Out from Sugery

(by Bethany from http://iamknittogether.blogspot.com)

Thank you for praying! Penny's PDA surgery went well and she's not having the second surgery today! There is a slight coarct but not one that is causing any complications right now.  She'll be monitored closely over the next months and years, but for today, she's doing great!

The surgeon said that her ductus was twice the size of her aorta...that's HUGE!  She should feel much better now with that blood flowing the right way.  Praise the Lord from whom ALL blessings flow.  Even if that means the blessing of spending a morning trusting Him. Thank you for trusting Him with us!

Very gratefully - The Chus
