Sorry for the delay in this post, but Hana had another biopsy on Monday and when we got the results back late Tuesday she got a 1A. They treat this the same as 0 rejection. So this is great news and a HUGE relief! They will do another biopsy in a month. One great result of this news is that we will get to go on our VACATION! We haven’t left the Bay Area in two years. We haven’t visited family in 2.5 years. We are really looking forward to our trip.
The downside of all this is all the medications (other than the worry). Hana is back on steroids and three additional medications that go along with long time steroid treatment. Her face has gotten puffy, her blood pressure is higher, her appetite is voracious (now we have the opposite problem of trying to get her to eat) and she’s prone to moodiness (on top of being almost 3-years old). But we will take it! It’s great to have options to keep rejection at bay.
Thank you for all your prayers, thoughts and well wishes! It means so much to us!
