Last summer, before I began my journey along Route 66, our Red Hat group was given a tour of the “under construction” Fairfax County courthouse by one of our own DARling Dames who is the project engineer. For that event, the husband of DARling Dame Mary, Bill Wells, sent along two custom-made red hard hats, to make some of us appear extra stylish in the photographs.
A year later finds Bill and Mary Wells having spent almost the entire summer in hospital trying to get Bill recovered from an abdominal wound caused when a feeding tube was inserted into the small intestine during a medical procedure.
Yesterday was a wonderful day of accomplishment for Bill, as he was finally removed from the ventilator and is now breathing on his own. It is also a day of gratitude to God for His help in answer to all the prayers that were offered for Bill. Here is the Caring Bridge web site where we have been able to follow Bill and Mary’s travails: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/billwells
