SAT. Oct. 18, 2008 12:10 am


Grandma and Grandpa Atwood came up to watch the game (BSU) with Will while we went to dinner at Aaron's mom's house. And what a dinner!!! We had pork, steak and shrimp. Aaron and I made a pig out of ourselves with that shrimp. Linda, Aaron's mom, and Steve, great step-dad, made us feel so welcome and they really put on a dinner. We had a very good time with Aaron's family.

What perfectly beautiful weather we are having. These are my favorite types of days.

For those of you who don't watch as much ESPN as W do, BSU beat Hawaii. Way to go!

I forgot to put this cute picture on the blog, This is the funny nurse that dances for Will and with Will. I don't think she will make him dance the macarana (sp?) again any time soon though. Candace is in the background watching everything they do to Uncle Will.

Will had a great visit with his Uncle Jack, Tom's brother and Aunt Carol a couple of days ago. They haven't seen him in over a year and they are very close to Will. They use to take care of Will and all his treatments when he was little and we needed some help with those things. Jack had so much trouble with those gloves he had to wear. He never got them on right so I wanted to take his picture with the dumb gloves because it was all the gloves fault, don't ya know.

Will's three days of dialysis is over. They got over 26.4 pounds of fluid off from his body. He still isn't breathing too well so they will take some more tests today and see what's what. They called Dr. Cahill today and let her in on what's happening so she will get back to this dr. soon. We will keep watching everything and giving them our "input" (that's what I like to call it-it sounds so much better than "buttin' in") I will keep you posted. Please say prayers for him, they were talking that maybe it might be rejection. There are things that can be done right away if that is what we are dealing with. We will see. They might have to do a bronch early next week to tell if that's what is happening. Right now, we just don't know much. His blood sugars were over 400 tonight so they will turn off the tube feeds for awhile.

I will let you know when we know. Thanks for the prayers. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

The shortest distance between a problem and a solution is the distance between your knees and the floor. Amen!!!

God bless

Hi Harbison family. It's Summer from IMCU. It's so nice to hear about Will's progress. It is so strange to come to work (when I actually do come to work, right?!) and not see Will's name on the patient list. Tell Will that I've been watching some of the baseball news. Phillies made it to the playoffs for superbowl or whatever they call the baseball one. Anyway, good luck with everything and I'm very impressed that you were up in a chair by 7AM!!! Do you even remember the last time you were up at that time of day?
