Sorry y’all, but this is the only picture I could readily find of Momma. About a month ago my mother almost died on a Monday. I did not know how grave it was, but my dad did. He has worked in cardiology for almost 40 years. I had no idea how complicated the heart is! Our God is truly a genius!!!
I recognized signs of heart failure and asked my father if she was in it. He said yes, but the prognosis was good. He talked to her doctor and he told him he wanted to see her ASAP! I went with them and he immediately put her in the hospital. My dad was afraid to tell me we could lose her that day because he said he didn’t know how I would react.
She had very little ejection fraction, which is not good. It had been 13 per cent and now it is at 40 per cent, her blood work that shows heart failure (BNP, which measures fluid around the heart) was coming back in the 1200s and the week before it was 180 (it is supposed to me less than 200) yesterday it was down to 400 (last time it was 600), the wall of her ventricle was enlarged and now it is shrinking, which is wonderful! Her BMP, which measures electrolytes, potassium IS NORMAL!!! Thank you, Jesus!!!! Her doctor, who gave her no hope, said, “I am encouraged!” We are witnessing a miracle before our very eyes!!!! GLORY TO GOD!!!
I want to thank my precious blogging family for praying for us and all the words of encouragement! You do not know how I cherish EACH AND EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU!! Praise God, He is faithful to His Word and it does not return void, but accomplishes all that it is set forth to do!! I want to extend a special thanks (and I have now begun to have tears) to Patty, Patricia, Lyn, Ken, and Wayne! Oh, what would I have done without your words of encouragement and support?? Thank you all again! May God’s richest blessings be multiplied to you!!!
