Sarah has her 2nd follow up appt with the BARC program this coming Monday at 11am. This will include lab work so we are asking you to pray some more of her particular counts come down again this visit. This will show that the liver is continuing to make progress and function normally. BARC is a research effort to see if steroids have any effect upon biliary atresia. Europeans seems to swear by their positive impact but here in the states, there is some question as to to the effectiveness. We are also part of a group of patients who are being monitored to see if doctors can ultimately discover the reason biliary atresia occurs as this remains a mystery.
Additionally, our follow up appt with Dr. Healey was rescheduled for January 8 and we are looking forward to speaking with him.
Thank you for your continued prayers and support.
