Final Update

I am in the waiting room for 8:30 to come around because that will be the last time that we will be able to see Will tonight. I am so proud of him. When Liz, his sister, calls him Superman, or other people say that Will is Superhuman, they ain't kidding. He looks great, but he is in a great deal of pain. He has an incision from the middle part of his top chest to right above his navel. He is doing so well (considering his situation). He is truly a fighter. The nurses are scrambling around the other patients, and Will is just doing his own thing. They had to put a pace maker on him because his heartbeat went down to 39, 50 is where they want him. At one point, they thought he was anemic, but once again Will did a "Willpowerism," and he bounced back from that, so at this point, they are not going to give him blood. Dr. Reardon has visited him twice since surgery, so when I say that he is in good hands, he is in the BEST hands. This place is unbelievable! I can't say enough good things about this place. He drank some grape juice when I was in the ICU with him.

Thanks again to everyone for EVERYTHING that you have done for us. We wouldn't be where we are right now if it wasn't for your constant support. We hope that you have a great holiday and wonderful New Year... bring on 2010!

We are elated to say the least to hear such wonderful news about Will's surgery!!

We will be praying for a quick recovery for you, Will, and truly feel you are going to beat this thing. You are amazing, and your strength is a real inspiration to us!! You probably don't even know what a positive impact you have had on others as you go through this and share your experience.

God bless you both and have a wonderful Christmas!!
