REJECTION!

Please keep Kaidence in your prayers. We drove down from the cabin last night to PCMC after we noticed some changes in Kaidence. It looks as though her body is fighting her Beautiful Angel heart. Her heart is in rejection and Kaidence has been admitted to the hospital. I knew it was going to be a bummer visit when they put us in our 'bad luck' ER room and yes, we have certain rooms that bring us good luck. Anyhow, when they came to me and told me her heart was large, it made me sick. This is our reality with transplant. We knew when we went into it that we were trading one basket of problems for another. However, we have been extremely blessed and this is the first time K has been admitted for rejection. I guess deep inside you always hope that your child will somehow be the one that goes rejection free.


They have started her back on heavy duty immunosuppression (so I am back to being a GERM FREAK......ok, not sure I ever stopped that one). But seriously, we will have to be very careful again with who comes into our home for a little while.

The plan for today is to take Kaidence into the cath lab around 11 and biopsy her heart. This will tell us what type of rejection she has (cellular or antibody).....we are hoping for cellular.


We are so grateful for her beautiful heart. We know that it came from a tough little guy that too played hard and lived life to the fullest. We know it is strong and as Kaidence always says "My heart is Happy". And in the end....that is what matters!

Thanks for your prayers, we will keep you posted.
