The results are in...

Let me just start out by saying the zoo was amazing! Lynlee did so well in 93 degrees heat. She enjoyed every minute of the zoo. We took lots of breaks, drank lots of water, and had much needed family time.

Yesterday went easy too easy to be exact. They said they would take her back at 8am for the biopsy. She went back at 8:10. This is almost unheard of in hospital time. We had an ultra sound scheduled for 3:40 and they were able to get it done at 11am. We were home by 5:30.

We got the results of everything late this afternoon. Her ultrasound was clear which meant no blockages, but the biopsy did show some mild rejection. The words "barely there" were even used.

So what does this mean...... Well it means they will increase her rejection medicine, and they will add a few more meds to our daily routine. One of them being a steroid. Since it was so mild we can manage it all from home for now. We will have repeat labs next week.

That's basically it. It's pretty simple, and it could have been so much worse. Sometimes when they find the rejection it can be moderate to severe which means multiple days in the hospital and IV steroids. So I'm thankful for the oral meds and being at home.

I'm also thankful for the prayers and support over the past couple days. Our friends and family have been once again more than amazing and we couldn't have done it without you.


  1. Breathing such a sigh of relief! Thank goodness it is mild! Hopefully quickly treating it will whip it right back into shape!

  2. Crazy liver! Behave yourself!! Phew, I was almost too scared to read the post!
