Just not getting any better...

Ally is still not getting any better, and honestly today seemed like an even worse day today. She is just in constant pain and it gets to be hard even when my mom and I are trying to tag team the whole situation. Sometimes it's less work to take Ryder then Ally for a little while. The test they were running with her blood work was to see if her SED rate was going up. When she first got sick it was at a 1. At the hospital last week it was at a 17. Anything under a twenty was normal, and with her tests yesterday I believe she was a 26. The fact that this rate keeps going up shows there is some kind of infection somewhere in her body. Sorry for any medical gurus out there if i'm getting this explaination all work. It's the best I can understand it. Ally's pediatrician at this point is very fustrated because he waited all day for answers from a doctor at Boston Children's Hospital and got no where. Now it is Friday night putting us into another extrememly long weekend. The doctor has decided it is best to have Ally admitted up at Boston Children's since she can get care so much quicker. The process is just taking too long with how long it takes to get an appointment with any of the specialists. He is having her admitted tomorrow morning and telling them what tests he wants done. My mom said that he plans on telling them not to have her released until we have a diagnosis or her pain is bearable. Please say a prayer that we find an answer quickly and that is can be taken care of to get Ally back to her old self. Even Ryder is having a hard time making her smile these days :(

I found your blog through the Bolivar's and was reading about Ally. Please know that I will keep her in my prayers. Prayers for wisdom of the doctors and prayers for God's healing hand to be on her!
