Update on Nancy’s MRI

CaringBridge journal entry by Stephanie Fay — 10/21/2016

Nancy received a written report yesterday that her cardiac MRI is normal. We give thanks for that. As expected, there are parts of her heart that can’t be seen clearly because of her defibrillator. So this is good news on Nancy’s continued road to recovery. She says, “Thanks for your thoughts and prayers.”

Update from Nancy & Steph

CaringBridge journal entry by Stephanie Fay — 10/18/2016

Week by week, Nancy has continued her amazing recovery. The proof is in the pictures! We just finished walking 5.2 miles from our house to Longfellow Grill via Summit Avenue. We are ecstatic to be sitting outside for supper in mid October!!!

Last week Nancy had an appointment with the electrophysiology cardiologist (the doc who placed her defibrillator before she left the hospital in August), and he discovered her kidney numbers were back to normal and her heart MRI could be scheduled. So she will have that tomorrow afternoon already. Please hold her extra tight in your thoughts and prayers for both a calm and easy test as well as a NORMAL result. We are not sure if we will get results tomorrow or not.

Thanks to all for your continued support. We are grateful for each day, each other and all of you!

Our Evening Stroll

CaringBridge journal entry by Stephanie Fay — 8/24/2016

Nancy continues to recover here at home. She remains an amazing and patient, well, patient. There have been a few wee bumps along the road to recovery — namely a bit of an infection and a whole lot of hives from a new antibiotic — but, to no one’s surprise, she has persevered.

First day of cardiac rehab earlier today. She had to take a 6 minute walk while they monitored her heart. That led quite seamlessly to a 60 minute nap upon returning home.

We also went on a short walk together this evening on our block. She’s looking pretty amazing, don’t you think??? 🙂

I’m just happy she’s alive, happy she’s home, and happy she’s getting stronger every day.
