Biopsy update and 4th Annual Hike for Hyde

Hi everyone, you might have thought I forgot about you for the biopsy result but we've been going back and forth with the dr's while they mull over how to handle the biopsy results. It wasn't horrible but it definitely wasn't the best news either - the pathology report showed 'borderline acute rejection'. I know this sounds alot like the first biopsy he had back in August - but that one actually said that it might be the result of a poor sample, and it was…
