New Year's Eve Dec. 31, 2008

Will's new tunnel catheter is in place. The one hour surgery took a little over 3 hours. Made this mom a little nervous but I should know better. Will just likes to make those drs. work for their money. They were able to "unclog" two of the three veins that they were wanting to unclog. So they put the catheter in and then they used it right away for dialysis. Even though Will had dialysis yesterday they did it again today so they have him as "dry" for surgery as they can get him.

Tomorrow morning at 7:30 (hospital time) they will take him down to OR and put in a graft. The doctors were being a little pessimistic about this so Will needs prayers for this graft to take. It will take between two and four hours and then he will be back in his room. This should be the last procedure before the trach comes out.

Today is my sister's birthday and I want to wish Mickey the best birthday ever. I wish we were closer so I could have made her a cake. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SIS. Love you lots.

For all of you that are going to be out New Years Eve, have a lot of fun and be careful. There's crazy people out there. I will pray that God will protect all of you. Our church is having a great time planned for New Years and I hope everyone can stop by and check it out.

God bless

Happy New Year Will and Family!
This is going to be Will's Year! I can feel it! You "WILL" continue to inspire and teach people like me that you don't even know, more than you could ever imagine. Your mother's, (and family and friends), faith and trust in God has brought me to my knees in prayer, for the first time in a long time. I have always believed and considered myself a Christian, but I have become a much better person and Christian since I came aross your blog. Wow, I could go on for hours, but I have to make myself stop. Thank you for allowing your story to be told to perfect strangers, and changing our lives for the better!
PS: Will's Momma,excuse any typos and such, I hope to see some spelling and comma errors from you soon, even though you are a teacher.
Your Friend,
