In February, Amy Grant informed her fans of some news she learned during a checkup with her doctor. Due to her dad’s heart history, her doctor, John Bright Cage, wanted to check on Amy’s heart health.
After going through a series of tests, Grant learned she has had a heart condition since birth. She told her fans she planned to take the summer off from touring and traveling in order to take care of her heart.
Then, on Wednesday (June 3), Grant underwent open heart surgery to correct her condition, known as PAPVR (Partial anomalous pulmonary venous return).
Grant’s team took to her Facebook page to share she was having surgery and asked her fans to pray for a postive outcome.
Those prayers were answered, as a few hours later Grant’s team was happy to report the surgery had been a success.
“Thank you for so many prayers today,” read the team’s statement on Grant’s Facebook page. “Amy is out of surgery and the doctor said it could not have gone better.”
The team later followed up with an additional statement on Grant’s Instagram, saying the surgery “went well” and she is receiving quality care.
“…she is recovering in the care of a great team of doctors,” the statement read. Her team promised there will be “More updates to come.”
Grant’s stepdaughter, Jenny Gill, also informed her Instagram followers how her surgery went.
“Amy’s open heart surgery went as perfectly as it could go!” Gill wrote. “She has a great team caring for her and I know she feels all your positivity!”
Gill said her stepmother’s road to recovery will be a “challenging” one, but she knows she’s up to the task. “…we know she will tough through,” she said.
Gill ended her message by thanking everyone for showing support to her stepmother during this time.
We’re so relieved to hear that Grant’s surgery was a success. We’ll be praying for her continued health and healing in the days, weeks, and months to come.
