Heather was born with Turner's Syndrome. She had her first heart surgery at 26 months. This was called COARCTATION OF THE AORTA, which is a narrow of the aorta. This surgery was very successful. We have always known (but hoped it wouldn't happen) that Heather would need another surgery. Today, August 13, Heather will undergo OPEN HEART SURGERY to repair her aorta and bicuspid valve. Also, Heather will have a heart anomaly repaired too, she has blood vessels going the wrong direction and putting more blood into the heart than what she need. This we never knew until now. Today will be very long, but will try to keep all visitors updated. We just ask for prayers for her. Thanks for visiting.
