Biopsy Update:

Sorry for the delay in updates.  Thursday and Friday were busy days.

Bethany did well with her biopsy.  She is still very sore.  This is the first time that she has had a double biopsy.

The biopsy showed that Bethany is experiencing a mild rejection in the left lobe of her liver.  We have started Bethany on iv anti-rejection medication.  Bethany received a dose on Thursday night, Friday, and she just received her final dose a few moments ago.

Bethany’s liver numbers increased dramatically yesterday, but thankfully, today her numbers have begun coming down.  Bethany will be in the hospital until at least Monday.  If her numbers do not continue to come down, Bethany will possibly need another biopsy and a dye test to get a closer look at her bile ducts.

We are all thankful for the great care Bethany continues to receive.  Thank you also for your continued prayers.  Please pray that we can get this episode of rejection under control.  Pray also for no more setbacks in Bethany’s recovery.  Finally, please pray for a good clear understanding of how we need to care for Bethany’s new liver long-term.

Thank you!  Blessings, and Merry Christmas!
Taylor, Angela, Bethany, and Jonathan
