Heart valve replacement surgery results

Greetings friends and family. Ron here with an update. Tuesday 1400h.

Janice has been at the hospital with mom since she checked in this morning. Janice sent me this update.

The operation went well. She did very well during the surgery. They replaced her mitral valve. The atrial valve was in good enough shape that they did not replace it. Janice reports that they removed a small appendage from the left atrial to prevent the chance of a future blockage.

Toni has been sewn up, cleaned up, and is currently in post-op recovery.

Janice is taking a nap now. That is a good sign. I will post an update later tonight when Janice reports in.


  1. Yay! So glad to hear a good report! Will be praying for a quick & complete recovery. Tell her we love her. Denise
