morning update

8:45 a.m.

Dr. Emre came in this morning and said that Alison really does need to have the lumbar puncture (spinal tap). She is very upset and frightened about this procedure. Please pray that she will get through it with the least amount of pain and stress. She will also go to Interventional Radiology this afternoon for the tapping of fluid from around her lungs and in her abdomen. The doctors are trying to specify the type(s) of bacterial or viral infections that Alison has so that they can determine the most appropriate treatment. They are hoping to be able to take her off some of the five antibiotics that they proactively have her on now.
We will update later.


  1. Constantly praying for you! Hang in there Alison and Mom! You two make such a great and strong team!
