My (our) son that lives in WY is going under the knife tomorrow (Monday) morning to have a valve replaced in his heart.
Pretty scary considering the procedure, but knowing the technology and specialists out there, it makes it a little easier to swallow ... I am confident that everything will go well, but it will certainly help having him in a few more prayers. I know it works ... It did for me!!

He has been having some odd problems off and on for about 2-3 months even resulting in a couple light strokes... and has had a veritable roller coaster ride going from one specialist to another and going through every test imaginable with hopes going up and down with the different prognoses (seems like they knew 'exactly' what it was several times ... NOT) ... and a few weeks ago, there was a test they did (TEE Scope) that allowed them to see from behind his heart and found a couple of small spots of infection on one of his heart valves ... So they installed a Pic line and administered some pretty strong anti-biotics twice a day for a while ... when that didn't work like they wanted it to, they decided to go ahead and replace the valve (which was one of the options before the anti-biotic) ... and so here we are.
Thanx in advance ... I appreciate it very much...
Allan

He's been steadily improving, but it's slow going and painful (no doubt...). They have had issues with BP, heart rate, nausea and pain meds ... but from what I understand, it's pretty much normal for that kind of traumatic invasive surgery...
I appreciate your prayers and thoughts ...
Thanx so much...
Allan
