Update: My daughter has been in surgery since right before 9am. I'm not quite sure where everything stands right now (the only updates I've been getting are "it's going to be a while... this is a good time to get something to eat.. we'll give another update in an hour and a half..." The last update was the same, plus the information that her cardiologist has requested a vascular consult in the O.R. boggled . She's had trouble with her veins blowing with blood draws & IVs recently - once a vein blew without even getting an IV or any kind of trauma. They carefully didn't send a nurse, who might have been able to answer questions, they sent the surgery receptionist to tell me she didn't know why a consult was needed (or maybe I'm being paranoid after going to bed at 2am and a day that started at 4:30am?).

I went to Mass in the hospital chapel at noon and felt a little more at peace for a while and seeing all your prayers has been very encouraging. I'll let you know when she's out of surgery (there will be about an hour before I'll be able to see her while they get her "comfortable" in the ICU). Thank you all so much! I thank God for all of you! hug Praying

(Quote) Joyce-61410 said: 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!

The thought occurs to me, that a vascular specialist is one who specializes in stroke. During her heart catheterization two months ago, she had some symptoms that indicated that she might have had a stroke, but they decided it was a medication reaction.... I wish one of the medical professionals would come talk to me sad

Before the receptionist left at 630 she gave me the last update: they were making sure everything was working correctly before closing up her chest. The surgeon thought it would be less than an hour before they started closing. The board still shows she's in surgery (not closing). They said they'd call my cell phone if it went longer than an hour. I still haven't heard anything an hour and a half later....
