Update #2

Dear friends,

I apologize for not updating everyone earlier. The surgery went very well with no surprises. Praise God! It took just about 5 hours. She did have a lot of scare tissue that took 2 hours to cut through, but other than that, nothing out of the ordinary. They put in a certified bovine (cow) replacement valve in which should last for about 25 years. By then, they are hoping to be able to do the surgery through a catheter.

Thank you so much for your prayers. Please know that they were greatly appreciated! Rachel should be coming home sometime between Sunday and Tuesday so please continue praying that she heals quickly.

Bethany, so glad her surgery went well. We live in an age of medical miracles. And it gets better all the time. Who knows what technology will be available in the future when she needs further treatment.
