When Alison was brought up to ICU, she was in a lot of pain. She was communicating with us though, trying to write us notes. She came off the ventilator at about 2:30 this morning, which the doctors were very pleased about. One of the first things she said was, "How is he"-meaning her donor. We assured her that he is doing well although in a lot of pain as well. Joe and I both spent the night. Alison's pain continues but we will really have to push her today-it's seems like it's so soon but the doctors say that her breathing and moving her legs are so important.
