Sunday May 31, 2009

This was my last week for the school year. So the summer is upon us. YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Will has been waiting patiently because I told him he had to wait to go out on the boat. Thanks Will. But we do have to get through this next week in Salt Lake. Doctor week dontcha know.
Will has to go to the vascular surgeon on Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. to have a procedure done. It's the one he has had once before. The dr. goes through the vein in the groin and up towards the heart. If this vein isn't wide enough he will put in another balloon (he did one before) and blow the balloon up (in the vein, not the heart). I'm sure the description I gave is as close to the textbook as you can get (NOT).
Then after that, Will will go to dialysis somewhere. They haven't set that up yet. I know, time's running out but you know how doctors work, especially if you have been following this blog for a while. After that, we plan to go to the hotel and rest. I'm sure Will will need that by then. Danny and AnnMarie will be visiting sometime that night.
Wednesday he has to go in the morning for his PFT (his breathing test to see how good his lungs are working)., then go for some blood work and x-rays and finally he goes to see the big guns-the whole transplant team including Dr. Cahill. Then we know he will be tired, so we are going to stay one more night in SLC.
We have an appt. for dialysis at 6:30 in the morning. I'm not sure that we will get Will there on time. I think I will just roll him out of bed and into the car. He sleeps most of the time in dialysis anyway. Then we will go out and visit Danny and AnnMarie. It should be a good day after that. We should be home by Thursday night some time.
I hope I will have some pictures of some of our friends to put on the blog. We plan to take some of the time that we will have waiting for Will and visit our buddies in the hospital. Please pray for Will's tests and his procedure. We hope that maybe we can start visiting about Will's kidney transplant. That we really need prayers for also.
We will let you know how his time in SLC goes as soon as we get home. If anything goes on before that, we will let you all know.
Hope that all of you are planning a great summer vacation. Our vacation is going to be spent at home (remember it's been a long time since we have had time to just "be" and we live in the most wonderful valley in the world. We will have fun.
