Mark is out of surgery and looks great. He even has good color! He has been moved to Cardic ICU now. Dr. Caskey is very pleased. It was nice for him to have to work on someone who is so healthy. Mark has always had low blood pressure and no diabetes. He did say his valve was so very damaged that a repair would not hold. Mark has a lovely valve from a very generous and kosher pig!

We are all so blessed! Thank you for your prayers and standing with us!

    Prayers answered. Thank you for the updates….please keep them coming

  22. Pam Johns Says:

    Wowza! Kristina, you must be exhausted. Mark will notice his exhaustion the minute he comes home. I’m smiling from ear to ear for both of you. This blog is addicting. But that’s a good thing, and even a happy ending! 🙂
    You’ll both continue to be in my prayers. Hope you can update us (not as often, of course), and I hope Mark will not answer emails, instead, he can rest in knowing that God has replied. Your friend in Abq, NM. Pam Johns

  23. The McEowns Says:

    Glory to God! We have been praying and believing… The Lord is surely on His throne. So happy and thankful that all went smoothly. Thanks for keeping us posted. Praying for rest and peace for you all after a long day. Hugs to you all.
    (I’m with JB, hoping to hear more about donor!)
