We have a new president and we should all pray for him and the United State of America.

Enough of politics, Will is doing so good today. He stayed in the chair for about six hours, he stayed off the vent about 10 hours. What fabulous numbers that is. Coach came up and visited with Will and they had a great time. Will went down to the therapy room with Coach, Grandpa and Grandma, and Tom and rode the stationary bike for five minutes. It took a lot out of him but he has made such good progress in just a day or two. I can't wait to see him tomorrow. Even though tomorrow is dialysis is tomorrow, I expect to see a different guy than I left on Sunday. I am going up about 2:30 so I can be there for a care meeting and discuss what's going to be happening with Will. I will stay for a while for a good visit and then head back. It is so wonderful to have him so close.

I went to vote after school and then I went to my old church for their election day dinner that the Methodist church holds every election day. I think half the town was there and I haven't been able to see very many people since I started living back in Idaho again. It was so fantastic to see everyone. Many, many people told me that every morning they read the blog and then pray for Will. It just boggles my mind how much love surrounds Will (and Will's family) and how many people know, without a doubt, that the reason Will is still here and fighting is because of that love and prayers and by the grace of our almighty God. God put these wonderful people in Will's life to be able to help strengthen him and us and we will never be able to say thank you enough.

God bless

Will, thanks for the great visit yesterday. The progress you are making is amazing. It was fun discussing Kim and her coaching.
Like I said in Salt Lake I see a pattern here with your Mother. When Dr. Tom is in charge things move along very well and then on weekends you seem to fall back a little. Can't anyone else see the problem here ? It seems to be worse when Donna and Kim show up. I hope Dr. Tom will put his foot down and stop this problem these women seem to be causing. I notice when Grandma and Grandpa are there you do very well.
I just thought I would throw that observation out there.
Thanks again for the enjoyable afternoon.Keep working hard. I'll see you soon. (if I survive Ms. Gregg, Ms. Wallace & Mrs. Fobes)

Will, I am so glad you had a great day. Walking that hall way was a great achievement. Keep up the great work. I will make sure and bring my coaches wistle next time I come and we will do minute drills. As for coach, we all know he wants Donna and I to stay away from Will so he can have us all to himself!

See you very soon, thanks for sharing your mother. I love have her around again!

Will keep up the great work, you are such an inspiration to the world!
