Working at Buckhead Gymnastics Center, Robyn was overcome by severe chest and shoulder pain, accompanied by nausea. After the symptoms did not subside, Robyn made the decision to go to the hospital. Megan Koleff, took her and her two children to the hospital, where she was triaged after an abnormal EKG. After having her children picked up, in the company of Megan and Jenn Sneed, Robyn suffered a stress-induced heart attack. With the quick action of her friends, knowing something was wrong, doctors and nurses rushed in to revive her.
Tests to this point have included a CT scan, a coronary catheterization, an MRI, and blood work, in an attempt to determine the potential causes of her heart attack. It is suspected that she has a congenital heart condition limited to 5% of people that share her symptoms. The treatment for this condition includes long-term medication and the implantation of a defibrillator, which will shock her heart were it to ever take on an irregular rhythm. She will be unable to work for a month, but can resume 100% activity and lifestyle after her recovery
Friends and family continue to visit with prayers, cards, gifts, and other words of encouragement. Robyn continues to gain strength and feel blessed for the outcome of this trying situation. Although the situation is awful, had she not been surrounded by friends and had she not immediately gone to the hospital, she would not be with us today. Our thoughts continue to be with Robyn as she hopefully recovers quickly.
Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.
