bless her heart

 

Dear Friends,

Our lovely daughter Hadley suddenly became ill on Tuesday.  She goes to school six hours from home and what I was “hoping” would be a virus and dehydration quickly turned into something scary.  Over the phone we heard words like pulmonary embolism and cardiologist.  She had no fever or signs of infection but had fainted twice and her heart was beating 150+ beats per minute.  She hadn’t been ill nor is she the type to drink or take drugs.     Needless to say we drove the longest six hour drive in the history of the world.  She has had great care and careful observation.  They still aren’t sure what caused it, she is doing better but still has a racing heart and no energy.  I think hugging her these last couple days have been the best hugs I have ever felt. 

It’ll be a while before I post again but I’m certain to check into some of your blogs for that inspirational comfort blog reading gives me.

Take care,

Kate

PS  Thank you Matt…for taking care of Hadley until we arrived.  I will never forget your kindness!

Praying for you and your family. Nothing upsets a mom more as when her babies, even when they are older become ill. Take care and we will all be thinking of you.

I can not imagine how scary it must be and to have 6 whole hours between hearing something is wrong and getting to see her! I hope she is ok and that they find out what caused such a thing!!! Thinking of you and your family.

Dear, dear Kate - so glad your girl is on the mend. Your post was so scary. I'm so glad it all worked out, and I hope she is better every day. Hugs, Robin
