Julie was experiencing pain in her chest and her jaw for 2 days on and off. At first, she thought it could be indigestion or heartburn. Best case, her medication possibly needed to be changed. Luckily, she knew her body was just not right and decided the ER was a safe decision and went.
Julie was quickly transferred by ambulance to CMC Pineville to the cardiac department. Once at the cardiac department she was informed her enzymes were low, had blockages and worst of all, had a heart attack. Reminding you, she ONLY 40 years old.
Two months prior, Julie had successful Carpel Tunnel surgery and was looking forward to returning to work as her disability time was completely exhausted. Then her world fell apart.
In viewing pictures of what her heart look liked prior to surgery, it was indicated that in less than two months without the help from the wonderful doctors in the cardiac department, We would have lost her. She would have died.
There will be 3 or more months of cardia rehab, dietary counseling and life style changes in many ways.
With previously being on disability for the last two months, Julie was at 66% of pay, there is no long-term disability, and it is a long road which she will have to endure. Not having to stress over medical bills, as well as just the usual, everyday bills would go a long way to aid her recovery. Savings has been depleted. Funds are getting urgent at this time since Nick was injured at work and is currently unable to work and is limited as to what he can do around the house. He is waiting on approval to get surgery on the neck which is also extremely stressful.
Thank you for your support for our daughter and her family.
