ALL WE CAN SAY IS WOW
Will did sooooooo good today. Thank you, God. He walked all around the nurses' desk. That might be his longest walk yet!!!! They have him sitting up most the day and he was off the vent for almost-----drum roll, please--------12 hours. He didn't not have any more fever after I left and he's breathing easier. The doctors and the kidney doctor got together and decided that he might be needing more dialysis than he's getting now. So they did dialysis today, even though they did it yesterday also. They took 4 liters of fluid off, yesterday it was 3 liters. Then they will do more tomorrow and either Saturday or Sunday. He was turning in some rather high numbers on his kidney numbers so they are trying to keep them down. That could be what's turning him around. After all this time you would think that we would be use to Will doing things all messed up.
So I can't wait to get up there for this weekend. I will have Will take me out dancing one night. (That's what I told him on the phone tonight). He said even if he was feeling better he wouldn't do that. Kids can be so cruel (I think he's been around Coach too long). This will be a great weekend even without the dancing. Tom will come home and check on his horse. He was so excited about Will this morning doing all that walking. It was good to hear Tom's voice so upbeat.
Angel and Aaron were up visiting Will tonight. Tom went back to my dad's early to try to catch up on some sleep he missed last night. Brenda (Coach's sister and a good friend of the family) finally got to come up and see Will this morning. I know Will was looking forward to it a lot. She's just one of those people that you feel good just being around.
So here comes the weekend! I hope the snow stays away. I pray that Will continues his fantastic progress. I hope the friends from the U of U are reading this and know that he's doing better. I can't believe how many people read this blog.
Thanks for all the prayers and God bless
