Last week I (Georgette) asked Harry if I could use the Adoration Letter to say “Thank You” to everyone for their prayers and support, and to share some of what I went through prior to my heart surgery. He told me that he thought it would be a good idea, and encouraged me to write this week’s article.
I was able to bring Georgette home from St. Mary’s hospital last Monday (June 21). The trip took about 7 ½ hours. In order to keep her blood from clotting, we had to stop every 90 minutes so she could get out of the car and walk around. All things considered, she is doing very well. She’s not allowed to drive for 4 weeks and is forbidden from lifting anything heavier than a gallon of milk for 6 weeks.
Last week I told you about the heart surgery that was scheduled for Georgette. Thanks to the prayers from an army of Christians, the surgery was successful and she is slowly recovering. The surgery was performed at St. Mary’s Hospital in Rochester, Minnesota, by Dr. Hartzell Schaff, a heart surgeon who is considered by many to be the top surgeon in the world for the type of heart surgery Georgette needed to have.
