If she did begin to have symptoms (fever, rash, inflamed joints) we would then put her back on medication to get her immune system back under control. This is a hard decision because Allison is doing so well and we hate to mess with that but we do not want her having to take medication if she doesn't need to be taking it. On the way home from Portland, John and I talked more and we are going to do some more talking, praying and research before we discontinue her meds. on Friday.
While in Portland we visited some friends whose daughter (Courtney) was burned terribly in an accident over the weekend. Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers as she will be in the hospital in Portland for possibly a few months. Her dad works with John at the fire department. It never fails to amaze me how lucky we are to be associated with The Albany Fire Department. The people who work there are quick to rally around each other in times of crisis and need and once again have stepped up for this family. It is a hard thing to understand unless you are a part of it. Makes me proud and thankful to be part of this fire department family.
Have a great day and hug your kids a little closer today.
*** Almost forgot, Allison's blood work was excellent. No issues at all. Whew!!!
