Will made it through a pretty uneventful night.  They've got almost all of his numbers right where they want them.  His heart rate has gone down, which is comforting to me because it just makes it seem like he is more relaxed.  His sats are in the lower normal range, and his blood pressure is fine.  His glucose levels finally came down to where they want them.

The dialysis is working better now, but we are still +10, when we need to be -200.  I'm still hopeful he can make it there by rounds this morning so they will decide to close his chest.  If not, we have to wait another day.

Last night Will opened his eyes a little.  It was kind of scary, but it was immediately obvious he wasn't in pain and had no clue what was going on.  His little feet were moving slightly, which is a good sign for neural functioning. 

This morning, he was still.  I went over to say good morning and sing to him, and his feet started moving, then he closed his sweet little fingers around mine.  Reflex or not, it was a very special moment for me.

Thank you all for reading Will's blog and following his story.  I will post again tonight, and hopefully with news of a successful chest closure.


Put little socks on him, and his bed has guitar sheets now!
