Finally, today we have good new! No actually......GREAT NEWS!
1) Mason is officially on the heart transplant list, as 1B status, here at Lucille Packard Children's Hospital. (Here doesn't mean he's in the hospital though.....just on their list. And 1B is second priority level)
2) The IVIg treatments that Mason had last week were successful! Before the treatments Mason had class I antibodies at 0 %, but class II at 86% (the smaller # the better) which included 3 popular binding antigens that would need to be avoided on his listing. Now Mason has 0 antigens that need to be avoided on his listing which opens him up to a much larger donor pool!! Hooray! (They didn't get the actual % of his class I and II, because it is difficult to get an accurate reading of that right after the IVIg treatments.) Mason will need to continue IVIg treatments every 4 weeks while waiting for his heart (and probably after too) to keep his antibody levels down.
Mason is anxious for me to get off the computer, but I want to thank you for ALL your continued prayers on our behalf! We feel soooo loved! I will post soon to let you know how we're doing or with any news. I don't have wifi access where I'm staying so it makes it difficult to post, but we've been coming over to the hospital when we can to use their wifi.
Please pray for the dear donor family also while you pray for Mason.
xoxoxo to our sweet family at home! We love you and miss you extremely!
