Tracie went to church on Sunday morning, January 9th, and seemed fine. Late Sunday afternoon her heart rate went up to 170-190. So they went to the ER. The doctors got the heart rate controlled and discovered she also had pneumonia. Tuesday morning, January 11, she went back into AFib again. They had to do a cardioversion three times to get her heart back into rhythm. She was also put on a ventilator. They have tested her for COVID & Flu twice, but they both were negative. The pulmonologist did a bronchoscope on Wednesday, January 12, & drained lots of fluid off her lungs. They put her on 4 high powered antibiotics to cover everything that could have caused the pneumonia. Tracie was able to come off the ventilator on Thursday morning, January 13 and was moved out of ICU and into a regular room on Friday, January 14. She seemed to be improving everyday until Monday, January 17. Her white blood cell count went back up and fluid began to build up around the lungs and heart. She is being transferred to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital on Tuesday, January 18. They plan to do a pericardiocentesis on Wednesday, January 19, to remove the fluid from around her heart.
