the real william update

well, I guess I didn't really give the lowdown on what happened to William. For those of you who know William, you may know that when he turns sideways, you can't see him! He is tall and SKINNY. Last week, when he was playing flag football, it got a little physical and he tackled a soccer buddy. Unfortunately, the buddy's shoulder and William's spleen connected. William ended up in the ICU at the hospital in Monroe, GA. He was there for a couple of days, then was a patient of the regular floor. He was watched very carefully, with many blood draws, an IV, 3 CT scans and lots of vital signs! The best part for everyone was no surgery! While he was in the hospital and had to stay mostly in bed, we watched TV, read books, and played scrabble. William even won! He got to go home on Wednesday morning and I flew home on Thursday. Even though the hospital would not have been my choice for a vacation, it was nice spending time with William. Angela and Jeremy came and hung out with us. We even got some cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory, thanks to Matu and Poppy, Katie and Josh. And all the nurses and other staff at the hospital were great!

William was very proud of his legs while he was at the hospital. He had just created the checkerboard look because the soccer team was going to state. As you can guess, everyone noticed...
