So, "the good news" is that Alison did not move to ICU last night, her vital signs remained stable and since 7West is so close to ICU, the doctors felt that it was fine to keep her in her room. Dr. Emre came in this morning and told us that it was decided that Alison should have a filter put in to prohibit any further blood clots from moving into the lungs. ""The good news" is that there is a procedure to help the current situation. At the moment, Alison is resting comfortably-"the good news" is that the intense pain has subsided for now.
At this point, it would be very easy to focus on the negatives but that will not change what has happened and what will happen-we have to stay strong and continue to have faith in Alison's doctors and focus on "the good news". The most important "good news" is that Alison's liver is functioning wonderfully-no....that is "amazing news". With God by our side, we have faith that we will continue to have "amazing news" as we try to move forward.
We are so grateful to all of you for your prayers-the fact that we are surrounded by so many is also "the good news".
Joe and Karen
