Happy News

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!!!

Such good news. A true miracle (again) for your family!! We had a return missionary give his talk last week and he talked about miracles. He mentioned 2 scriptures i really liked.
3 Nephi 8:1
(i can't find the other one, i'll send it when i find it!)
To sum it up, to receive miracles in your life..
1: you must have faith
2: you must be worthy
you guys are cleary doing both! Good job :)

I am so glad things are going so well for little Mason. I haven't read your blog for a while and just read and was so sad to hear about the possible rejection :(
it sounds like things are looking much better though!

You definitely have a little fighter on your hands!

As always, you and your family are in my prayers. Hopefully 2011 will be a wonderful, healthy year for you and your family!

ps. I am so sad that I wasn't at my store when you stopped in. One of these days we will actually meet in person :)
