June 15th, 2008

Today is kind of a yin-yang day. Late last night Carol was able to stop having her blood pressure supported by blood pressure med's, and keep it high enough on her own. She is "grimmacing" when we move her, and moving her head when I hold her hand...all good signs.

Today her temperature is slightly elevated (102 degrees), and her heart rate is a little tachycardic (fast). They are not quite sure why yet, maybe just the internal inflammation causing it. They are looking into it. Her blood levels dropped again, so she is getting transfusions, and platelets for clotting...all not great signs.

Her right arm, and both legs are getting nice and warm again, good sign that blood is getting out there again. Her left arm is staying pretty cold for some reason. Maybe a clot somewhere, they are checking that out as well.

So a couple steps forward and couple back today it seems. Will keep you posted. If have questions on anything...feel free to ask.

Scott, Safiya is beautiful. We love you and are thinking and praying for you and your family. We wish we could be there with you--it's been hard for me to be in Boston during all this. I'll get in touch with you this week.
