Without getting too technical, Marisa has had to have a ‘tap’ implanted in her abdomen.  This is the result of the fluid buildup in her abdomen.  This ‘tap’ (called a pigtail), which is semi permanent, allows excess fluid to drain out of her body instead of staying inside which was making Marisa very uncomfortable.

This has left Marisa quite tired and in pain.

I can’t tell you the joy and appreciation that Marisa gets from your comments.  They are like medicine.  Marisa said that she had forgotten half of the stories so those were a good reminder.  Thanks.

Thank you for all your cards, comments, prayers and love.   Please keep loving.
