God alone is Sovereign

1 Chronicles 29:11

Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all.

Anna Grace - June 25 - Update #7

Brian and I just met with Dr. Bradley. They are getting Anna Grace settled in PCICU as we speak. We can go see her at 3:15 today.

Dr. Bradley said that Anna Grace had very desnse scar tissue so he had a hard time getting through it, but that surgery went smoothly with no problems. He was able to do the three repairs which he wanted to do : (1) Removing the shunt and suturing the SVC to the pulmoary artery, (2) patching the artery to the left lung, and (3) patching the "y" connection to the aorta. He said they did an echo at the end and that it looked good. Right now Anna Grace is asleep and is stable. He was able to close her chest as well.

Let's just all PRAISE THE LORD together right now for HIS good favor upon Anna Grace today during surgery. We are so thankful!

As you would expect she still has a long road to recovery and there is still much to be in prayer for, but one big hurdle has been crossed today and we are thankful.

Please be praying for no chlyothorax, that she remains stable, that she can come off the ventilator soon, that the doctors will be able to manage her pain well and that there would be no infection or fever.

We will keep you updated as we know more. Thank you prayer warriors!
