Sunday evening

9:20 p.m.

OK, so the evening has turned out to be no better than the afternoon. Alison's right arm has become red and warm and the veins are very prominent. This is concerning as this is the arm that has the two bloodclots. The doctors are having the on-call ultrasound staff come in from home to do an ultrasound of her arm to see what is happening with the bloodclots. The other problem is that the IV in her left arm is not working and the nurses have been unable to get another IV in. The process of trying to find another IV spot, is pretty painful. All in all it's been a pretty challenging day. Biggest worry at this point is the right arm. Can't wait to get the ultrasound done-will try to post when we have more information.

  1. So much going on. Wishing we can take the pain away. Lots of prayers and good wishes coming your way. Feel Better.
    Love Aunt Sandi

  2. Sending lots of prayers for a speedy solution. Hang on tight. You are surrounded by those who love you and sending lots of good thoughts.

  3. Off for a talk with my 2nd significant "other". St. James has a healing mass this morning at 8:00 am. Wanted to go again this morning to give the people who were so comforting to me last week an update. They seem to have a close relationship with each other and as one woman said last week, they are a very prayerful group. We will send them up and I'm sure He is listening.

    Love to all of you.

  4. Alison keep the faith everything will be fine. You, your donor and your family are still in our thoughts and in our prayers.
