Mary’s surgery ended just before Noon today, November 1. Her preparation time lasted somewhat longer that initially projected, so the operation itself didn’t begin until after 9:00 AM, although we were up at 3:30 AM and had arrived to register on Surgical Level 3 at 5:00 AM sharp. It’s already been a long day.
I just spoke with Mary’s surgeon, Dr. Klemperer, who told me that the procedure was quite straightforward. No complications or surprises. She remained stable throughout. And she now has a new aortic valve — evidently none too soon, based on what he told me.
She will soon be transferred from Recovery to the Coronary Care Unit where I will see her for the first time since her surgery ended.
The first hours and days post-surgery are critical, so thanks for your continued concern and prayers.
I’ll probably not be able to respond to individual emails until next week, but I will try to post once more late today and at least a few more times in the coming days.

We are so glad to know the surgery went well and as expected; praise the Lord! And, as the Lord wills, by this pattern we might dare to expect a swift recovery and for Mary to be feeling better than she has in a long while. God bless you both.
