I Am Scared That My Daughter is Dying. She had a baby it will be 3 yrs. on Oct.15 . During the birthing process she experienced an aortic disection which caused a cardio myapathy. She wasn't acting like herself, I thought it was just post partum depression. She went home from the hospital but she wasn't feeling well. When she went back to the hospital a couple of days later for the babies test her husband made her go to the ER. The ER doctor discovered the cardio myapathy but didn't find the Aortic Disection. They kept her in the hospital for a couple of days and got her on some medicines. She went home. The next morning she had a heart attack. The ambulance was just down the street from her home and they were there in a couple of minutes. She lost her functions in her house and they got her in the ambulance. They shocked her back . Upon arrival at the hospital they placed 3 stents in her heart and then her doctor found the Aortic disection. She was rushed to the Indiana Heart Hospital in Indianapolis and they did an emergency triple bypass surgery. Her doctor said that her arteries were tiny like a childs. Last year they gave her a pacemaker because her heart was beating irregular. A couple of weeks ago she went to her doctor & he sent her to a doctor that's going to be taking care of her from now on. He told her that they send patients to him when they already have one foot in the grave. He told her that her heart was at 30% and would never heal. She isn't a canidate for a heart transplant either because she wouldn't survive the surgery. It's a miracle she is here now. Her new doctor started her on new medicine that made her feel really sick. She has lost alot of weight & she is really pale. I am so scared for her. She has two small children, a boy 2-3/4yrs & a 9yr. old daughter. She also has a wonderful husband. I don't know what to do to help her. I'm not in good health either & I have alot of heart pain. I have so much stress built up inside.
