Update

Just a quick update here. Abbey is doing well. Her headache is gone and she underwent the MRI last night. The resident radiologist said that he felt that the clot actually looked smaller than it was originally. Shelley said that the doctors this morning weren't sure if it was smaller, but they did say that the blood flow around the clot is better and that means the shots are doing their job.
The doctors feel that the headache was a result of the spinal tap that Abbey had on Thursday. They don't think it was a result of the clot. So, we are relieved and praising God for this good news. Shelley and Abbey are coming come some time today. Thank you all for your kind words and continued prayers. You are all a blessing to us.

Aw poor baby. Those headaches aren't fun at all. We're praying that you make it through the rest of the phase "bump free".
