One Year!!!

Joseph has crossed the one year milestone. This is very important because transplant patients have the highest chance of rejection during the first year. On Friday he had his annual biopsy and things looked great with no rejection. What a marvelous journey this has been. Joseph has gone from being very sick, to feeling good and being hopeful that things would continue to be good, to truly knowing that he feels good and doesn't have to worry about his heart getting sick again. In December, Joseph began eating a lot more food at each meal and throughout the day. This is a sign we have been waiting for. Now he is hoping to see signs of growth - he hopes to one day cross the 5 foot mark. Last week, Joseph started a PE class at school. This is going to be great for him. On Thursday he was exhausted from all that he did in PE but he loves having no restrictions. I am looking forward to seeing some muscle mass on his scrawny body. It is great to have him doing so well!!
