Results Are In.......



Biopsy results are in and I have much better news than I had imagined. The results are puzzling, but I won't complain....... ZERO rejection! I can't believe it! Except, this is why we call my sweet little boy 'Miracle Mason'!


That ZERO doesn't make everything all better, but it definitely helps get us back in the right direction.


Dr. E here at Primary's and Mason's two transplant Dr's at Stanford consulted quite thoroughly today. They are still concerned about his decreased heart function, and higher pressures, but are very glad he's not in rejection. It is unclear right now what may be the cause. They are running several blood tests to look for different viruses that can affect heart function.


For now the plan is to stay here at least 3 more days. He will be getting 3 days of IV steroids and 1 day of IV Milrinone. Hopefully this will help his heart function, help him feel better, and get us back home soon.


I am so very grateful for all of your prayers and for some good news at the end of a long day!!!

The power of Prayer is amazing.
I hope with a little medicine adjustment he will be back home in no time. and soon off the steroids for good.

Wow- that's amazing news! What a roller coaster of emotion you have been on in the last 24 hours! Praying that they get everything figured out soon so Mason can get home again soon.

That is GREAT news. We will continue to pray for a speedy recovery and for a proper diagnosis of what is causing the reduced heart function.

We love you guys!!!!!

Oh my goodness what great news! We are actually in PCMC CICU right now as well after having the Glenn on Wednesday. I have followed your blog for over a year since our son was diagnosed with HLHS in utero. I was just sick when I read your rejection post but couldn't be more happy for you and relieved this morning! We will continue to pray for you. We can certainly attest to the miraculous power of prayer.
