    First let me say that this thread is temporary. Erin said if something big came up that I was free to post, but there is a yahoo group set up, so we can use that for the little stuff.

    But this is big. Aiden is in the hospital. He is in rejection of his new liver. (liver numbers are now in the 900's.. supposed to be in the 20's!! It is about 9X worse than it was BEFORE transplant) This is bad news, and can be dangerous, but what I am about to say is much worse. Today another test came back that pointed to the CMV in the liver. CMV hepatitis. This is very serious. Rejection is bad, but it only threatens the life of the liver, this infection is so serious, it is now threatening the life of my son.

    PLease please pray. I know not everyone is on the yahoo group or his email list, so had to tell you guys. Aiden is on massive doses of prednisone (solumedrol) and it is making him nuts. Other than that you would have no idea he is so ill. On paper he is very sick.

    I am beig very positive, but they have not seen a case in the liver in a long time. If it gets to that point, and it is everywhere then we will need to really begin to pray.

    Thank you, We will be getting some stains and cultures back tomarrow and friday. I will let you know what happens.

    Please email me, I can help you get set up a the yahoo group. RolexH@aol.com Thanks so much.

    praying and jingling harder than ever....

    I'm on the e-mail list but don't know how to do the Yahoo group...perhaps someone could send out the instructions to the whole e-mail list?

    Lisa, Joey, & Aiden will stay in my thoughts and prayers.

    Lisa - we are all here for you and praying for Aiden. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, though it may be dim right now, Aiden keeps pulling himself towards it and a strong, long life.

    I will check the Aiden thread, Lisa...and thanks for taking a moment to reply to me. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    Aiden WILL pull through this bump in the road! He's probably the only patient on the planet with so many prayers, jingles, and good, healing thoughts coming to him!

    I'll also light a candle at my church tonight...I've been remiss in getting there lately anyway, Aiden is reason enough. {{{{Hugs}}}}

    The first words out of my mouth were an expletive but then I thought, his life has been so miraculous to date, surely, it can only continue.

    May this be just another small bump on that long road to a complete recovery.

    Hugs to you and the Beloved One.

    I posted instructions on how to join the Yahoo group on the Aiden party thread. Hopefully those will help you come join us.

    I am jingling and praying just as hard as I can....

    Oh Lisa. I don't know what to say ......

    Praying and jingling. It has worked before, it will work again.
