My sister, Tara, sent this email to some of her friends and family. I share it with you all in the hopes that you might offer a prayer on her behalf.
It seems somewhat selfish to send this out for myself, but I really need some guidance and prayers right now……..
Thursday evening it happened again and I spent 24 hours in the ER and PCU with my heart. This is highly unusual for a 40 something female – so they tell me.
This is the 3rd time in 3 years for this to happen to me. One minute all is well, the next my heart is A-Fibing, out of rythym at 180 bpm.
The Drs say they really don’t know what causes this is younger folks. My electrolytes were very low – so that could be the cause, but nobody can tell me what I have done to make them low… or what to do to prevent it from happening again. Even the cardiologist didn’t know the reason for this to happen. She wasn’t sure if my recent infections and steroid injections could have caused the problem or not….only instructed me to avoid steroid shots in the future.
This experience is very frightening for me. Would you please pray for me and our family? There has to be answers and solutions for this medical problem.
Blessings to all
