Katrina’s surgery was successful, and the doctor determined that her faulty heart valve was defective at birth. He replaced it, and she did fine. Her “tissue is soft,” he said, due to longterm MS medication, so they are watching her carefully for bleeding and brusing. But we can see her in a couple of hours and expect a normal recovery. The MS department will work with her to minimize immobility. Everyone at Vandy has been great, and we are so grateful for everyone’s prayers and support.
