May 23, 2009

May 23, 3009-Jacob’s mom had a heart attack yesterday. By far one of the scariest moments of my life. I was here with Alexia, getting ready to go to the dr. She had just started to wake up and fuss so I needed to change and feed her, but my hands were shaking so bad that I couldn’t hardly do anything. I kept trying to get ahold of my mom because she was picking me up to take me to the dr. I decided to let mom take Lexi out to her house and I would go to the hospital with Jacob. I’m so proud of Jacob for staying so calm and so strong throughout the whole thing. I guess Tanner wasn’t handling it very well, so Jacob had to be strong for him also. When we got to the hospital we found out that she wasn’t stable enough in the ambulance so they called life flight. The helicopter flip-flopped back and forth with which hospital they were going to go to, and finally decided on Hillcrest. By the time they got here there she had enough medication to stabilize her. We were able to go back and talk to her. She was convinced she was fine and could go home. They admitted her to the heart hospital and told her she had a mild heart attack and they needed to find out the reasons. There is definitely an electrical reason, but they are doing more tests to determine if there is also blockage. Mom, Dad, Lisa, and Kristin kept Lexi last night…and apparently she slept pretty well for them! Of course, she’s just out to get me! I decided since we would probably be just sitting at the hospital all day that I would stay home so when they were ready they can bring Lexi home. So, Jacob headed up to the hospital. Sheila will be at the hospital at least until Tuesday, probably even towards the end of next week. On Tuesday they are going to do the heart catheterization and test for blockages. That will determine if they have to put stents or anything in. The doctors made it sound like everything is a pretty easy fix. That it was a pretty mild heart attack, and she should be back to normal pretty quick. Thank goodness! We need to spend some time away from hospitals!
