Whats up with Jesse???
They just need to start ruling things out. On Friday she will she her cardiologist for a heart echo. Last month they stopped her heart medication, because the echo revealed a normal heart. But the symptoms of heart failure is nausea and fatigue, so that is the first thing we will try to rule out. She also gave her a medication for her intestinal track, in case this is the cause. Her labs show very high liver enzymes etc..., so we will go back in two weeks for more blood work. I can imagine if they are higher a liver biopsy will be in order. We just cant rule out liver failure because of all the iron built up in there. They have also increased her exjade to try and get the iron out faster. The lump in her neck appears to be lymph nodes, soooo another blood test to check her thyroid. Poor Jesse, just one thing after another.
On a positive note, we are thankful for Micah. He brings a smile to her face and she looks forward to seeing him everyday.
