      I wanted to let y’all know that our very own Brittany Foister will undergo major surgery today. We want to love her and support her by sending positive vibes and prayers her way. This is a big one and will take a while for her to recover afterward.

      You know that she has had so many surgeries that it is easy to lose count for those of you who know her. Her body is truly amazing as she pushes through so many times. She is an inspiration to me and so many of you, too, I know.

      Britt, we love you and miss you here in the forums. We want to cover you with our love and prayers today. Prayers for the doctors, surgeons, and all on your team. Prayers for your family, too.

      One of us will try and update as we know more.

      Thank you, @s-steppins; you are so kind and thoughtful.

      We just heard that Brittany made it through surgery. She still needs the thoughts and prayers as she recovers. She is always shown us what a Warrior looks like through each of her surgeries. Poor girl needs a break. I pray this surgery is what she needs and will help her with many issues.

      I spoke with Brittany this morning for about 2 minutes. Our poor girl was having pain and nausea so bad up early, of course.

      I do have contact with her mom, so I do not disturb Britt if she is resting. The last update was that the pain team was on top of her pain. That was a huge relief, I know. Although she has a long way to go, she is one strong young woman. Everyone who meets her falls in love with her contagious love of life and goofy vibes.

      Please keep prayers and thoughts going for her, the medical team, and her family. As a mom, I know this is difficult for her mom to watch each time. As she says, ” this was a big surgery.” I know Britt and the fam appreciate each of your kind words and prayers.

      You got this, Britt!! #TeamBRITT

      Hi @mainegal, so good to see you post here. It has been a while. I hope that you are doing OK.

      I know that Britt is feeling all of the love. This morning in a text she told me that she is doing this with her “Army” behind her. Her mom said that they got her up in a chair and I knew that would be tough and draining. THe main issues are pain and vomiting that I am hoping and praying that they can relieve some today.

      She needs all of the love and support here. She knows how many are behind her and walking beside her through this difficult recovery. Thank you all for all of the love.

      Happy Monday to y’all.

      I have some positive news to share with you all. Brittany went home yesterday evening from the hospital. As she told me, she needs to focus on rest and recovery. She has a long way to go, but she will get there with so much love and support.

       

      I reminded her over the weekend that many are sending love, hugs, and support from here within the PH forums. She is so appreciative.

       

      Plus, as you know her well, she is one tough cookie and an inspiration to myself and so many others. She is a mighty little PHighter. We love you, Britt, and many love you.

      @jenc any word on how Brittany is doing?

      I was thinking about her.

      Hi @s-steppins, thanks for asking. Brittany is recovering well. Yesterday, she updated that her oxygen sats increased to 96 for the 80s. That in itself is a huge milestone as she recovers.

      She has started back at work some. As most of you know, she is one tough cookie. I am so grateful and happy for her as I watch her recovery.

      I am certain that she feels the love and support from you and our other forum members. But, of course, with such a complicated heart surgery, she needs to heal mentally and emotionally, too. So often, I think those are the most difficult parts of healing and recovery.
