Well we got to San Antonio around 9pm Saturday

Posted on October 31, 2011 by Debbie

Well we got to San Antonio around 9pm Saturday. It was a very bumpy stressful ride for Amberlyn. She said it felt like they hit every bump in the road which made her head and back hurt even more. By the time she got to the transplant hospital she was in quite a bit of pain. The on call internal med doctors came to evaluate her and they told us the plan for the night.

Amberlyn is going to be transferred to San Antonio transplant hospital

Posted on October 29, 2011 by Debbie

Amberlyn is going to be transferred to San Antonio transplant hospital. Xray showed something going on with her lungs and the doctor here feels that it would be best that she go to the transplant hospital. They don't really deal with lung transplant patients here. So we are waiting for them to get a room there for her to go to and then the ambulance to transport her there. I will update when I can. Please keep her in your prayers. ~Mama Fett~

Please say prayers for Amberlyn

Posted on October 28, 2011 by Debbie

Please say prayers for Amberlyn. She is having really bad headaches again and her heart rate is elevated. She is trying to get off the pain meds cuz the doctors have said that the pain meds are causing "rebound headaches". She has developed a cough so I am going to ask the doctor to do a chest xray to make sure that we aren't dealing with something in the lungs as well. We both feel discouraged today. :(

Friday morning she went for an xray and came back all red in the face, it was swollen and her blood pressure/heart rate was sky high! The nurse called the doctor, he came to look at her and he immediately said get her to ICU stat!

I decided to take her to the ER here close to home. I only did that cuz I did not know if I would be able to get her to San Antonio without complications.

Amberlyn is now out of ICU and in a normal room

Posted on October 6, 2011 by Debbie

Ok well I know it has been a couple of days since I have updated. A lot has happened in those couple of days. First let me tell you that Amberlyn is now out of ICU and in a normal room in transplant tele! Thank you Lord. She did have her second veino gram on Tuesday. The doctors wanted to a) take her port out, b) put stents in her veins to open them up and c) replace the port. But to much of their amazement they were able to use a balloon to open her veins. They were very happy to do that instead of having to use the stents.
