Navy Hospital, Pearl Harbor

Headache getting better.

There is one quite pretty nurse here by the name of Miss Albers. Will have to investigate her a little more thoroughly when I get up.

The nurses very rarely have much to do with the patients here, most of the work being done by the corpsmen. This morning, however, one of the nurses, Miss Walker, decided to give me a bath, instead of letting Paul do it as usual. This caused great mirth and ribaldry among my two roommates and Oliver.

Doc opened up my side a little and let out a lot of “serum” — feel much better.
