2 for 1

Mason had a busy morning. He had a 2 for 1! 2 procedures under 1 sedation.

First he went to the OR at 7 :30 am to have his port-a-cath placed. This took almost 2 hours by the time they found a good enough vein to use. This port will be very nice to have after we are discharged, because for the first 6 months Mason will have weekly (sometimes even 2x each week) blood draws and IV infusion anti-rejection treatments. So now he won't have to poked each time, nor will finding good vein access be an issue any more. This should last him at least a year.

After the OR he was taken straight to the CATH lab. He was very well behaved again with no unexpected "episodes"! That's what we like! His heart pressures and function are perfect! His Angel heart has absolutely amazed us all, including the doctors, because of how well it has handled his rejection. But at this time we have not received the results of today's biopsy (BIOPSY 3).

Thank you for your continued prayers and love for our sweet Miracle Mason to combat his rejection and have a healthy recovery. I will update tomorrow with biopsy results.
