This all came so UNEXPECTEDLY, especially because yesterday's echo showed great function and no changes, as well as his heart pressures from the cath looked great. It could be much worse I know, so I am just grateful we caught it before it affected his heart function. I will say, Mason has been a little whiny and grumpy lately but I just couldn't pin point what was wrong. So maybe it has been the rejection making him feel yucky. The transplant team said that the rejection possibly came from him having so many infections over the last 5 months, because this can cause your bodies immune system to rev up (even on his Prograf and Celcept-immune suppression/anti rejection meds) and make antibodies to fight the infections which can then start to fight the transplanted heart.
We all know Miracle Mason is a fighter,
so with a little help from steroids, prayers,
and good luck he will kick this rejection
and make his heart happy again.
Now for the EVENTFUL part of yesterday.....
Thank you for you love, concern, positive thoughts, and prayers. Have a great weekend!
