One Sick Girl
The bile duct study showed her bile ducts are constricted. This occurs when there is a lack of blood supply to the liver and the doctors do not know when this could have occurred, during transplant or after transplant. Also her kidneys are not producing urine. Doctors believe this "kidney injury" is a result of iv contrast in some of the liver testing last week and high levels of one of the immunosuppressants; the injury is recoverable in time. She was moved to ICU this morning where they intubated her to protect her airways. The plan for the weekend is to get her stablized: kidneys working and staying infection free. The liver team is working on a treatment plan. Our hope is in the Lord (Psalm 131), God is our refuge (Psalm 90:1), nothing is impossible for God (Luke 1:37), God began and will complete His good work (Phillipians 1:6), and Kerry's verse Jeremiah 29:11 KJV "I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope".
