And the verdict is.....

No Rejection!!! The biopsy went very smoothly they were done in only an hour and a half. I was hunkered down with my Rolos and Dr. Pepper when we got the page. Dr. Cowley said that everything looked beautiful, even his coronary arteries....Love it!! Daxton had a hard time coming off of the anesthesia he didn't want me to look at him, sing to him or even talk. If I did he would immediately start screaming and then his oxygen would go down in the 60's which made the nurse nervous. Poor guy. We took him on his first ever wagon ride in the hospital which he liked for a little bit but soon became irritated at that also. Once we got home he was all better. There really is no place like home. We received the call tonight saying that there was no rejection and that the results were "perfect", that is what I like to hear. We feel so blessed tonight and are feeling very humbled by the miracles that we have witnessed. Our thoughts have been with our donor family, we are eternally grateful for their selfless act of service that they gave to our son. My heart aches for them this night. To them I say Thank you with all my heart for giving my son a chance at life. We love you and pray for your peace and joy.

Two options

Tomorrow is the day. It will be 2 years minus one day since Daxton recieved his beautiful angel heart and he is having his fifth biopsy tomorrow morning at 6 am. After being rescheduled last week it has given me some time to ponder on a few things. I had been super stressed and worried about this biopsy and was very overwhelmed. Last week at church during testimony meeting a women stood up and said that we have two options in life, we can live by fear or by faith. This hit me like a ton of bricks. I realized that I was letting fear take over my life and I was not liking the outcome of that decision. So this week I have been looking toward this biopsy with faith. I have remembered where we have been and how far we have come with faith as our guide. One of my favorite scriptures is; "For mine is not the spirit of fear, but of Power and of Love and of a sound mind." This scripture has been a comfort to me in many aspects of my life and has helped me this past week. I am so so grateful for this new perspective and know that tomorrow will be just fine no matter the outcome. We have amazing doctors and nurses looking after our little man and more importantly our Heavenly Father and Savior. Thanks for the prayers, please say a few more for Daxton tomorrow.

The day before Daxton's two year biopsy

Tomorrow we will head up to Primary Childrens Hospital for Daxton to have his 5th heart biopsy. We are coming up on his 2 year transplant anniversary on Sept 10th. It has been a year since his last biopsy and I have been a nervous wreck this week. We have not been to clinic for two months, which is good but it makes me nervous to have not seen his beautiful angel heart for while. So we will go with high hopes for a fabulous "0", for NO rejection. Please say a little prayer for him tonight.
