The physicians are having trouble regulating her vitals and recently her blood pressure has gotten too high and she experienced seizures two different times. Rory has been moved to Iowa City Iowa where a team of specialists are currently trying to get her system regulated. When she is well again, she will be put on the kidney transplant list.
