We are still in Idaho, aren't we? Nothing was said today, and nobody seems to know what or when anything is going to happen. I'm thinking that since this is the weekend coming up that we probably won't be going anywhere until Monday. So we wait. I really am going to enjoy having everybody from the SLC hospital getting to see Will. He has come so far. I know that they were a big part of it and they need to see how well he's doing.
He walked a few times around the unit today. Then he had some time listening to books on tape. Then just out of the blue the doctor decided to down size his trach this afternoon. Tom said that everything went well and Will has had no problem breathing. He has been sleeping most of the evening.
Tomorrow he will have dialysis again but I will be going up there in the morning. The reason I'm not going to be in school was that I had to get a sub when I thought I would be going on Wednesday. He's a real good sub and I didn't want to loose him by putting him off day by day so I told him by Thursday I will be gone. I went in this morning and worked and showed him how things were done. I got him all set set up and then I said goodbye to my kids. I won't see them again until after Christmas when school is back on I think that's is the fifth of Jan. It made me real sad because those kids are something else. I love them all. I am so lucky that I work in such a great place. Everybody is just so wonderful to try to help me and my boss is great about giving me the time off. (I would say that even if he wasn't going to read this,really).
So I spent the afternoon trying to unpack some boxes that I haven't been able to get done since moving back from Salt Lake. I'm getting Will's room all ready for when he gets to come home. What a great day that will be!!! Maybe tomorrow we will hear something. I will go up to Boise in the morning and then Tom will come home and have an extra day with his horse, his daughter and Aaron, and with his brothers (probably in that order).
Well I hope everybody is getting into the spirit of Christmas. Isn't it a wonderful time of year???
Happy, happy birthday, Rustin.
