Jan. 7, 2009 Wednesday

What a long, long day. After I got back from a couple hours at school, Tom had Will almost all ready to get going to dialysis. We were worried about the roads but they were all good. We got him into the facility, Idaho Dialysis Center, and Will was so sick. Even though we gave him something for motion sickness it didn't help much. This was a lot of moving from somebody that hasn't been moving much in the last 10 1/2 months. The ride was almost too much for him. But it had good results. They were able to get 10 pounds of fluid off from him. He's breathing better and his itching is gone. He does have to monitor what fluids he takes in, they have limited him to 1 cup. That's not even enough to take his pills. I don't know how Will's going to handle that.

We met the people there and talked to the doctor. We will meet with the big kidney doctor on Thursday. Will will go in on Tues., Thurs., and Saturday and if another day is needed they will let us know. Tom will take him on Tues and Thurs and then I will take him on Saturday. I won't be able to take too much more time off, I think I'm pushing my limit now. But, to be honest, I have been so blessed to work for a place that has let me take off the time that I need to be with Will. Bliss School District is the best!

The place is going to start helping us with Will's diet. We are kind of lost there and Will is really starting to eat now. We need to know what not to give him and what would be good for him. Eventually he wants off the feeding tube. We talked with the people there and they wanted to know all about Will and his history. I wanted to tell them just to pull up Will's blog and start reading but they probably don't have that much time.

Since Will wasn't feeling well today at all, he didn't want me to take any pictures. I'm sorry but I tried. So tomorrow I will take some. He is going to have the home health nurse and the physical therapist here working things out. Coach wants to come over when the PT comes so he can help Will with that. He's going to get out his whistle and everything (just kidding). He will be feeling so much better after dialysis and a good night sleep.
