Today the sun shown through the clouds to brighten our day.
Mason is not very happy about still being in the hospital, so he is requiring all my undivided attention right now. That being said......this post will be very short. But, at least it is a GOOD NEWS post! A happy SUNNY post!
Mason's BIOPSY 8 yesterday came back with a fabulous score of ZERO!!! Hip hip hooray!!! This beautiful shiny ZERO means Mason gets to taper down just a little more on the nasty steroids.
Although we are so grateful for a great biopsy, we still don't have an answer as to why Mason had that scary episode on Wednesday. At least it wasn't caused by rejection, but we'd would love to know why it happened. I pray it never happens again! Little Mason needs a break! Don't you think?!!!
The pneumatosis is improving, but still present on Mason's KUB's (tummy x-rays). The GI team and the transplant team would like to keep him on IV antibiotics and TPN (nutrition) until it's gone. They are slowly allowing him to have water and ice again because that has been the hardest part for Mason of going with out food or drink all week. He's been a little happier tonight because he can have sips of water!!
I hope for a great weekend with much improvement in Mason's belly sickness so that we can get home by Monday or Tuesday. I really want to be home to get my kiddos ready for their first day of School, which is Wednesday. I can't believe I will have 4 kids in elementary school this year. 6th grade, 4th grade, 2nd grade, and kindergarten!! Are they really that old? Wow!
Thanks for all your special prayers this week, the meals, the house cleaners, the babysitting, and all the special messages of support.
