Endocarditis and my baby girl….

This is what took the life of my beautiful forever 20 year old daughter. This condition is caused by an infection that affects the heart valves. Dallas’s infection was presumably caused by IV drug use (shooting up heroin).

My daughter was an honor roll student, cheerleader, social butterfly, animal lover, and so much more. Her proudest thing was becoming a Mommy to an amazing little girl, Madelyn. 

Making the one mistake to impress a boy and fit it, changed the course of not only her life, but many others, too. 

Dallas was in ICU on a ventilator for almost a month. She underwent valve replacement surgery and a pacemaker put in, not once, but TWICE!  She couldn’t beat the devil. She became sick a third time and the doctors refused to operate again. She was given 6 months and sent home. 

She lost her battle with addiction at 10:00 am on Sunday, July 17th, 2016. She is no longer in pain, depressed, anxious, or battling the evil drug, heroin. 

There will be many more posts about my daughter, addiction, and heroin.
