Tuesday, Feb. 24, 2009


Now, if any of you want to take a trip back in time, go back to this time last year on this blog and see how Will started this whole journey. You have to keep going all the way down the page until the bottom and then hit "older posts." Last year at this time we were sitting in a large waiting room with family and friends and we were so excited about Will's new lungs. So today I went back and read some of the entries from that time. I couldn't quite get through them but I will someday soon. We hope to have a first year anniversary party sometime this spring, like a big open house, and everybody's invited. What a fun time that will be.

Now on a sadder not, I am praying tonight very hard (and I ask you to say a prayer also) because this is the first year anniversary of the death of some one's loved one whose special gift of life saved Will's. It has to be so hard on that family and my heart goes out to them. I hope someday to be able to put into words all the special feelings we have for this family. We were told that we have to wait for a year before we can send the donor's family a letter. The transplant team then gives it to them. Then it is up to the family if they want any contact at all. I hope someday (not now though) that they will want to meet Will.

Will has gotten sick this afternoon and we don't know what's going on. We will see if it gets better after dialysis tomorrow or we'll call the doctor to see what's what.

My Uncle Bill is having surgery Tuesday. So we need prayers for him, please.

All in all, a wonderful day to celebrate Will's life. God made a great person when he designed Will. Thank you God for allowing us to be part of this special life.

GOD BLESS and again thank you, thank you, and thank you for staying with us through all this.
