HIDA Results

The doctor just told us that the gall bladder is working just fine - which means they have completely ruled out biliary artresia! That is good news because artresia meant surgery for sure and at some point in her life most likely a liver transplant. They are still not sure why her bilirubin levels are high, but are going to check her levels again to see where she is at. If the levels have gone up, they will most likely do a liver biopsy on Monday. If the levels have gone down, they will most likely send us home and put her on a few medications to help the level continue to drop. We are feeling pretty positive right now that the level has dropped because Nichole is finally gaining some weight and we think her color is looking better. Pray with us that we will be able to come home soon and that Nichole will be healthy. Thanks for all your prayers and support over this past week!
