Cheyenne is 29 weeks pregnant. Last week she started to have some pain in her stomach, she went to the Dr. and he thought it was a kidney stone and he sent her to American Fork Hospital to get an ultra sound. They said they could not find any, and that she had a kidney infection and UTI, they gave her some meds, nurses treated her horrible and sent her home.
Sunday comes around and she was not getting any better, in fact she was is horrendous pain. Her fiancé, Josh brought her to the Timpanogos Hospital on Sunday afternoon. When she got there, her oxygen level was a 34…..YES that is right, not a typo…. I said 34! (For those who don’t know, normal is 90-100, hospitalization usually happens below 90). Her blood pressure was 104 over 40. She IS one sick girl. They took her in and they found a 4 cm. kidney stone. The other hospital missed it!!!!!
They took her in immediately to do emergency surgery, to put a stint in. She was too sick to remove the kidney stone, it would have killed her to have it removed at that point. She has been on a ventilator since she went in on Sunday. She then contracted double pneumonia, and her body has turned Septic. (This means the infection has gotten into her blood).
They are doing everything they can for her. She is stable and slowly getting better. She is mostly breathing on her own, but they will not remove the ventilator until her lungs have healed. Cheyenne and her unborn baby boy (Tyler), have a long healing road ahead of them. Josh has been by her side the whole way and is great support, along with her Mom and other family and friends.
The baby is being monitored, but still may have to be born early. (She is only 29 weeks as of 6/7/2017)
Cheyenne and Josh are just starting out, and the bills will start rolling in soon. Please donate and help them. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
