Quick update on Kayleigh really quick and I will update you on Aimee. Kayleigh had another echocardiogram and unfortunately her pulmonary pressures are still elevated. The pressures were around 69 this past Friday and they were 67 today, so they have not come back down and that is concerning. They have taken her off the nitric, so their plan of action is to keep weaning her down on the oxygen as needed and get another Echo soon.
She still have been crabby in the afternoons, but she has been a calm and peaceful as can be with us. I fed her tonight and she took around 20 mls out of 35 for me, so I was happy to see that. She is getting better with her feeds, so that is good to hear. She didn't wine or cry the whole time we were their, so I am guessing she just needs our love. Her weight stayed the same, which is not exciting, but we are still too afraid to start fortifying again. We'll see...
Okay, now to Aimee. Over the past week, Aimee has started to get short of breath, tired quickly and her heart races with the smallest of activity. We didn't think too much about it and then she started getting headaches, which have started to come more frequent. Aimee never got headaches before and has been in good enough shape to not feel so gassed over little activity. We thought maybe it was some kind of side effects to the Mastitis that she was dealing with or the antibiotics that she was taking, but these issues started before she started that medication. We also got a pregnancy test to be sure it wasn't that and that came back negative.
Over Thanksgiving, she showed more signs of fatigue than normal. She would get tired opening a can of corn. We decided we would wait through the weekend, take it easy and if it didn't get any better, we would schedule an appointment with the doctors. Well, over the weekend, Aimee heart has been racing more than ever and she even gets worn out walking down the stairs. Her headaches are still frequent and on top of that, she started to get jaw pain, sporadic nausea and now she has upper abdominal pain. All of them are not very good signs!!!
Aimee and I are the type to research everything. We scared ourselves to death tonight looking up on Web MD to see what type of issues could be causing all these symptoms and one stood out above the rest that we are hoping is definitely not the case. All signs point towards Angina, which is caused by stress and can lead to a Heart Attack, but we hope to God that is not the case.
We have an appointment to see our doctor first thing tomorrow morning and since we are going to the main hospital right afterwards to see Kayleigh, we are hoping they will get her in there to do some tests. When it comes to pain or an illness, Aimee won't complain unless there is something really bugging her and she is really worried right now. Please pray for her and ask God to heal whatever the problem is, and please pray this is no heart issues.
I will post when we get some answers.
Thank you and God Bless,
