Drum Roll...........

The latest and hot off the press news from Meg is..............most likely NOT REJECTION!!!!!!!! JR told her he felt like running the halls after she told us that! Now that is impressive only one week post surgery people! I feel the same and also feel like we just dodged another HUGE bullet! PRAISE GOD!!!!!! We still don't know what she has but she has been put on a very broad antibiotic and it seems to be doing the trick. She just ate for me a few minutes ago and has been clapping and smiling a bit.......forced, but she is doing it. She is a little cranky (so not like the princess!) but who in the world wouldn't be when you are sick! Her fever has also broken! Whew! Her heart rate is still elevated a little but thinking that is due to just not feeling the greatest. Her heart rate never went below 200 in the ER and her fever was as high as 103 and never dipped below 101. YIKES! So, as a precautionary measure in case that she may have the flu and because Lindsay arrived here with a fever, anyone who enters the room MUST have a mask and for those who are going to have contact with her have to be gowned and gloved along with the mask. This is a great new measure that is called the pandemic precaution. It's a pain in the butt but good to know that people won't be walking around passing the germs! She was swabbed at Bronson for influenza and strep. The rapid strep test came back negative but the flu swab will take 24 hours so that means we should know results by early evening. Lindsay did have a pretty nasty stool this morning that they sent a sample down for testing for c-diff again. Most likely she will have it but the confusing part is that her symptoms from last time till now were definitely NOT the same. This time was scary and it had rejection written all over it in our books for sure. Obviously in the minds of the docs here at U of M too because they wouldn't have airlifted her here. All of the blood tests aren't back yet so we just sit and wait for results and maintain trying to keep Lindsay comfortable. Her fever finally broke so that is no longer an issue hopefully. Man, I am shaking while I type..........NOT REJECTION!!! WOOHOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!
With Love from one happy momma and daddy!!! Keep praying!

I am SO relieved and giving thanks that it was not rejection and praying the princess will get over this bug very quickly. What an awful scare!

Oh Lord have mercy! Thank you for you it, once again. I know this road is not a smooth one...you do such a good job, Suzie, of living in the moment..that is just how you should do it. And at this moment, you are taking care of the princess and trusting and praising God, no matter what. I told Tommy tonight about Lindsay and his eyes got SO big with concern...I told him she was hanging in and he was glad to hear that. He also could not believe she took a helicopter ride..'WOW!' he said. Then at prayer time, Genna prayed for Lindsay first and Tommy got kind of mad and said..'HEY!..I was going to say Lindsay!'..of course, I said, 'you can BOTH pray for Lindsay tonight!' and with that we end with a big, huge....AMEN!
Love and Hugs x 100...Colleen
