Tuesday night

Tuesday night and I just wanted to let everyone know that we are doing okay. We really, really appreciate all the comments and the emails that have been sent to me. I have read them to Will, so he does receive them. He has been really touched by them and the love that is shown.

Just wanted to let you know that Tom and I have been going through the training and we are doing well at it. I think we get gold stars or something. We still have a long way to go, but it isn't as scary as we thought. My boss is amazing to let me off three days a week to go in to training. Not many places would be able to do that. How extremely lucky I am. Kevin, you're the best.

Dr. Cahill called Will when we were on the way home last night from the training. She talked to me for a while and then to Will. It was very touching and everyone needs to know what a special lady (and doctor) she is. She just wanted to reaffirm that she wasn't giving up on Will or anything like it. She feels the home dialysis is going to be so good for Will because it will get more of the fluid off, give him the freedom to go places and do things he wants to do. It should also make him feel better with less cramping--so Will's excited about that.

Again, thanks for all the kind words and the love everyone has shown. We will keep you updated. Life is good because our God is good.

Terri, you and Tom need more than a gold star they should make a platnum star or something. You both are so amazing no wonder Will has the strenght and determination that he does.
Keep up the great work and Will you have written your own book on how to do a transplant and I know you will have a new chapter to write on this new adventure of your life. I love you Will, keep up your great spirit and keep spoiling that sweet niece of yours.

Dixie and James
