Roller coaster ride continues


We are Fairview University Hospital with Maria. She was admitted by her doctor after we went in to see him today (a non-routine visit). We went because she has been really low on energy , having chest pains and not feeling well the last couple of days. The Doc took a look at a couple numbers and decided to put her in the hospital so that specific IV meds could be administered that would boost her heart’s pumping functioning and ‘jump start’ her energy levels. She is expected to stay 2-4 days, depending on how she responds and then weens off of it. The good news in all this is that it temporarily bumps her up on the transplant list (while she is in the hospital for heart related issues).

We are in 419-2 on level 6C.  No calls tonight please- its been a long day; she’ll be up for some tomorrow. More updates as warrented.


About marialegatt

I am a 33 year old girl (I say girl because I act and look young all the time) who has had heart disease her whole life. In the last few years I have had severe congestive heart failure and in August of this year recieved a heart transplant. This is my journey to be girl/woman who I could never have been before. I plan to set outstanding goals and achievements and hope people support me along the way good or bad.
