Procedures are completed

Wednesday, 8:20 p.m.

We went down for Alison's procedure at 3:00 and returned to her room at 7:30 p.m. Many thanks to Sandi for spending the afternoon with me-it really helped to have the company. The doctor tapped 900 cc's of fluid from around Alison's right lung and 800 cc's from around the left lung. He also tapped 300 cc's from an absess in Alison's lower abdomen and put a drain in. Alison now has two drains. She is pretty uncomfortable but hopefully, with pain medication will be able to get relief. We will get more information on what this all means when we see Dr. Emre in the morning. Please pray for a quiet night.

  1. Dear Karen,
    Hope Alison gets the relief she needs and so deserves. From what I saw today, and what her days have been like, she is definetly a trooper, fighter and a winner. May she continue with strength and courage to get through these tough and trying days to follow. Praying for a good night with no emergency interuptions.
    Glad I was able to spend the time talking with you. You made my day complete.
    Good night to you both,
    Love always Sandi xxxo
