A message from (and mostly typed by) William!

I'm having a great time at the hospital. I've finally been eating something. (Besides popsicles.)
I got a camera from my Aunt, some candy from my brothers and cousins, a star wars book with
the first three episodes from my cousin Matthew. I got a card from my Dad's friend Jamil and
his son Tariq, here's what it said: "I heard your whatchamacallit got all out of a whack and
discombobulated. It's a good thing they have those thingamabobs to fix your doohickey." Yesterday my brothers and cousins and baseball friends wrote with window markers on the windows. And my coach gave me my trophy a week early - it is a glove that looks exactly like mine and it is designed to put my game ball inside. Two days ago we painted - first we painted on a heart with glitter paint, and I painted the sides but we couldn't pick it up since it was wet. Today in the playroom we did sand art, where you put some glue on paper with a swab, then you dump colored sand over it, then dump the extra sand in a bucket, then it turns out how you wanted it. A dog named Millie came over today and the nurse put a blanket on my bed and Millie climbed on to my bed so I could pet her. I also got to walk her to the playroom. I had TONS of tests today - an EKG, echo cardiogram, bone scan, and skeletal survey, and more blood samples. They were cool - I got to see all the pictures of the inside of my body. Surgery will be tomorrow at 12:30. That's it for now.

  6. Hang in there! We're praying for you, and read the blog all the time. We'll be happy to read how you are doing. Do we need to send up some "Splash Cafe Chowder" for you?

    Some of those tests can scare people, we're glad to hear that you are able to see the cool side to them.

  10. William,
    I love your messages! Great job :-) I was cleaning out my classroom today and remembered all the times I called Clark "William" this year!!! (He always just smiled.) Hope your surgery goes well today...I'm thinking about you.

  11. William,
    You are an awesome blogger! I will look forward to more of your posts telling us about the stuff you've been doing. The dogs in the hospital sound really cool. Baby William would love that--he gets very excited whenever he sees dogs. With all your window decorations, I bet your room is looking great! I hope you know how many people love you and are praying for you. Everyone in our family prays for you in every prayer we say.
