Thursday, 4:15 p.m.
Alison is in having the fluid tapped around her lungs and in her abdomen. The Interventiontal Radiologist thinks that they will place a drain in her abdomen as well. Alison seemed better as the morning went on and into the afternoon. She seemed to find a position that made her abdominal pain more tolerable and the oxygen was helping to make her breathing tolerable. Hopefully, she will be feeling much better after the procedures and be able to eat as she hasn't really eaten much all week. I will try to update again tonight after the procedures are over.
We spoke with John's dad this morning. John is doing well but still uncomfortable. We pray that he will turn the corner to feeling good soon. He and his family certainly deserve some quality, relaxing and enjoyable family time together. They are so concerned about Alison-checking on her at least daily-we are so very lucky to have them in our lives-certainly, an enormous blessing in the midst of this very challenging journey.
Love to all,
Karen & Joe
