Gabriella's rejection is graded at a 2r, moderate rejection. I for sure thought it would be less than that! What sets it apart from the rejection she went through last June is that this time around, there is no function decline. The pressures and pump of her heart is normal and strong, so it is only at a cellular level for right now. Since her function is good, they are treating the rejection with high dose steroids at home and we will go in weekly for ECHO's to watch her function. If there is any loss, of course, we will have to pursue a more aggressive means of treatment, but until then we can go about life normally and pray the medications work!
Thank you to everyone for reaching out Friday when we got this news! It was so unexpected and I am so blessed to have you all still ready to rally around Gabriella!!
