Peyton seemed to be a perfectly happy, healthy, and sassy 3 year old until Jan. 24, 2019. Peyton went from riding her scooter to full life support in 36hrs due to a previously undiagnosed heart arrhythmia. Peyton had always been so energetic, active, and healthy that we had no idea that she had a rare and very difficult to treat form of SVT called PJRT. This ultimately caused Peyton to go into heart failure, so she was airlifted to MUSC PCICU on the morning of Jan. 25th. Unfortunately, that date and the events of that morning will be forever seared into our minds. However, thanks to the wonderful doctors, nurses, and staff of the PCICU Peyton's story has a happy ending! Peyton coded within 10 minutes of arriving in the PCICU and was rapidly placed on ECMO (heart-lung machine) as her heart was so enlarged and barely pumping. The entire PCICU team, ECMO team, and Dr. Kavarana were so amazing! We would not have our Peyton here today if it were not for them! Peyton spent 7 days on ECMO while they got her arrhythmia controlled and allowed her heart function to improve. Those were beyond the toughest 7 days of our lives but the staff was so wonderful to us! Peyton spent the next 2.5 weeks after coming off ECMO in the PCICU weaning off of the ventilator and CRRT (continuous dialysis.) Peyton moved to the step-down unit where she started to regain her weight and strength while her doctors fine tuned her medications. She was finally discharged home on March 4th after 5.5 weeks at MUSC. Her heart function and size are miraculously back to normal and her arrhythmia has been well controlled with multiple medications. She is running around like a wild woman these days and is excited to start preschool next week! She loves to go back to visit all of her favorite doctors and nurses at MUSC, and we all are eternally grateful for everything they did for Peyton and our family!
