I want to thank you all so much for the prayers and kindness that you have continually shown towards my family…You just don’t know how good it made me feel to know that you were all praying for Amanda and the little one.
Now for the good news….Amanda is home! While the blood test still reveal high troponin levels which indicate heart attack, the cardiologist is thinking it is Pericarditis ( an inflammation of the sack around the heart) which can also raise troponin levels. They have been treating her with ibuprofen for inflammation and the troponin levels finally started coming down a tiny bit.
They have done EKG’s, X-rays, Echo cardiograms, and numerous blood work…and all came back good, except the blood work. Her OBGYN has been in to see her daily, along with the cardiologist. They had her do a stress test yesterday and it turned out good, so the cardiologist let her come home. She has to go back to the OBGYN Thursday for a follow up. She is still having shortness of breath and chest/shoulder/arm pain when she gets up and moves around, so they want to keep a close eye on her.
Wyatt got to come home yesterday too!!! He had been staying with his other grandma the whole time that Amanda has been in the hospital. God bless her heart for being there for him and taking care of him the whole time while his mommy was so sick. You should have seen him when he got home….He was so happy to be in his own home with all his little toys and best of all; his mama!!!
When he finally tired of playing, Wyatt just went and plopped down on Uncle Dan's legs!
I was up at the hospital by 7:30 am, and after the stress tests results came in, they told Amanda that she could go home. A little later, I faked being sleepy and told her I was going to go ahead home and take a nap while she and Kelvin waited on the paper work and such.
Well, I rushed home and went directly to her house. Dan came on up and he and I did laundry and cleaned the whole house from top to bottom and had it shining and ready for her when she got home! I also got a guy up there to cut the grass! So they didn’t have to do anything when they got home except love on their little Wyatt!
I hope and pray that it is the Pericarditis only, and no heart damage…and that she will get better each passing day….
You know, during the time I was with her and seeing her go through all this…all I could think of was how she was doing like Danny did during his final months …and I was so scared…
And to tell you the truth …
I am still scared.
But I must trust in God …..
Who has always been there with me through all the good times….
And the bad….
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
