Jamie's Heart Transplant Journey

Hello,     My name is Jamie Bobbitt. I am 27 years young and fighting the battle of my life. I am the mother of the most amazing 20 month old daughter (Kenna Claire) and the wife of an incredible man (Michael Bobbitt). My story starts on our honeymoon (August 2020) when I was hospitalized and the doctors found a major heart issue. Every doctor that I have seen since has been in agreement that the issues with my heart were most likely pre-existing. The suspicion is the heart damage was caused postpartum but went unnoticed until the functionality plummeted very shortly after getting married. I went through a left and right heart catheterization in the beginning of October. It showed my heart is operating at about 15%. I was on monitors for several days with the catheter in place so that medications could be introduced and adjusted according to my needs. I was able to return home with an IV and a life vest in hopes that my heart will get stronger over time. While we were hopeful that the medication will be enough for a long time, the doctors say that a transplant is inevitable. Unfortunately in October I was admitted to the CCU at Emory for the remainder of my wait. In the time of COVID this means I am isolated from my family until after surgery. Right now it's just a matter of coping and being extremely careful until the time comes where I am matched with a new heart. During this time of waiting, however, the hospital bills are coming in along with having to buy new medications almost weekly. We are starting this fund raiser in hopes of having something set to the side so that finances will not be a reason to deny me a new heart. I'm not typically the person who asks for help even when I really need it. Right now my only goal is to keep up with my little girl and just focus on being her momma. In order to do that I need to ask for help. If you are not able to help financially please send up all the prayers and good vibes possible! You have no idea how much we appreciate the support that both me and my family have received during this time. It really makes us feel great to know that we have a tribe out there rooting for us!  ❤️
