Blue meant a lot of joy, not sadness, for a sailor and his wife at the Brooke Army Medical Center’s Fisher House on Jan. 31.

The Fisher House, which serves as a home for families of ill or injured patients receiving treatment, held a gender reveal party for Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Aashis Luitel and his wife, who are expecting their first child this year.

“Here at the Fisher House, we’re a family,” Fisher House Manager Inge Godfrey said. "The residents all got together and decided they wanted to have a gender reveal party here for them and so I wanted them to have the support of the Fisher House.”

A balloon was popped and blue confetti flew out, signaling the couple will have a boy.

Cake, decorations and snacks were brought in for everyone at the Fisher House for the reveal.

“This is great,” Luitel said. “I want to thank the Fisher House staff and residents for all they’ve done for us.”
