Update on Kori

Here is the latest info, giving everyone a glimpse of what happened:

It is 9:45 on Monday. I recently spoke with Kim (Kori's sister). She remains the same. No change from yesterday. I found out a little more about what is going on. Kori has what is call post-partum cardiomyopathy. Basically what happens is that in pregnancy the mother's body has extra blood flow. Sometimes the mother's body cannot handle the extra flow and it over loads the mother's heart. Weakening the heart muscle. This is what happened to Kori. Her heart was unable to pump blood so it stayed in one place a formed a huge clot in the upper half of the left side of her heart (causing her to have a heart attack). It remains a waiting game. I will give daily updates and give you info as I get it. Take care.

please tell your friend about the peripartum cardiomypathy (PPCM) support site

Dr. Fett is a world PPCM specialist and can help. I know he saved my heart.

Kori is in my thoughts,
