Friends, we are so pleased to let you know that Dr Noel has just had word from Marta's surgeon, Marco Lorobina, of Royal Melbourne Hospital and he reports that things went "better than good" with Marta's heart valve surgery this morning.
Unlike some of our other patients, Marta had a valve repair rather than replacement. Dr Noel says it's trickier but where appropriate can be a much better result for the patient's long-term care. So far, it looks like an excellent result. Please keep an eye on this blog for further updates. And thank you for all the good wishes, please keep them coming!
