Update on Alyssa's Heart Condition

Independence Day 2019

On April 11th, we shared news of Alyssa Webster’s heart surgery. (Click here to read our post with the details.) She just released an update, so we wanted to pass it on to you all.

Alyssa's doctor has scheduled the same surgery again because the first one was unsuccessful. After the first procedure, Alyssa was told that there was a 50% chance that her abnormal heartbeats would return, and they did. Her doctor informed her that her arrhythmia is one of the worst he has seen. Please continue to pray for healing for Alyssa, a successful surgery, and wisdom for the medical staff that will be treating her.

  1. Lots and lots of prayers for you! My husband had Afib and had an ablasion just last week, which was thankfully successful. Good luck!

    1. That symbol actually is a high five symbol and not a prayer symbol.

      Delete
    2. No it’s not a high five. It comes up whenever you type in the word ‘prayer’ People used to hold their hands like that for prayers

      Delete
    3. Actually, if I type the word “praying” or “prayer” into my iPhone that symbol pops up.

    4. Reply to 10:43 High 5 comment. MO- I use it as a prayer symbol. I guess it's up to interpretation. I choose to think of it as prayer when I see it. :o)

      Delete
    5. A lot of people use it to represent prayer, it can mean whichever you want

      Delete
    6. And yet many people use it for a prayer symbol.

    7. 10 43, but the hands are together as in prayer. It doesnt look like a hand up for high five at all to me.

      Delete
    8. If you type in “praying” on my phone, the above symbol pops up as a suggestion. If I type in “high five” ✋ and πŸ™Œ pop up as suggestions. You may be mistaken or perhaps different phones suggest different emoticons? I do know that “thank you” brings up the same symbol πŸ™πŸ» that’s suggested for “praying”.

      Delete
    9. People all over the web use it as a prayer symbol so it serves more than one purpose.

      Delete
    10. Two hands placed firmly together, meaning please or thank you in Japanese culture. A common alternative use for this emoji is for prayer, using the same gesture as praying hands

      Delete
    11. Emoji creators said it’s prayer

      Delete
    12. To me it looks like someone with his head bowed, hands together, eyes closed. I say it's a prayer symbol.

      Delete
    13. It's used for both!

      Delete
    14. That was debunked. It is praying hands. Don't believe all memes.

      Delete
    15. Really people! Does it matter! Send prayers for Alyssa instead of spending time debating this.

  3. Prayers for you Alyssa and your family as they are beside you. I pray that God gives you comfort, peace and a successful new surgery. Remember to lean on him and know that he is with you. Thinking about you and your family, this must be scary and tough.

  8. I had 3 failed ablations. I now have a defibrillator. That or a pacemaker may be the solution if ablation fails again. The rhythm has to show up while you're on the table so they can map it and then zap it. If that doesn't happen, they have to find another solution. It happens all the time.

  15. Jehovah Raphe, you are the creator, you knit Alyssa together and have revealed this condition to her Doctors. You are the great physician and healer. Lord, you do miracles every day, every hour, every minute, every second. Some seen, some not seen. Father we are asking for a miracle that this condition would be healed permanently. Thank you Lord for your undeserved mercy and grace on us. Your word says where two or more are gathered, You are there. We bind our faith together and ask this in Jesus name. Amen

  16. Have they checked to see if you have a bicuspid aortic valve? I was born with one & it wasn't discovered until I was 28. It causes me the same symptoms.

  29. I hope all goes well for her and stays that way. She has a nice famiily and they need her present in their lives. I'm glad she seeks the medical care of qualified professionals regardless of the professionals' personal beliefs. I hope this family proceeds with caution regarding any future biological children. Seek the advice of a good obstetrician...ditch the midwives at this point.

    1. 5:51, midwives aren’t idiots, and will know to send her to a specialist if that is needed.

    2. SVT is not life threatening. My daughter had it as well. It is scary when the heart starts racing, but it won’t cause problems with a baby. I think she is probably using preventative measures to not get pregnant until they can correctly ablate the right spot. If they are able to freeze or burn the correct location, then she won’t have any further problems.

  30. MO- Thoughts and Prayers go out to Alyssa and the family. I'm sure Alyssa has the best of care and hopefully this next surgery will correct the issue. :o)

  54. Both my parents had open heart surgery and thankfully are good now. They get tired faster and need naps, but are alive. Please pray for them too. As I understand it Alyssa has irregular heartbeats but if the other parts are in good working order it a freezing progress not cutting, so not as dangerous. Will still send up a prayer though cause heart surgery is no joke.
