Liver Biopsy Today

Friday, 6:30 p.m.

Alison had a liver biopsy today. Her liver enzymes have been high for the past several weeks and the doctors decided yesterday that it was necessary to see what is going on. After a very long afternoon of waiting, Alison finally went in for the procedure, she did well but is now very uncomfortable. We will be here for the next couple of hours as she needs to be watched for potential bleeding, etc.

Overall, Alison has been doing well over the past several weeks, some difficulties with her stomach but she start taking a few courses back at Sacred Heart. She also moved in to the house with her roommates and sister. Hopefully, things are moving in the right direction and this biopsy will not reveal anything too concerning. Please pray that she will have a smooth recovery and that whatever is causing her liver enzymes to be elevated will be easily rectified.

Hope all is well with everyone. Don't forget to call for your tickets to the Ali's Angels Benefit Concert. Ticket are going fast and it is reserved seating. From what we hear, benefit concerts like this one have sold out in the past. There was an article in the Trumbull Times yesterday about John's amazing gift to Alison as well as the Benefit. It was similar to the article in the Fairfield Citizen that have been posted on the blog-we are very happy about the publications as they provide opportunities to acknowledge John's wonderful act of giving, educate the public about organ donation and inform people about the benefit.

Have a good weekend,
Karen and Joe
