Biopsy was canceled and postponed until later in the week due to last night's fever.
After looking at this morning's labs Dr. Bernstein (post transplant cardiologist) made the final decision to hold off on today's biopsy.
Mason's CRP level (measures possible infection in the body) is elevated (to 6,
1 or less is normal). So, now they've drawn blood cultures. Thank goodness for his PICC line, so no pokies or owies! And they just started him on an IV antibiotic, vancomycin.
On the bright side, Mason had an echo this morning and his heart function still looks excellent. Also the CRP level does not raise with rejection. So most likely Mason has picked up some kind of little infection bug, but at least no signs of rejection.
It's nap time. This roller coaster has warn us out today :) We'll chat later.
