I arrived in Lincoln a little after 8pm tonight to find Alison's temp down around 99, so that's good. But she still looks pretty lethargic as if the infection is still causing trouble. They moved her to a room with a working AC and have kept cold washcloths on her head and ice packs under her arms. She was on antibiotics yesterday, but today her veins closed up and they haven't been able to get another line in. She really needs those meds so they're going to put in a pic (?) line in the morning, and an infectious disease doc will see her too. She has a bit of phlegm from her sinus' that I've been suctioning from her mouth. But her lungs are clear, so they doubt it's pneumonia, but it could be a sinus infection or something else. We're still not sure. Her nose sounds congested and she's not breathing through her mouth much. I've told them numerous times of her seasonal allergies, and tis the season. She's had a rough couple of days, and probably has a couple more ahead. Please pray for the infection to pass and the meds to work so Alison can get back on the road to recovery.
