Today has been replete with setbacks. We haven’t had a formal sit-down with Ali’s doctors so we don’t really have a sense of whether or not this is how it goes – two steps forward, one step back – or if she’s taken a definitive turn for the worse.
In the meantime, even though we have a lot of confidence in the team here at Highland Hospital, we were made of aware of the guy for head trauma in the Bay Area. His name is Geoffrey Manley and he’s based at of UCSF. Right now we don’t have any way to contact him short of a cold call (which I’ve already done). This is a shot in the dark but I’m wondering if anybody out there knows anyone in the UCSF neurology department. No one here has any idea if he’s in town, willing to consult or even whether he has anything more to offer in terms of her care. But at this point we want to try everything.
