Evening Update

11:00 p.m.

So, Alison finally had the fluid tap done at 8:30 p.m.-six and a half hours late-ugh!! We returned to her room around 10:00 p.m. The doctor drained 1,000 cc's of fluid from her left side, 350 from the right, 650 from her abdomen and left a drain in her abdomen, which has already drained another 450 cc's. The abdominal drain has been very painful for Alison. The doctor indicated that he had a hard time draining the fluid from the right side. He said it was loculated, which means encased. We're not sure what Dr. Emre will say about that-hopefully not another drain. Alison was able to eat when she returned to her room-yeah!! Please pray that the pain from the abdominal drain will subside and that Alison and mom will be able to get some rest tonight.
Until tomorrow,
Karen and Joe


  1. Thinking good thoughts and sending lots of prayers as this rollercoaster ride continues. I hope you had a restful night and today brings good results with lessening pain. Sending hugs.

  2. Here's hoping for a "short" 7 day visit that will take you home on Christmas Eve to be with your familiy, Alison. Hang in there. We are thinking of you - 3 Moores and a Lamb

  3. Always thinking of you all. Alison, you're once again...AMAZING!! I have to say you're the strongest person I know! We will continue to send good wishes your way and hope that all the pain subsides...soon! Hang in there kiddo!
