More procedures today

Wednesday, 9:30 a.m.

Alison went down for her second catscan in two days at 12:30 a.m.-so,it was again a late night. We just received news that the fluid in her lower abdomen is loculated (spelling?), meaning that it is encapsulated. This means that there is a more complicated procedure to remove this fluid. So, we are now waiting for the doctors to schedule anesthesia along with interventional radiology to remove the fluid from the area around Alison's left lung and her lower abdomen. She was scheduled with IR for 11:30 this morning but with now needing to involve an anesthesiologist, God knows what time these procedures will take place. She cannot eat and is uncomfortable, so we are hoping that the procedures will take place sooner than later. We will update when we know more.

    Thanks for keeping us posted. Everyone is calling with their concern. I know this is probably the last thing you want to do right now, so just wanted you to know we appreciate it and are foremost in our thoughts and prayer for these procedures to be over.
