Thank you @Yvonne Smith. Jess's surgery went well and the Surgeon did not have to replace the value, only repair it. My daughter just picked up our youngest grandchild who I had kept all day while she was at the hospital for her dad. She is a Respiratory Therapist and will go back to the Hospital at 9pm because they have not been able to take her dad's breathing tube out yet and she has some concern about the numbers with this. Her sister is a Registered Nurse....so my ex has the best advocates who know what things mean and what is going on with their dad. I thank you so much for your prayers and I am thankful our heavenly Father brought healing to you and I pray He does the same for my daughters' dad. And yes Yvonne...it was down to simply having to make the choice for Jess too.
