through it (Will, not Aaron).
It was another busy time in Will's room today. He did get off the vent for 4 1/2 hours today but it is having a little more trouble breathing so they had to give him more 02. He might have a plug that he needs to work up. His vomiting has lessened and that's good. He tried to sit in a chair this afternoon but he just couldn't breathe too well. So after a couple minutes he went back to the bed. Tomorrow will be better. He will have dialysis in the morning. Maybe that will take some of his fluid off his lungs and it will help him breathe easier.
I have some wonderful, fantastic news!!!!! Tanya, our CF buddy who had the transplant three weeks ago, will be going home tomorrow. She is just so excited, and if you want to see some of her pictures and read her blog, just click on the blog connection on the right of Will's home page. It will take you there. She is so, so happy. We are very excited for her. All of our prayers have been answered and I just know that she is not going to have any trouble with her two new lungs.
