You have my prayers frogjerk. They have made remarkable progress in heart defects over the years. My one year old grandson was born with major heart defects and had two heart surgeries by the time he was 3 months old. He has one more surgery to go when he’s about 3 ... but ... to see this child you would never know that he has gone through this in life. He is a bundle of joy and motion. Praying for the Lord’s blessings for you and your family.

Update: My niece is doing well and in stable condition. The operation went well with no complications. She will need to be hospitalized for about 10 days and if no complications she will be able to go home with her family.
God Bless everyone on FR and thank you for all of your prayers. I will keep everyone updated as more is known.
And thanks again. God's will be done.

Prayers for your niece, yes.
By coincidence, my wife’s daughter had the same procedure done at about age 1, I believe.
By greater coincidence, that daughter gave birth to a daughter on Wednesday also! The mother is about 23 now.
Both are doing fine, as I’m sure your niece will!
Maybe the parents will enjoy the parallels.

Update #2. My niece is doing well and is alert. Her heartbeat is returning to normal and I think the only thing she is still connected to is the IV. She should be home by Christmas or Christmas Eve. What a wonderful gift that would be.
Again, God Bless everyone on FR and thank you for all of your prayers.
And thanks again. God's will be done.

Wonderful news, FJ!
Heavenly Father, bless this child and make her strong, send her home to her family for Christmas, and may their days be merry and bright! Amen!
