Yes, today is Brittany's birthday. She turns 28 today! She loves to let me know that her birthdays don't bother her because she always knows that I am two years older than her. She is so sweet.
I am trying to make the day as special for her as I can. She got her annual birthday breakfast this morning of Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls with Icing and a glass of milk. We are going to go to a pool today which is one of Brittany's favorite things to do. At the pool we are going to have burgers and fries for lunch. By the way, Reed calls the swimming pool "Big Bath". Then, later tonight I am taking her to a little Pizza Place here in DC (she is a sucker for pizza, lasagna, or pretty much anything Italian).
Reed and I did get her a small gift (I can't say what it is because she doesn't get it until lunch). Gaines also got her a card and it is waiting for her at his bedside in the NICU. I'm sure Brittany will enjoy all of this but hopefully Gaines will give her the best gift...progress.
He is doing well. His oxygen averaged 33% yesterday which is down about 5% from one week ago. Maybe he will make similar progress this next week.
Thank you for all of the prayers.
