It is now 3:30 a.m. on Thursday morning. Unfortunately, Alison began to experience chest pain last night. After an ultrasound and a CT Scan, it was determined that Alison has another pleural effusion and a pulmonary embolism in the lower left lobe of her lung. The embolism is small. The docotrs are changing her blood thinnner medication and for precautionary measures, moving her back to the Intensive Care Unit. All of Alison's vital signs are good but she is in a significant amount of pain. The teams of doctors will meet this morning to discuss further plans.
