The past week has had its good times and bad for Ally. Ally returned home from Pittsburgh Thursday night very exhausted and tired from the long trip. The doctors there said that they have not had any calls for intestinal transplant for almost 2 months now. Ally is grouped with two other younger children with a blood type AB in our region waiting for an intestinal transplant. Ally being the oldest and having the longer time on the wait list, will put her closer to the top. Her points as of now are 28 out of 40. That's ok, more in the 30's would of been better.
All we can do now is wait, just like we have for the past 10 months.
Friday, Ally ventured out with her sister to do some Trick-or-treating. She had a great time! Pictures will come later this week.
Saturday and Sunday were not that great of days for Ally. As the weekend progressed, the more frequent and higher her temps. became.
Sunday night, was the worst night of the entire week. Of course right before a long day in the hospital Monday. Ally ran high temps. all night long, we lost power at home with the high winds, and somehow got 2 hours of sleep.
Monday at 5:15 a.m. Daddy and Ally made the long trip to dupont to have her infected central line removed. Surgery was at 8:45 a.m. Everything went fine with the removal of the line. It was quite the experience for Daddy and Ally to go at this alone without Mommy around (working). Needless to say after surgery in the recovering area, there were alot of Mommy's been yelled from Ally! As Monday passed, Ally still has not cleared her temps. This is a great concern, mostly because in the past as soon as the source of infection (line) is removed, signs of high temps disappear. Today will tell us more of what is to come. As of last night she was very tired and sick! Please pray these temps and infection clear, so Ally can have a new line placed tomorrow.
We will update again with any further news.
