Just a quick post this morning to let everyone know all is well. Brittany and Gaines are right where they are supposed to be.
This morning the nurses checked Brittany's white blood cell count by taking blood. We should know the results in a couple of hours. There are no other signs of infection so we expect good results.
To check for infection, the nurses draw Brittany's blood twice per week and take her temperature every 4 hours. If you do the math (we have been here one week), they have checked her 44 times for infection. I think we have started to take for granted the fact that it only takes one test to come back positive for infection and our world will get turned upside down. Hopefully, it will be a long time before that happens.
Yesterday, a member of Grace Presbyterian Church in DC came to visit us. It seems that this church has kind of "adopted" us. Anyway, our visitor was praying for us and said "God, I know Beau and Brittany appreciate everything you have given them, especially this specific time in their life when you are reminding them that you are in total control". Hearing these words put our hearts at ease. God knows exactly where we are, what we're feeling, and how long we're going to be here. He will provide everything we need and see us through this time in our lives. What an awesome feeling to know we are not in control.
Continue to pray, we are seeing miracles happen everyday.
