Meeting the Trouble Maker

They let Harmonee have bananas today! FINALLY! At first she didn't know how to eat them. After she got the hang of them I had to pace her! At first she started to dry heave, so we had to take a few breaks!

We finally got to see Harmonee's Liver today! The liver that has given her so much trouble the past few months, before deciding to send it on to bigger, and better purposes, and inheriting her new guardian angels liver.

Healthy Liver
 BA Liver
 That is the bowel from her Kasai
The white is the scar tissue and the Green is backed up Bile
The "tree" inside of her liver
Extra growth tissue from where her liver tried to make more tissue to help itself drain the bile.
This is the chunk of liver that was taken for studying

It was interesting to see her old liver. It finished the puzzle of her illness, by connecting the dots to show the cause of it all. I can now understand WHY she was so sick.


  1. Wow. That's amazing. I'm glad your little girl is doing so much better! I wish you all the best :)

  2. That is so crazy!! Im glad that thing is finally out of her!! I love seeing her happy again! Go Harmonee Go!!! :)

  3. Bananas,wow!She´s starting to finally have good quality of LIFE!

    Baby steps.

    with love,

    Alice (Martim´s mum)

  4. Farrah, i'm not gonna lie, thats really sick, but then again i'm so glad she's doing so much better and has a healthy one today! i hope you are doing well!

  5. Wow! That old liver was awful. What a blessing she has finally been given a new start... hopefully her bad liver will give the scientists just a little more insight about this condition so that they can develop even more ways to treat conditions like hers!!
