Karver Repp is currently a 12 year old boy with a Congenital Heart Defect.  He was born with 3 bad valves.  He underwent a major open heart surgery to repair 3 valves at the age of 3.  The time has come for him to endure his 2nd open heart surgery to replace/repair 3 new valves.  His Aortic, Mitral and Tricuspid.  He has been followed very closely every 6 months by a cardiologist and they are seeing signs in his heart/body that it is ready for some more "help".  This surgery is very complex with needing 3 new valves.  His chief surgeon who did his last surgery in Milwaukee WI, has moved to Cincinatti, OH.  He is claimed to be one of the best surgeons in the country and knows Karvers heart from the inside already!  We have made the choice to go to Cincinatti for surgery!  Karver's surgery is scheduled for Monday November 4th.  As you can imagine there are a lot of uncertainties, anxious hearts and fears that go along with a surgery of this kind.  Please keep Karver, the family, the surgeons and the team in your prayers!  We will keep this site updated along the journey.  We have been down this journey before, but it is not any easier for any of us!  But we keep our eyes on the end of the journey and know that GOD has plans and is the one in control!  Karver is a very strong and healthy child with a heart of GOLD!
