Joy's husband, Jeff, here. I spoke with Joy about 1 PM, and she said the surgery went very well. Apparently, once they were in there, they discovered only three bypasses were needed, and the mitral value only needed repair, not complete replacement. (Something to do with pressure being released on the value with the completion of the bypasses. I'm sure Joy will explain it better once she's back in the saddle.)
Thank you everyone for your prayers. We know the fervent prayers of righteous servants accomplish much.
Please continue to pray not only for Helen's recovery and rehab, but also for Joy's flight back on Wednesday.
