The doctors think that Carla might have what they referred to as PRES (Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome). To quote Wikipedia: "PRES occurs due to the use of drugs like tacrolimus and cyclosporine, hence it may occur in people who have undergone an organ transplant, in which these drugs may be used to suppress transplant rejection." In cases of PRES, the back part of the brain swells, causing symptoms similar to what Carla is experiencing. She will go in for an MRI at 5:00 ish to find out if this is indeed what is going on. They suspect PRES because Carla's Tacrolimus levels jumped from 9 to 16 over night and Tacrolimus can also cause trembling, which Carla has been experiencing. Please pray that whatever is going on with Carla, the doctors are able to fix it.
I hate to be like this but I can honestly say, I am so over this! I don't understand why things have to be so hard... that being said. I know people who are facing much harder burdens, so I need to keep myself in check and have faith that this, like everything else, will work out perfectly. Sometimes it is just hard to be patient. We love our little Sweet Pea so much...
Please pray for everything to work out perfectly.
