She was admitted with the same symptoms as before,  headache, blurred vision in one eye, low blood pressure and now a low heart rate.  The eye doctor on call at the hospital ran some tests and said that her optic disc is swollen and the blood is not circulating like it should.  He also said she had another eye stroke. They are going to do a ct scan on her tonight and some other testing tomorrow. 

I am so worried about her.  She is to young to be having this many problems.   One thing that I am glad of is that Ryan is with his dad until the morning and was not here to see her have the spell. 

Please continue to pray for her.

 

Hugs,

Mommaellen

I hope ... someone has insight to what is happening, or causing all Jenny's difficulties.

Strength, Courage and HOPE for a Cure.

Ryan and I went to see her today and she is not feeling any better.  The doctors did a MRI and a Echocardiogram (due to the low heart rate) on her today and they are doing a special eye test tomorrow.  Hopefully when we get the results of all the tests, the doctors will be able to know what exactly is causing the problems and will be able to fix them.

I will continue to keep everyone updated.

 

Hugs

She had a mini stroke called a TIA and the echocardiogram showed that she has a hole in her heart called a PFO (apparently she was born with this and noone ever knew she had it).  She has some weakness in her right leg and the pt lady will be coming to the house starting monday to work with her.  She will see a heart doctor on wednesday and the hole in her heart will be closed via heart catherization.  The mini stroke was caused by a blood clot passing thru the hole in her heart.  She is on a new med to prevent clotting.

Thank you all once again for your prayers.

 

Hugs

It's not good, but, it is good that they found out what is wrong with Jenny and can repair the hole in her heart.  We all will be praying for her and you Ellen.

BTW when you are inside your mom the blood dirculates through the PFO )patent foramen ovale) it is supposed to close after but sometimes it doesnt, maintaining a hole between the two upper chambers of the heart. (atrium)

I was going to say the same thing Carkris said about Tedy Bruschi.  He should be her inspiration because after a successful procedure he returned to play pro football!  I will pray for Jenny's complete recovery.  I am glad they finally know what is causing her problems and they know how to fix it.

Hugs,

Ginny

Jenny's surgery will be on September 16th to fix the PFO. She will be in the hospital overnight and will be on light duty for about a week.  She is still having weakness in her right leg and the pt and ot people are coming to the house to work with her.  We can notice a little improvement.  We have had dinner brought to us 3 times from the ladies of her church and the will come 3 times next week.  This has been a big help.

 

If anyone woutd like to send her a card, I know that she would love it.  PM me for the address.

 

Thank you again for your continued prayers.

 

Hugs
