Alyssa Update

Hi, I would like to start this by thanking all of you for your continued support. The phone calls, emails, and cards always put a smile on Alyssa's face - and that is priceless for us.

I'd also like to add that Josh and Chris have been amazing. They can get forgotten in all this, but their lives, too, have been turned upsidedown. They are there for her everyday, helping her however they can, and spending so much time with her. They are pretty special for teenage boys, and I'm very proud of them.

Now for Alyssa's progress - A couple of weeks ago, on a Wednesday night, her blood pressure hit an all time high, but luckily by lunch time the next day, it had come back down. She then enjoyed four days of feeling really well - she was playing with Josh and Chris, actually had a little jump on the trampoline, and she happily did a little retail therapy (as all girls do!!).

On Monday, she became very unwell while we were at the hospital, and they advised that her kidneys were now down to 10%. She became worse and worse each day throughout the week - and this seemed to peak on Saturday - she was sick all day and all night. Then, on Sunday, she started to feel a little better and hasn't been too bad since.

Alyssa was scheduled to have surgery tomorrow (Tuesday), but we found out tonight that it's had to be postponed. We'll find out tomorrow what the next course of action is, so I'll keep you posted.

On a happier note, when Alyssa has been feeling okay, she's been doing some beautiful creations for Mandy at Scrappy-Go-Lucky. Make sure you check them out here on Tuesday and Sunday.

Take care,
Love, Tereesa.


  1. I hope Alyssa continues to feel better and better as each day passes! Prayers continue and I hope the surgery is quick so she can go home with her wonderful brothers!

  2. i will continue to have you all in my prayers and in my heart. please, feel the love from me and a big hug too.

  3. Thanks for the update, please give her a hug from me.
