More blood clots

Monday, 9:30 p.m.

So we now had an ultrasound of Alison's left arm this evening and just got the results. She has two blood clots on the left side. This along with the expanded blood clots on the right side that were discovered last Saturday are very concerning. The transplant team is consulting with the the vascular team to see what the plan will be. We can either start a new blood thinner which is a challenge as we cannot get an IV in her veins so they may need to put a pic line in or they may want to put a filter in. They just hooked Alison back up to the monitors to watch her closely. We are on pins and needles waiting for the teams to make some decisions. This along with other issues today, has been pretty overwhelming. Please continue to keep praying as we are not "out of the woods" yet.

  3. Dear Alison & Karen:

    I know you both had a terrible and frustrating day. I wish I could have helped some when I was there. Hang in there. I'm sure the doctors are doing everything they can to try to get everything stable. Let whatever stumbling blocks that you guys are facing happen while you are in the best place to take care of them. You are first and foremost in my prayers. Love you both so very much!
