A walk around Duke campus

Jason here...still.  It looks like Christy is spending another night in the ICU.  She's still having a hard time waking up and they still don't have a bed for her on the floor.  

I did a LOT of walking around today, and it was quite aimless I might add.  From 3 pm to 5:30 pm, ICU sent me walking.  So I wandered about just about the entire Duke campus.  I managed to go to the chapel which I have never been it.  It's a CATHEDRAL for crying out loud.  I mean, check out these photos.  Chapel.

I just got back from taking a very nice stroll where I stopped at TGIFriday's and got a little something to eat.  Some have asked about me so I will say this: Today has taken a toll on me, mainly because I didn't sleep well last night.  I am eating regularly and taking cat naps when I get in a comfortable chair.  I've got some good meds to take tonight to nip that issue.  I should be sleeping pretty soundly tonight.  It's also very frustrating that Christy is having such a hard time coming around.  But it could be more a patience issue on my part.  After all, her body is trying to decide what to do with this new organ.

So as you pray tonight and tomorrow, please remember that I would love for Christy to come around and start being more aware and coherent.  Also, I'd like her to get out of ICU.  Although the nurses there are doing a SUPERB job taking care of her, my time with her is very limited.  Their policies...even for immediate family.  

So it's after 8:30.  I'm going back in there until 10:00, when they'll kick me out for the night.

Good night, and God willing, CHRISTY will be able to brag about our room number at Duke tomorrow night.

Hang in there Jason. As a lung tx recip, I don't know what it's like to be on the other side. My now husband (we were engaged at the time of tx) had a hard time with it because it was so foreign. Try to get some sleep and take it 1 step (and one step back) at a time! We'll keep you and of course Christy in our thoughts. Wake up girl! Love you!
