A Very Brief Update

Sarah's EBV level has decreased to 95 according to her last lab results. Patty will take her again Sunday so we can know by Tuesday night if they have truly reached the "negative" level. In the meantime, the docs had originally prescribed her valcyte to help ward off the EBV but since that is now so low they have taken her off that med. She is still not taking tacrolimus so basically there is nothing external to fight the viral stuff or rejection.

I have to admit I'm a bit hesitant to not have Sarah on SOMETHING but according to Dr. Reyes, this is the best avenue to take until they can verify the EBV has been eliminated. They would then place her back on tac next week.

Your prayers for Sarah's health to not be compromised further during this short stretch would be appreciated. She seems to be feeling better but continues to cough intermittently.
