Brittany and I visited Gaines this evening. He is continuing to hold his sats at 70% oxygen. Everything else is basically the same. His platelet count is measuring a little low. They are going to test it again. If it is low they are going to give him platelets.
Brittany and I went to CVS and a little grocery store this afternoon and stocked up on the essentials...bread, peanut butter, jelly, ham, mustard, and drinks. We are trying to make our place here in DC feel as much like home as possible. We actually ate a home cooked meal tonight for the first time in a while. One of my friends (the same ones doing our laundry) brought us homemade spaghetti and caesar salad. It was so good. I also get to sleep in a real bed tonight for the first time in a little over five weeks (no more chair/bed).
By the way, one bit of very encouraging news. Each time Brittany and I visit Gaines, we say a prayer before we leave. Tonight, Gaines' nurse spoke to us before we left and told us she said a prayer for him at church this morning.
We will visit Gaines again first thing in the morning and update everyone. By the way, Brittany wants me to mention that today is Jack's birthday (our dog) and that Reed made it safely back to Alabama.
