View Full Version : Requesting Prayers and Good Thoughts, Please

As most of you know, Chris and I have a son, Jeff. He just turned 22 in July.
He is going to undergo open-heart surgery August 29, 2005 to replace his aortic valve.
He was born with aortic valve stenosis - his aortic valve does not open or shut all the way; blood leaks back into his heart, which can backup into his lungs. His valve is giving out, so it must be replaced.
He will be at Methodist Hospital in the Medical Center in Houston. It is one of the world's top hospitals for heart surgery, so he's in pretty good hands.
Please say a prayer and have good thoughts for Jeff to help him (and us) through this time.

bump again - this surgery is today.
God Speed, Jeff!

Hope all goes well today.
Our daughter was born early, with two holes in her heart. Having instantly started loving her more than life itself, it was quite a blow. In our case, we were lucky, as the holes closed over within 3 months.
I'm sending you nothing but the best wishes that all is fine... :-D

Jim spoke to Cindy around 12:00 this afternoon and Jeff is out of surgery. She said that things went really well and hope to have him up and walking by this evening. I'm sure they are comforted in knowing that everyone is thinking of them.-Linda

Excellent! Thanks for the update, Linda!

That's great news!
Glad to hear everything is going well and that he's expected to be up and moving so quickly.

Great to hear that, Linda!
It's amazing how quickly they get patients up and moving around after that kind of major surgery. Guess it helps to be young and strong too.
