August of 2010 Dianna was walking up the stairs at BC and suddenly felt overwhelmed with fatigue. She was sweating, nauseous, and dizzy. Around 3pm her daughter got home in her condition and had her driven to the hospital. Upon arrival, they took her to the back almost immediately. Her heart rate was 225 BPM with an unreadable blood pressure. They said she was in vtech and stopped and restarted her heart. The next day she had a pacemaker/defibrillator installed next to her heart. She had no problems for 3.5 years until February when she had her very first shock while taking a shower. Afterwards, she started getting shocked more frequently which required her medications to change to try to control it. Dianna Amberg is a wonderful woman with so much strength and faith in The Lord. On June 5, she was admitted to Madera Community Hospital because her heart rate was 160 beats per minute. She stayed in that state for 3 days before they cardioverted her. She was then transferred to Fresno Heart and Surgical Hospital where she was supposed to undergo ablation surgery. That night, at 3:30 AM, her device shocked her 6 times within minutes of each other. Following that, she was cardioverted 3 times. She then stopped breathing and her heart went into a "rhythmless pulse". They did CPR and chest compressions for 5 minutes before she was back to us in a normal state. The next day, she was transferred to Fresno Community Hospital for the Ablation surgery where we found out her heart is much weaker than we originally believed. They attached her to an ECMO which is pumping blood into her heart and breathing for her currently. It's got two quarter sized hoses into both of her femoral arteries that are drawing blood out, oxygenating it, and pumping it back into her body. She was in a medically induced coma, and was airlifted to UC San Francisco to find out what her next step will be. So far, they've been talking heavily about a heart transplant and are spending several days assessing her physically and neurologically to see where she will be placed on the list. They have said that she is a prime candidate, and we are being prepared to move within an hour of the hospital for her after care which will last about 8-10 weeks. We were told by our social worker to raise at least $6,000 and every bit helps. We're aiming for more to cover all the necessary medical expenses so I've set out goal at $8,000. Thank you all in advance and God bless.
