Amberlyn wants me to let everyone know what is going on

Posted on September 29, 2011 by Debbie

Ok Amberlyn wants me to let everyone know what is going on. First and foremost please after you read this....PRAY....second please DO NOT call or text her, just leave her positive encouragement on fb or here. She is checking fb often now. This past tuesday her transplant apptment was not good. We knew something was up when Dr Angel came in and was somber. Normally he comes in smiling and says she looks great and gives her a hug. Tuesday he went straight to the point and you could see concern in his eyes.

So this morning ar 7:30am Amberlyn woke me up crying saying that her head felt like it was going to explode

So this morning ar 7:30am Amberlyn woke me up crying saying that her head felt like it was going to explode. I tried to calm her to see if maybe it was her having an anxiety attack but no it just got worse. You could just see the pain written all across her face. So we loaded up the car and headed to the ER. By the time we got there she was in so much pain that she could not keep her eyes open it hurt so bad. We got her in and the dr immediately put her on iv fluids and gave her some pain meds. He didn't do any lab work which sort of had me scratching my head in bewilderment. Something told me to check Amberlyn's sugar, and I did.....It was 60! Which is low for her. So I made her drink some Apple Juice.

Posted on September 10, 2011 by Debbie

Just a quick update. We got to finally come home! We didn't get home til 1am Thursday due to some complications with delivery guy that was suppose to bring us oxygen. Was so glad that the Apria Austin delivery guy Timothy was so more accommodating than the San Antonio delivery man. So God Bless you Timothy for easing my fears! Amberlyn did her first physical therapy with Jeremy at Kethley Physical Therapy. Jeremy you are another God send. Thank you for ALWAYS taking care of my Amberlyn. I know she is in good hands when you are involved.

Finally got results from last week’s bronch

Posted on September 1, 2011 by Debbie

Sorry not updating sooner, but it wasn't til yesterday that we finally got results from last week’s bronch. The culture grew out another bacteria, so Amberlyn is on yet another antibiotic. Her insulin level has been out of whack and it was a mystery, until last night when Amberlyn snapped that one of the IV antibiotics is mixed with D5 (sugar water, basically)! Amberlyn was able to get up and walk to the cafeteria last night while on oxygen. That is BIG progress!! She was so proud of herself. It was very tiring but she stuck it out. There is some talk, but no guarantee yet, of sending her home maybe this weekend or early next week on IV antibiotics. Understandably she is nervous about it but Dr. Angel said that they aren't just going to make her leave. He wants her to think about it. We are still taking it a day at a time. Keep those prayers coming! Love Mama Fett
