Short update

Dear Friends and Prayer Partners,

Louis is continuing on in the hospital for the next day or two, because the infection still has not cleared up, and this decision calms my mind, because he is in no condition to be moved right now.
I talked with the Dr. taking the other doc's place the rest of the week and she was very eloquent and informative about his treatment. I think she is So. African, and had an accent , but seemed well informed. Louis was a little more alert today, not sleeping so much, did not eat his breakfast, but ate all his lunch that I fed him. He also took his meds for me, which he wouldn't do for the nurse.. Even tho' he doesn't know me half the time, he knows my face and called me by name twice with a little prompting.

My young friend, Ryan, will not be there tomorrow, and will be celebrating his 20th birthday!! I knew he was young, but never guessed he is still a teenager. He seems so mature. He is so helpful and knowledgeable about his job, I wish him well, and gave him a hug when I left. He is a blessing!

God is good at finding me parking spaces in the dreaded parking garage. I still do not like it!

Love and hugs,
Amaryllis...very tired
