This certainly isn't the post I wanted to be writing right now! It makes me SAD!
Mason is most likely in rejection right now. :( :( :(
This might explain the "not himself behavior" this week.
Even before getting back his biopsy, Dr. Everett his almost certain he is in rejection.
Since his last echo 1 month ago, his left ventricle function has decreased and his tricuspid valve function has decreased. (signs of rejection)
Since his last biopsy at the end of September the pressures in his right atrium are significantly higher. (sign of rejection)
Mason will be admitted today to the CVICU here at Primary Children's to receive IV steroids (for rejection) and Milrinone (for heart function).
Dr. E is consulting with Dr Berstein at Stanford about whether he will also need plasma-pheresis like he had last April at Stanford.
Please PRAY with our family that Miracle Mason can yet overcome another speed bump! PRAY he will be STRONG and fight this rejection off! PRAY we can take care of this here at Primary's and not have to return to Stanford. (Stanford is wonderful, but it is sooooo far from our family!)
Here are my famous words: HOPE, FAITH, PRAYER, LOVE, & MIRACLES
If we BELIEVE in all these we can over come this sad speed bump!!!
(Maybe this is all my fault because this is the first time I've come to the Hospital with Mason without bringing an overnight bag in the car with me!!!)
