Today is the waiting day, Lauren’s biopsy results……….

Yesterday, Lauren had her heart biopsy.  Off to Boston.  Her last biopsy was 3 months ago all  good.  Lauren had her heart transplant on Dec. 30, 2013. Since the transplant she has had 2 slight rejections, the dr.’s told us that is normal.  Well, it might be normal to have a slight rejection, those are the words you do not want to hear.  They needed to adjust her medication to correct rejection.  The rejections were at the beginning of her journey after transplant, we haven’t had one in a while.  Thank God.

If you read my last post, it explains the biopsy process.  When a body receives a new organ through transplant it will always see it as a foreign organ.  That is why a recipient must always take rejection medication every day.

So anyway, it was a long day yesterday for Lauren.  Biopsy, echo, then a visit to the clinic to talk with the dr.  From what they saw everything looks good.  Her pressures where a little high, but they always have been.  After the biopsy, they send it to the lab and check for rejection.  That process takes 24 hours.  So, by the end of the day we will receive a phone call with the news.  Please, say a prayer…no rejection.
