Warrior Woman admitted to CCU step-down

  1. I know there have been many posts recently about Warrior Woman, but she has had a huge cross to carry in the past few months. I was talking to her at 2am her time and she was suffering from severe chect pain radiating into jaws and upper back. I finally pestered her till she called the EMS and went to the hospital. This situation for me was like ripping open a fresh incision due to lossing my co-worker a couple of months back due to very similar situation and she ended up dying at home alone as the hopsital didn't care emough to look beyond the no insurance factor, and her name was Theresa too. Theresa called me from the ER, and she is even being admiited as we speak, it is 6:30am, Indiana time. I even made her put a doctor on the phone to verify she was there, just checking all bases! They are checking out different things than before so please pray they fineverthing is okay. I hope this all makes since, I have been a d the cause and it can be repaired. I've only known her ashort time but this bond is like blood and I need anyone that believed in the power of prayer to join in and keep praying forher till nervous wreck all night and took Xanax to calm me, boy is it kicking in. Better close, love you all my very dear cyber pals!!!!! Duckie

    I'm glad she's getting the help (and hopefully the rest) she needs. Please keep us posted.

    I wrote this post this morning so early, and after I woke up I wasn't even certain I had made a post or what stupid thing I might have said. So I got on line and read it, didn't make myself sound too stupid. Between talking her into going to the hospital and talking to her from the ER, I was stressing out and took my Xanax to keep me under control but once it starts kicking in, I get a little goofy. She is at St. Charles Hospital in Oregon, Ohio in the step down cardiac unit. I made her let me talk to her doctor just to prove to me that she was in the hospital. Theresa is trying so hard to be the foundation of her family right now and all I could think of was loosing another dear friend named Theresa. So, I'll admit, I nagged and nagged until she agreed to go. She really needs our prayers. She has only one more week of nursing school left and she HAS to be there Monday, so please pray that they get a handle on this real soon and at least find the cause and can work on it without keeping her there past Sunday. I have grown to love her like my sister for there are so many similarities in our past and what we are facing that it feels like devine intervention brought us together. PLEASE PRAY FOR HER, I'm so afraid of loosing her. She has been put thru many trials and tests in her life and each one she has struggled through, getting thru nursing school would be a major victory for her and her family. I know you have seen many posts regarding her lately, please take them seriously. She is not an attention seeker, she has been walking through the fire and only those of us who love her can hold her up high enough to God to help her through all of this. Please keep the prayers and good thoughts coming. Love to you all!!!! Duckie

    My Lord I was afraid of this when she PM'd me, and I wrote her in on uncertain terms was she to stay at home any longer! But I'm glad you persisted Duckie and called her! I should have done the same, and I'm sorry now I didn't! I should have been calling her and pushiing her out the door! I did threaten to send Heather after her! Soo sorry I didn't do more! I'm very sorry I didn't now!((((((((((((((((((Theresa and Duckie))))))))))))))))) You're a great friend Duckie, and God bless for what you did for Theresa...:kiss

    Duckie....thank you for bringing this to our attention. Theresa did email me and tell me she was having chest pains, etc...so I'm not surprised she is finally in the hospital where she should be getting this matter resolved for her. DO give her my love and let her know I'm praying for her. If they keep her in the hospital, let me know her room number so I can send her a card. ((((((((((hugs to you both))))))))) What a special person you are, Duckie. Glad she has you close by. :kiss

    Duckie, I am so sorry to hear this. Theresa called me last night at about ten and left a message on my machine. I got home about midnight, and something told me I should call her then, but I didn't want to wake her if she was resting. I thought I would call her today. Please give her my love, and tell her I will be thinking about her today.

    Let's worry about her heart first, and nursing school second. Nursing school is so ridiculously strict sometimes. Maybe she can makeup any daytime classes/clinicals she missed in an evening class or two.

    Thankfully Duckie you convinced her to get the help she needed. I don't want her to risk leaving before she is 100%. She is too young to have good collateral circulation yet, so MI in one her age is serious. I remember your post about your co-worker, and I know you would have never forgiven yourself if you hadn't convinced her to get treatment.

    I will keep her and her family in my thoughts and prayers.

    Great example of our allnurses family helping one another! Nurses are notorious for denial of symptoms (just like many in the medical profession). Kuduos to you for your perseverence.

    Sending hugs to both today!
