The blood test results didn't come back yesterday, so I'm sorry if I left you anxiously waiting! Needless to say, I was quite anxious myself!!!
This morning the results came in and...............ROUND II will need to begin this afternoon! That being said, I will explain. Mason's antibody levels did drop but he still has a significant amount of the mean, naughty antibodies that want to reject his heart. Not the news I had hoped for, nor the docs, nor any of you for that matter. He will start the 5 day treatment again today of the plasma- pheresis followed by IVIg. We will remain in the CVICU for at least another
As I have tried to find today's sunshine after the 'not so great' antibody test results..........this is what I've found trying to peak through the clouds:
-At least the treatments killed off some of the bad antibodies.
-His echos still show perfect heart function.
-We are getting lots of Mommy & Mason time.
-We spend our days with very nice doctors and nurses.
I once heard this quote:
"Patience is trusting in God's timing"
Today this is what I will work on to help me find more sunshine!!!
Please pray with our family that ROUND II will bring better results.
