Half-way There

Sorry for the late post, folks.  I've been in the ICU with Christy all day.  2 1/2 hours of it I slept in the chair and didn't even know it.  Which reminds me, I've got phone calls to return.

Okay, big moment....for me anyway.  God has hooked us up today.  Duke just moved us to a step-down room about 30 minutes ago.  I don't have to get a hotel room tonight.  Although I would sleep better in one, I do get to stay here with my wife.

Also, Christy is AWAKE!!! She's very sluggish like a sloth and goes in and out of  sleep.  She's very coherent and aware.  Thank you God for these two things.  It has made me feel a lot better.  Christy will be making a post herself later on this evening.  She's been asking for the laptop and her phone.  Or should I say demanding.
