blood clot in the RA

the day before yesterday had started off so well we tried to breast feed olivia and she was eager to try and she did well... i went off to my appointment had a good session and left happy and feeling good. i returned back to the hospital to spend the rest of the day with olivia and snuggle the baby.
when i arrived the doctors talked to me about some concerning news... olivia has a large blood clot in the RA of her heart. they called it a cath cast caused by the ra line that was placed. it is a very large one i must say. i saw the echo and all i can say is "this sucks"

i am so scared right now... this can possibly end my baby's life... all i can do is pray and i swear it isnt helping me right now.

i wish i can say that this is all going to work out but i dont know whats going to happen.... but i hope baby girl fights hard!


  1. I came to your blog through a friend of a friend & have checking in often (hope that's ok! I'm a mama too, & your story just speaks to my heart). Sending prayers for your sweet girl.

  2. I am praying for all of you tonight. Clots SUCK, but our little ones seem to get through things other people don't.

  3. Im praying hard for Olivia and for you. This is such sad news. Your in our thoughts
