Will seems to have stabilized a bit tonight. During our visit this evening he was rock solid, needing no changes to his oxygen levels. That need still is higher than it was over the weekend, but better than it had been last night or even earlier today. I'd credit the antibiotics, but now they say they aren't sure he has an infection after all. It might be inflammation in the lungs, which means another course of steroids is likely in the offing. That has been good news for him in terms of the way he has reacted to it in the past, but we'd like to see him move past needing it at all. All in good time, I suppose, as all things are with our little guy. He's definitely bigger and stronger than he was the last time we were at this point, which is a good thing.

He's acquiring quite a little library in his room thanks to the kindness of friends and family (and his Mom's love of children's books), and seemed to enjoy the stories Mary read to him tonight. His nurse suggested that Mary should stay all night to read if it meant having him this stable, and she seemed to only be half joking (and Mary wasn't joking at all when she said she'd love to). In the end, we decided it would be better for all involved (except the nurse, of course) to get a good night's sleep to rest up for whatever tomorrow brings.
