Some unpleasant news

I never know how to say these sorts of things, so I am going to just say it.

Some of you may know takayla had an "episode" of some sort a while back that we had attributed to migraines. They had stroke-like symptoms, but the neurologist said, they were complex aural migraines. He said was that there was definitely something wrong with the heart and that it went hand in hand with these types of migraines, and she should see a cardiologist. She saw the cardiologist today.

Well, the news was not good. They think she has a hole in her heart (from atrium to atrium). Either that, or she has something producing clots from either a major artery or a vein in her head. Whatever is causing the clots are making the kind of clots that don't stay put, and they go to her brain. This is obviously a very bad thing.

We discussed today how to address all her friends about this, and this seemed the best way. I am optimistic, but this is pretty damn serious, so... there you are. I'll post more news as thing progress.

Some links with details on the suspected issue:
