Biopsy Results

 Talking to Daddy through her IV. When the nurses came in she would hold up one hand to hold them away, put her IV to her ear and start talking to Daddy (Sad that this is what she knows is "daddy" I know.) Harmonee: "Hi Dad. Yeah. Uh huh. Uh uh. Yeah. Dad. Yeah. Yeah. Uh huh. No. Yeah. Bye Dad"... Daddy was there in spirit!
On Friday Doctor Book called wtih concerning news that Harmonee's liver labs had yet to go done, but up! We were admitted with a full schedule, that night she would have an ultra sound and in the morning a biopsy.

Ultra Sound:
The ultra sound came back not so good. Harmonee's portal vein has a spot of scar tissue that has made the vein narrow, not letting blood go through it easily. This happens with most liver transplants they said. It can make the liver act funny by making it swell. This is fixed by surgery.

The biopsy came back PERFECT! No rejection! YAY! But... there was some swelling found, but only caused by a small cold. The doctors said that her liver must have taken the hit, and then the cold finally hit Harmonee this morning.

Ending Results:
We were sent home today, with everything the same as it was. You cant be to careful with high liver labs. Fortunetly we now know about her portal vein, and will be able to watch it and quickly fix it before it does anything dangerous.

That was our weekend scare. I was a little nervous about it being like last december, but it wasn't and I hope this will be our last hospital stay this winter!
