One of Ana’s tests came back as positive for the RSV virus which is basically a cold virus which can be dangerous for babies. It’s not as dangerous for older kids and in adults it’s pretty much just a cold. The hepatologist called and said it puts Ana at greater risk for respiratory complications, but this is an excellent liver and she does not think an offer like this will come again soon.
Jim and I feel the benefits out weigh the risks since continuing to wait also puts her at risk. We are going to check her temperature again at 3:30 and that may be the deciding factor if the transplant happens… or not. Her temp was 100.9 when we checked about a half hour ago.
