Our second visitor was a stranger to us when we met him, but left as a friend! Through a mutual contact back in Winkler (thanks Olferts!), Chris, a pastor of a local church, came to the hospital to meet us. It was great getting to know him and about his very musical family! It's so great to feel connected in this community of faith and just knowing people who will be there for you if you need them! I'm looking forward to listening to his family's 'just released' CD!
And....the third visitor isn't actually here yet, but they're on their way!! My mom and dad are coming out again and guess who is with them! It's my Brady!!! Can't wait to see them tomorrow! Doesn't feel quite real!
As for Nate, his day was pretty good! Still has fluid around his heart, so the echo - which will now be tomorrow - should shed some light on where that's at. It's still going to be a while here, so that's the reason for visitor #3!! Nate's hemoglobin was really low (74!), so this afternoon he got a blood transfusion. That's the best way to get that number up quickly, short of eating a few pounds of spinach! It took about four hours to infuse, but thankfully we were still able to be mobile during most of that time!
Time for me to put my thumbs to rest - blogging is a bit more tedious when you're doing it on a BB! Tonight is my night at the hospital, which is fine by me, because that means tomorrow night I can snuggle with my Brady!!
