Just an update from Amy's mom:
Dr. Ross just spoke to us and said that Hope's surgery went well. They had to patch her aorta twice but it seems to be functioning well at this point. He said often, with aorta's as tiny as Hope's, there is a problem with the coronary artery but hers seems to be doing very well, praise the Lord. She is not on the heart-lung bypass machine at this moment but they may need to put her back on in the night if she needs it. He reitterated that the next 24 hours are critical and that she is, by no means, "out of the woods" yet.
Thank you all for praying and your continued prayers are so needed!!! We are rejoicing that she has made it through surgery and are asking God to continue keeping His hand of protection on her as we walk through the next 24 hours.
After almost 8 hours of waiting, we are exhausted, but elated at the same time! We will probably take shifts staying by her bedside tonight. Will update you and let you know how things are going.
