Mason's echo looked much better today. Hooray!! His left ventricle function improved over night, almost back to normal. Wow! Absolutely a miracle! His tricuspid valve leakage also improved from severe to moderate. This news is definitely happy news! The small dose of Milrinone and the super strong dose of IV steroids along with many prayers brought a mighty change in my sweet little boy's angel heart. For this I am so grateful.
They stopped the Milrinone this morning and now Mason just needs to complete the 3 full days of IV steroids. Sunday morning he'll have his last dose and then another echo. If his echo still looks good and close to his normal then we will get to go home! Yeah!! I must say, this hospital stay is turning out much better than I had thought yesterday after his biopsy and echo. We could have been here for weeks if he truly had been in rejection.
So far all the blood work has come back negative for viral or bacterial infections. Thus we are unsure still what caused the decreased hear function.
Thank you to all of you for your sweet comments, prayers, concern, love, and those helping at home. I never feel alone on this journey. Thank you!!!
