This is Allie’s mom.  I’m going to try to catch you up on the past few days as Allie has been extremely busy since returning from Houston last Wednesday.  She was very encouraged that Dr. GM from MD Anderson felt it was a good idea she return home to join her family for our annual family vacation at   Lake Michigan.  She also was very elated that she would be able to see Paige perform in Oliver at the conclusion of a very exciting two weeks of drama camp.

Adam, Allie and Paige drove half of their trip to see good friends Friday after the play and arrived at the cottage Saturday afternoon very exhausted.

Unfortunately, Allie started having back pain on the trip and the past few days she found herself needing to rest more often. Last evening new and unfamiliar symptoms of bone pain arose in her torso.  Her pain became very intense throughout the night keeping her awake. Much to her dismay, a prescheduled appt. for labs and a blood transfusion evolved into getting admitted to the hospital in Grand Rapids due to her intense pain and a high temp.  Their goal is to find the source of the fever and get control of her pain.  Once she feels better, she may return to Houston for the new trial drug just recently approved.

It has been wonderful to have the support of family this past week.  We continue to be amazed at Allie’s courage as she deals with the sufferings of this disease. Your prayers for Allie’s next steps in this difficult journey are much appreciated.

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Romans 12:12
