Slight setback

We did not receive the news we hoped for from the biopsy. It appears that Joe's immune system is in mild to moderate rejection of the kidney. To combat this Joe is going back into Baylor for a week or so and will be receiving a new drug intravenously through a picc line and they will continue to monitor things as well as alter some of his meds. Time to fight and continue to pray for wisdom for the doctors as well as acceptance in his body of the drugs and the kidney! He is in Baylor Roberts room 1409. Thank you all for your support, thoughts and prayers!
