Jan. 21, 2009 Wednesday

Will did his dialysis and then he came home not feeling well. After the long weekend without dialysis, he doesn't seem to feel well even after dialysis. But tomorrow he will be so much better. We are still in a quandary (yes, a fourth grade teacher can know some big words) about Will's diet and diabetes care. We have an appt. next Monday with a diabetes counselor and hopefully we can get it all worked out.

We have a new friend that comments on our blog, Marlene from North Carolina. She has touched our family with her words of support even though she has never met us. And as she has pointed out, I have been remiss in my "job" to encourage people to keep fighting to find a cure for CF. Any time, you can contact the CF office in your state by looking online. They can always use help and just getting the word out about the Cystic Fibrosis is great progress. I will look up some useful sites and post them on here real soon.

He still says what a great weekend it was for him to see everyone. I wrapped some gifts and put them under our Christmas tree. We just need to get Will a little stronger so he can really enjoy our celebration, although we did celebrate our savior's birthday on the 25th. For some strange reason, people in my house still want to exchange gifts, and I'm all for that too.

Can't let another teaching moment go by. My class invited our whole school 1st through 6th into our class to watch the oath of office. I wanted to get a picture but of course I forgot. Those kids were really into the proceedings. I loved watching their faces as they watched a very historical moment. I hope you all were able to watch this important event.

I pray for our new leader, President Obama, to lead this country towards peace and a new awakening of morality that has been missing for a while. Lord guide him in Your ways and protect him as he serves his country. Amen

God bless all of Will's readers and God bless the United States of America
(I know, a little corny, but appropriate)

I just came across your blog through a "google alert". I pray that Will's transplant comes through. I am a CF mom--my daughter Emily is 8 and was diagnosed at the age of four. One way you could get your school involved would be to do Curefinders--you can get more info about it through your local CFF office. I am a school principal and ironically enough my assistant principal has a daughter with CF too. A few parents organized Curefinders at our school and raised $4,000 in one week!

Will, U. Tom, Angel, Aaron, & A. Terry,
It was so nice to see all of you in one place finally back at your own home. What an amazing journey this has been. I am so inspired by the strength and faith of Will and all of you. When I heard Will's voice again it made me feel a way that I just am not able to put into words. It has been so long since I have heard Will's voice. My drive back to Pocatello was full of positive and encouraging thoughts for a blessed new year. Thank you for all of your love. Brenda and Lance

You dont know me but I have followed your blog. What a wonderful family. You never discuss your religion but what a true testament of our Savior. Will looks better and better every day its heartwarming. We had a family member very very sick at one time and I do believe he hears and answers our prayers. Even if its not meant to be.Take care and keep the posts comming. I enjoy reading them
