NEW doctor, NEW plan!

Ok, so... I'm on night 4 in the hospital and i've lost my sense of humor. I'll give a run-down of whats up.

I passed out walking down the hall Sunday. I was home alone with both boys, Adam had run to the store. When he walked back in, him pushing on the door must've brought me "too". The boys were laying on top of me. He put me on the bed and got me dressed and on we went to the ER.

I went straight back b/c of my heart stuff. They checked cardiac enzymes, etc. I had had a migraine all day I couldn't kick. They decided to do a head CT. They started an IV and gave me morphine for chest/head pain. 5 hours later they said it was to risky to let me leave, they admitted me.

Monday, they watched me, did EKGs, and ran labs. Tuesday we did an echo, EKG's, a pulmonary function test and more labs. Today we've done EKG's, labs and called in a new doc!

My EP actually said yesterday that he thought I passed out b/c I have a UTI. Seriously, we were all ticked. We called in a new Cardio today who I really liked. First thing tomorrow I will get up and do a stress scho. My heart got up to 150 today (and I am sedentary in here, let me tell you). So, he wants to see what it does with activity. He said he is going to be in there to watch me. My BP is staying low (too low actually) at 95/59. I'm already on the highest doses they make of 2 heart meds, so we are kinda at the end of the rope with medication therapy.
Our new plan is extensive and several tests may be repeated. I have been under so much radiation this year, I think my insides are fried. I've had my blood taken so many times, I honestly cannot even feel them stick me.

Please say a prayer for our family. The boys are really having a hard time with this. Parker slept on the couch last night b/c he couldn't sleep, not even in Mom's bed! Last night when he left the hospital he held my hand and said "go with me, mommy". Talk about breaking my heart. Mr Logen adapts to change like no other. He is very happy to see me when he comes to visit and has the biggest smile ever. It's the bestest!

  1. Awww, Jess! You're just too young for all this! I hope they figure things out soon and you can get back home to your adorable boys!

  2. I know Sheila. Seriously about to go nuts here! :p I miss my boys so much!

  3. I was thinking exactly what Sheila said, you are too young for this. Poor Parker, that makes me so sad. Good luck tomorrow.

  4. My fave was when Parker watched you get your blood drawn and he said 'it's ok mommy" so supportive like. =)
