Friday I went to see my cardiologist for my 90 day Echocardiograhm. This was a big appt for me cause it was the first echo I have had since I was hospitalized three months ago. 50 % of women diagnosed with Postpartum Cardiomyopathy completely recover with full heart function in the first few years after diagnosis.
When I was in the hospital I had a EF Ejection fraction of 15%, The average person walks around with an EF between 50% and 65%. When I had my echo I was really hoping for a EF of at least 45% and judging by the amount of energy and lack of swelling I have had lately I was confident in that number. Well the results are in and I have a EF of 60% which means fully recovered!!! I am so happy I could cry, all my measurement were perfect, no swelling, no damage, absolutely perfect. The doctor said you could wright a text book on how perfect my heart looks, Woohoo!!!!
Whats this mean for my future? Well I will be on my medication life long to prevent a relapse but I can let up on the 2000mg sodium diet I have been restricted to. Also it still means no more babies which is still going to take awhile for me to completely except. Overall I am in complete normal health. Of coarse I have to be more careful than the average healthy person but still I am in good shape.
Thank you Jesus for your miraculous healing!
