Over time as the heart did not pump enough blood out, clots formed.
The biggest fear, the clots would travel.
Dr. Karen Ho is assistant professor of vascular surgery Northwestern Medicine.
“That’s a very serious risk, blood clots to the brain can cause stroke unfortunately,” Ho said. “She was started on a blood thinner right away which decreases that risk.”
But by then multiple clots had already traveled to her leg.
“I went from being told I had a weak heart, to blood clots to now blood clots taking over all my organs and my legs, and my toes. I didn’t have feeling in my toes,” Erin Ivory said. “My kidneys stopped working and I was down to one kidney.”
As doctors worked frantically to fix her heart and the subsequent medical consequences, other hearts were breaking. She had given Demetrius Ivory a sobering request before she went to the hospital.
“And he’s driving and crying and telling me he’s not going to talk about this,” she said. “And I am adamant because I’m thinking if I don’t come back out of this hospital, this is my only shot.”
“’If something happens to me, raise these kids right. Be a good man,’” Demetrius Ivory said. “Things like that on the drive to the hospital. With two 5-year-olds in the backseat. That was tough.”
“The twins were confused and I would call and try to sing to them but a lot of times I felt so sick in the hospital I was throwing up, even a phone call was hard,” she said. “And one night Lulu said, ‘Mom if you die, can I come see you before you die?’”
