ALL FINISHED!

Kaidence is finished. Everything looked great except for the LPA. It is not narrowing , but kinked instead. It is most likely because of how her heart is sitting in her chest. We will be back on Monday for a CT or MRI and that will tell us how much blood is getting through to her left lung. It is obvious that the LPA is much smaller than the RPA. In fact, it is about half the size. However, everything still looks as though it was caught early enough to fix.

I have not spoken with transplant team yet, but Dr. Gray said that besides the kink in the LPA that her heart looked PERFECT! Not a day goes by that I am not amazed by the journey that we have had and that somebody gave us this amazing chance at life. It is amazing to see pictures of this heart that beats within my daughter. When they transplanted Kaidence, they hooked up her new heart and it started beating on its own without needing to be shocked or anything. I truly believe that is at home within Kaidence for this time.

We will keep you posted on the biopsy results and all the other many numbers that they look for. Thank You for your prayers. We are so grateful for such an amazing support group.
