Friday, Nov. 21, 2008

Now when 8 o'clock a.m. rolls around on Friday, he will have been off the vent 3 days. We used to measure it by hours, now it's being measured by days. He had a great day with no sign of the fever coming back. He walked around the unit twice in the morning and once more with Dad in the afternoon. He was sitting up in the chair when he fell asleep. He's needing more sleep lately but that's because of the effort he's putting forth. Will's making it look easy, but we know it's not.

Christi and her boys came over tonight after school and Will enjoyed hearing about what they have been doing. A good friend, Jeff Jester came up to see Will and Darwin Pugmire popped up for a minute. Darwin and Tom started working with Idaho Power on the same day so we have known him a long time.

We are expecting some special, special visitors on Saturday and I will have pictures for sure. (this is what the people in the writer's business call a "tease" to keep you reading.) Grandma and Grandpa Atwood came up to say good-bye to Will because they will be leaving for a few weeks to go see our family in Reno. They will be celebrating Thanksgiving there and going to watch the BSU/Nevada game this weekend.

My sister, niece, and great-nephew came up from California last night and I got to run over to my mom's house after school to visit. It's been almost two years since I have seen her. They will be coming over to Boise on Sunday to visit with Will and me. This will be a great weekend for Will, but then, it's been a great, great, week, hasn't it? I'm heading back up there right after school.

God bless

Will, I know Dr. Tom takes very good care of you and you only get fevers when your Mother is there but I worry about Dr. Tom when he gets around Jester and Darwin. When those three get together noting good usually happens.
Great job with your exercising this week. It is great you are off the vent but I'm not surprised by it since you told me Tuesday you were going off of it. I have known you long enough to realize when you say you are going to do something you do it.
I hope you have a good weekend and I'll see you Tuesday.
Be careful when those "special visitors" show up on Saturday. You can't trust all of them.
KIm's season is almost over and then you will be able to come home and not have to worry about her bothering you all the time with coaching questions.
Also I have a surprise for your Mother that I will run by tou next week.
