Sunday morning update

10:50 a.m.
Alison's creatinine level (a marker for kidney function)rose to 4 today. This is certainly concerning but expected. The good news is that she is beginning to have clinical signs of her kidney's recovering (labs lag behind but should start to reflect beginnings of recovery soon). The doctors will do an ultrasound to make sure that the blood flow to the kidneys is good. The very challenging news is that Alison will have to go back on tube feeding. This is very upsetting for her. The doctor will be back shortly to place the tube once again. Please pray that she have the strength to endure this next leg of the journey. We will update soon.
