Ok, short history on whats going on...
** Subscribe to my blog for updates ***
This past 18months, I have been feeling icky... having heart racing, tingling in my chest, shortness of breath, overly tired, pains in my heart.... I have been going to my family Dr many times even hospitalized for this for 4 days and my Dr told me they were panic attacks.... well I began to believe him and even went to a shrink for them.... well................ I finally went to another Dr, then to a Cardiologist and they ran a bunch of new tests and found 2 holes in my heart...... well they thought they could fix it in the cardio cath lab, so I went in the hospital and they went in to see if they could fix it and well.... NO they couldnt , it was too large and too close to my aorta. So............. now I will be going into Baylor Dallas and having full open heart surgery on April 18th.
I am so scared. I am a devout Christian. I live for God. I have a family, 7 kids and a great life and Im only 36 yrs old..... Im scared... scared of what tehy will be doing since they had to explain it all to me, scared of all the pain, scared of being in the ICU..... just overwhelming..... I have been praying for peace, comfort and guidience.... Please, pray for me.... I need peace aand strength through all this....
Thanks so much, I will be updating my blog before and after the surgery, I will be posting photos and hopefully get support on here and maybe help others that may be going through this or any illness.
Thanks all.... everyone on here is amazing!
