General Today Stuff:

Today I was supposed to go get some routine labs done per my cardiologist.  Blah blah, they are wanting to monitor my potassium levels.  I left to take my son to school this morning and just could not find the strength to even drive to the lab to get the labs done.  I'm having a difficult time of the month this month in that I am bleeding very heavy.  I couldn't imagine losing another vile of blood this morning making my situation even worse. My night was terrible in that I tossed and turned the entire night.  As many know I am not a fan of ANY medications as I know they are supposed to solve one issue while creating many other issues.  I am a complete whimp when it comes to feeling any additional side effects or "effects" as Dr. Lonnie Herman says.

For about the first 4 hours of the day it just seemed impossible to survive.  I felt as if every nutrient, vitamin and mineral had been sucked from my body. I kept saying the entire morning: "I wish I could just get down to Florida sooner and see Dr. Herman.".  I truly believe that my problems are not related to mold any longer and that during the last 4 years of mold detoxing and physical discovery my immune system was so weakened from such a severe mold poisoning that many things were either damaged or came to life as a result.

My Mom and sister are coming today after lunch to see the kids and maybe lend a hand for dinner then head back home.  I am truly looking forward to my adventure with Dr. Herman.  I can't stress enough how I feel that this knowledge I am about to recieve will give me the strength and courage to heal from within.

As hard as this struggle is for me, I know now that I need to keep writing and keep on telling my story.  I need to take these daily pictures and hope that one day others can benefit from my experience.

How I feel in general and what were all of my symptoms:

I woke up feeling very lightheaded this morning.  It seems like the medication I'm on for these supposed and I seriously say "supposed" atrial fibrilation issues is tearing down all my efforts in the body to maintain a state of good health.    I had an overwhelming feeling of weakness and felt like passing out for several hours.

  • Lightheaded (Intense due to anemia)
  • Very heavy menstruation (due to med side effects) anemic
  • Dry Mouth (due to the med side effects)
  • Dizziness (no stars)
  • Some skin mottling
  • Anxiety pretty bad
  • Headache (due to the med side effects)

Treatments I used today to bring myself back to normal:

  • I immediately juiced 4 carrots, 2 celery and mixed with barley green.
  • Ate one banana for potassium
  • Drank 12 oz of water and added trace mineral of pink himalayan salt
  • Drank 16 more oz of water with lemon essential oil.
  • Used doTERRA lavender essential oil to calm down the anxiety.
  • Added a high iron supplement for signs of anemia

My worst moments today:

This morning after dropping my son off at school I barely made it home I was so lightheaded and weak driving.  Thank you God for getting me back to my home safely.

My best times today:

After implementing some of the treatments I felt a slight improvement in the weakness.  It's still early in the day so I'll add more as time goes on.

On Thursday night at 7:30pm I had ingested some epsom salt internally (approximately 2 teaspoons) and immediately after my heart went into "acute A-fib and arrhythmia" My son called 911 and by the time I was in the ambulance my heart rate was over 220 bpm.

When I got to the ER it was going higher than that....both chambers of the heart were beating at two different rates, one was around 114 the other around 220-230. I came very close to flat-lining and cardiac arrest.

The emergency drugs they were trying to use were not working to get my heart back into a normal rhythm. Finally after 4 hours they got the one chamber that was over 230 to come down to 180 but the two chambers were still beating opposite of each other.

They moved me immediately to ICU and began a drip of Diltiazem. I prayed like I had never prayed before.....finally around 3:30am on Friday morning my heart began to synchronize together and they both were now beating about 130 at resting rate or NSR which is (Natural Sinus Rythymn). I spent a day in ICU until my heart rate was at about 83 resting. They said it wasn't perfect but kind of miraculous that it had recovered that well in a short period of time.

My mom is here with me and I am still on the heart meds and low dose aspirin to prevent stroke. I am so very scared as you can imagine. I am not going anywhere so church and driving is out of the question.

Many of you know I am not a fan of pharmaceutical meds unless it's an emergency...but this time they did save my life and I am forever grateful that I live 5 minutes from one of the best heart hospitals.

I am still not out of the woods yet, so your prayer would be appreciated.
