Comfort went in to surgery today around 1:00 and at 4:30 the surgeon met us in the family room to give us the good news. The surgery went much better and quicker than expected. As soon as the blockage was removed from her heart the right ventricle began to work and did not need support, PRAISE GOD!!! It also reduced in size by 50% during the procedure!! Everything else looked great and everything on the monitors was also great. Really, really good news after all the 'just in case' preparations they gave us.
Comfort is still sedated and on a breathing tube until tomorrow morning, but that's much better than the original plan of possibly having her on a heart pump after surgery for days or weeks.
THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR YOUR PRAYERS!!! I believe that God has heard and answered. He has a great plan for Comfort's life!!

GO COMFORT! You are one awesomely strong little girl. I'm so proud of you! You did it!!!! Now comes the easy part, relaxing and letting your mom take care of you. All you ever needed!!!

Lois called Kingsley for you to tell him the good news. All those months he couldn't do anything besides drive you all over Ghana, to see as many doctors as possible...and pray! He must be SO happy to hear that we can all say MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

Praying for a quick recovery for you, and for very little pain.

Love you!
