As Sarah's Liver (and meds) Turns

Good morning,

We just received a call from Marsha in transplant clinic that Sarah's labs from last night showed high numbers in both the AST and ALT. I won't bore you with the medical names and definitions but those are two of the important liver labs Children's follows at each visit. It may be due to the fact that we reduced her tacrolimus at the last clinic and we are seeing the effects. If you review our last blog entry regarding clinic, you will see what I am talking about. 

Ok, just got off the phone with Marsha myself and we have to go TODAY for an ultrasound and biopsy. Please be praying this isn't an acute rejection and that we won't have to stay more than one night (the minimum required). Our family is still struggling getting things back to normal and this won't do the other kids any good.
