Ablation Complete

 My daughter had the Ablation at UNC Hopsital. Above you see her in the recovery room. 
Its been ONE WEEK and what a difference 7 days can make! 
Look at the beautiful face! She is has bruises but is otherwise healthy and happy. 
She has been feeling great and returns to work tomorrow! 

In the 80's this procedure would have been a full open heart surgery. 
I am thankful for technology, especially in the medical (cardiac) field.
In addition to this wonderful news, my son is now a civilian! He walks off base today 
a completely free man. He served his four years and two tours in Afghanistan. 
Now, he begins college. 

Thanks for your prayers for our family! 
God has indeed heard our prayers and has answered them.

Ablation Update

My daughter had an Ablation procedure yesterday. While Ablation is a minor heart procedure, any surgery or procedure dealing with your heart is serious and scary. 

The above photo was taken as they wheeled her off for the surgery (after she had a little medication in her system) She was a little giggly.

They went in through the arteries in her legs and up to her heart. They found the area causing the problem (which was in a tricky area) and used a laser to burn the problem area. 
She is sore and tired but recovering well.

I was trying to blog more this summer but we have a lot going on! The major thing is that my "Future Teacher" has been having a lot of episodes with her SVT. She is going in for Ablation surgery/procedure on Monday for her heart. Keep us in your prayers!
