4:10 p.m.-Thursday

Alison had the filter put in this morning-it involved another procedure for her to endure but we're so grateful that something could be done to keep the blood clots out of Alison's lungs. She is recuperating from the procedure, feeling tired. Let's hope that this is the last "glitch" and Alison can begin to strengthen herself for recovery.

We understand that Alison's donor also had a complication yesterday. We also understand that he is now recovering-we are so worried about him and his parents and want them to know that we are here for them. To the donor family-we want to share our cell phone number, it is 203-610-4338. Please call if you would like to have a cup of coffee together. We would really like to know how your son is doing but, again, respect your wishes.

In gratitude,
Joe and Karen
