Update on Clara Ray

Little Clara had heart surgery today.

Going into the surgery, the doctors didn’t know if they would be able to do a 2-ventricle repair, or if they would need to make her heart function on 1 single ventricle.  They had to wait and see how she did during surgery, and see how her heart looked.  If a single ventricle was necessary, it would take at least 2 more open heart surgeries to complete the process of converting her heart to function with a single ventricle.

I am so very happy to report that the surgery was incredibly successful.  Not only were the doctors able to preserve both ventricles, but they were able to “fix everything,” according to her mama.  Every hole in her heart and every leaky valve is fixed, and she has a permanent pacemaker.

The next 24 hours are the most critical, and the doctors are watching her closely, but for now, no more major surgeries are on the horizon.  She is expected to recover over the next several weeks, then go home in her Mommy and Daddy’s arms.

To God be the Glory, now and forever.

  1. Hello:

    I learned about your blog through Birthright International, which linked to this blog. You’re bessed with an inspirational story. Many parents who consider aborting because of a poor prenatal dx can be encouraged and blessed through your stories. I’m following your blog. In turn, I hope you’ll follow my two prolife sites. God’s blessings to you and the children!
