GOOD Morning!!!

Saturday, 11:00 a.m.

Good reports all the way around this morning. Lab work is indicating that the internal bleeding has stopped. We are so relieved. Liver function tests are looking really good-her new liver gets an A+-we're sure her donor would be very proud. We are elated!!! Alison took a walk all the way around the unit today. Her main challenge is the swelling in her legs and abdomen. Doctors say that this is to be expected but is very uncomfortable none the less. Alison hopes to have her diet advanced today-she's banking on solids but we'll see. She will have the second drain removed lster today-this is pretty uncomfortable, so please pray for her strength to endure. We're hoping that she may be moved out of ICU-we're waiting for Dr. Emrea to give the word. Although the doctors will continue to monitor Alison closely, she is certainly improving-just amazing.
Have a good day, we will try to post this afternoon.

  1. I am so glad to hear that Alison is up and walking around. This means she will soon be moved out of the ICU and into her own room.
    That is wonderful news. All my prayers are for Alison and her donor , that they both will be feeling better real soon. Hope all is well with the family and I wish you all the best.
    Love, Aunt Marcia
