Infection or Rejection ???


Yes, that's right.....we are back in the hospital as of this afternoon! Bummer!



Mason was admitted this afternoon because he got sick over the weekend. I guess we wore him out having so much fun with the whole family here!!



We do hope he did just pick up a yucky bug and that his symptoms are not because of rejection. It is hard to tell the difference between an infection and rejection w/ heart transplant kiddos. Symptoms can be very similar.


He has thrown up his meds and some of his feeds since Saturday morning and then last night came down w/ a nasty cough and fever. The doctors want to make sure he is staying hydrating and keeping his meds down, while monitoring him for any more signs of rejection.


So far in the last couple of hours since we got here Mason has had an echo, chest x-ray, blood cultures and other labs drawn, urine sample taken, seen by 3 doctors, and I think that is it......enough don't you think!!! They take these symptoms very serious! But, I do not have any of the results yet!


PRAY with us PLEASE that this is just a simple little harmless infection and not rejection. PRAY that this will be a short hospital stay and not delay our return to our home in Utah. Thank you for your love and support! I will update when I have news.

Oh, I'm sure all the family fun just wore him out. It's not rejection. It can't be because we don't want it to be. :)

We're praying for a quick hospitalization and that this doesn't delay your trip HOME!!!!
