CCM veteran Amy Grant had open heart surgery on Wednesday to fix a heart condition she has had since birth. Doctors discovered Grant had a heart condition called partial anomalous pulmonary venous return (PAPVR) during a routine checkup.
Grant's team reports: "From Team Amy - with all that is going on in our world that needs our collective prayer, please also join us in praying for Amy this week as she has heart surgery to correct her PAPVR condition."
Just a few hours later, Grant's fans got an update that the surgery was a success.
"Thank you for so many prayers today. Amy is out of surgery and the doctor said it could not have gone better. We would ask for continued prayers over the days, weeks and months to come as she makes a full recovery... xo," the update read.
Grant revealed in February that her doctor discovered she had a heart condition called partial anomalous pulmonary venous return, or PAPVR. According to the Mayo Clinic, PAPVR causes one or more of the pulmonary veins carrying blood from the lungs to the heart to flow into other blood vessels or into the heart's right atrium, instead of entering the heart's left atrium. This can cause veins to attach to the incorrect atrium and oxygen-rich blood to mix with oxygen-poor blood.
