    Heart Disease

    Andrew and I met in September 28th of 2017 we moved in with each other immediately we knew each other for 2 days and were immediately in love we  were. About 4 years into our relationship I started experiencing shortness of breath and the inability to go up-and-down the stairs. I've passed it off as maybe I was just being lazy, so I tried to be more active. Then it became to where I started having to pain in my jaw and started having cold sweats. We went to the doctor and come to find out i have pulmonary hypertension with congestive heart failure and right sided heart failure. They gave me 6 months or less to live. I went to a cardiologist at Oklahoma Heart institute, where they said nothing wrong with me, and it may be sleep apnea! 

    I went another year with the same symptoms, but this time ad 2 heart attacks and 2 strokes until I could not work anymore.  Moving forward, I became very discouraged because I had to quit my job, and embarrassed I couldn't walk anywhere. I couldn't even vacuum my living room, my quality of life was really bad when Andy insisted I go to the doctor and have them take another look. It was when I went to the ER that a doctor suggested I go to a cardiologist to have them run tests. There is where they told me they believed I have pulmonary hypertension. After extensive tests, they sent me to a Dr. King Grey in Oklahoma City Baptist. He was the one to give me the good news on January 24th that I had my last heart attack! And to think it was less than 3 month prior that the ER doctor told me I had less than 90 days to live!

    I was able to get into the specialist within a couple weeks and gave me a new medication culture vessel, that is amazing! I can now make it up-and-down my stairs, without feeling the side effects. My boyfriend was the sole provider in our household, but on March 5th he was in a work accident that took his life. I have fallen into depression and I am not able to pay my bills. I was forced to quit my job, and not prepared for him to die. I have no family now that he is gone and am a financial burden on his parents. Now with the funeral costs - funds are very limited. This is my last hope. Please, in Andy's name, please help. Thank you for taking the time to read my story. Love, Melissa
