Fortunately I have no medical news to report. However, we do have some good news.
Brittany got to take a shower this morning. This was the first time she had done this in five days. It made her feel a lot better. When she was done she dried her hair and put on her makeup. I think it gave her a little bit of normalcy. She is now going to spend the rest of the day in bed.
Soemthing else interesting happened this morning. GW Hospital has many security "checkpoints" in the hospital. Each morning I go to the cafeteria on the first floor and get my morning coffee. When I return, I have to pass through the main security "checkpoint" in the lobby. When you approach the security desk, you have to sign in, identify why you are there and show a picture ID. As I approached this morning the security guard waived me through and said "Good to see you this morning, Alabama". From day one all of the secuirty guards have commented on my Alabama driver's license. I guess we have been here long enough the hospital staff is starting to know who we are. It sounds weird, but simple things like that make you feel at home.
Thanks for all the prayers. We can certainly feel God's presence in our room.
