Celebrating "0"



Today's post deserves a few celebration balloons!!!


The biopsy results came back from the lab late this afternoon and................. they are fabulous!


We are celebrating "0"rejection!


This is much better than we all expected. Even though clinically Mason looks great and has shown no more signs of rejection, because his rejection was so severe just 3 weeks ago we didn't expect a "0" already! What a blessing! Thus we all deserve to celebrate Miracle Mason and his amazingly strong Easter Angel Heart this night!!!!


Mason also finally made the official move to the third floor tonight. He seems much less agitated up here. Definitely not home, but one step closer.


Although Mason's biopsy came back at a "0", he still has some "bad guy" antibodies in his blood. So we will be in the hospital at least 1 more week doing IVIg treatments and possibly one other type of antibody treatment, Velcade. This is to try and prevent his antibodies from attacking his new heart again.


I am very grateful this day and always for: the prayers and faith of all of you, the "tender mercies of the Lord", and for all of Mason's doctors, surgeons, and nurses whom along with our faith make all these miracle possible.



Quote of the Day:

"....the Lord’s tender mercies do not occur randomly or merely by coincidence. Faithfulness, obedience, and humility invite tender mercies into our lives, and it is often the Lord’s timing that enables us to recognize and treasure these important blessings." ~David A Bednar~

Our 5 year-old just saw over my shoulder that I was looking at Mason's blog, and she said, "Is it a good update Mommy?" I told her about the zero rejection and she jumped off the couch with her arms in the air and said, "Hooray for Mason!!" We agree!!! So excited for your little family....

I am so thrilled with this good news! Way to go, Mason. We continue to pray for him--he has stolen our hearts. Hopefully both of you will enjoy the 3rd floor more and both of you will get more rest. Summer, you never cease to amaze me. What faith.

In this world of bigger is better an important race was won with a score of ZERO! How greatful we are to understand the need of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. What a blessing for Mason as so many join their faith and prayers in his behalf. In Mason's struggle so many are being blessed.
