Just as I was going to start the story......

I started not feeling so well. Not sick, really.....Just not well... A little nauseous, itchy, head aches, fatigue like before, loss of appetite.... I was peeing alot but worried about my liver and what the blood work would show on Friday. When I came in for my appt.......Good news first? My creatine....(kidney function #'s) were MUCH better! from an all time high of 6 something to 2.7 last week to 1.6 last friday.... .8-1.2 is normal..... BUT,

my ALT and AST had tripled since last week. Not a good sign. The wonderful Dr's held a pow wow and decided that I needed to stay and run some tests to find out exactly what was going on.

So far I have had an ultrasound of my liver to look at the arteries, portal veins, etc. and they are clear.... They have run all kinds of blood cultures, urinalysis, and stool. Today they did a biopsy of my liver. We will know the results tomorrow and I am having some kind of MRI type scan to look at my bilinary duct.

These are what the Dr's are looking for:

1. rejection.....see below

2. an infection

3. bile duct constriction

So, I wait...... We will know more tomorrow......
