My daughter has been fighting an infection of the heart - bacteria from a cat bite that attacked her artificial mitral valve. She is having surgery tomorrow to replace the valve with a new metal one. She's had a metal valve twice in the past. The last time we had to have it removed after only a year because she was having so many problems with the Coumadin they give her to prevent clots from forming on the valve.
There are problems galore in the future, but right now we need to get her safely through her surgery.
Thank you all for your continued prayers!
