A Short 24 hours later on Sunday we find ourselves at Johns Hopkins emergency department with yet another breakdown and infection in your beleaguered scalp. It feels a universe away from the magic of Brightwood, but even here at 3 o'clock in the morning we are blessed with precious moments. A compassionate but clearly exhausted surgical resident delivers good news with a warm smile. Your bloodwork and CAT scan suggest the problem is still superficial. The primary craniofacial reconstructive surgeon cannot see us until Tuesday and cultures and more bloodwork are pending. We are grateful for the good news and stumble out of the hospital bleary eyed to find a nearby hotel.
We will make the most of this day. Austin is driving up to deliver more medication and supplies. We plan to visit the aquarium to reconnect with each other and some sorely missed marine life! Hopefully tomorrow will bring more encouraging news and a clear path for the future.
With love and gratitude for precious moments,
Forrest and Toliver Saturday at Salamander Resort in Middleburg
