    Quick update: Lynn's surgery was a success!

    According to Dr. Smedira, everything went well. Dr. Lever was reviewing the echos and saw no sign of SAM. That is great news! Please continue to follow TheStatus.com webpage for further updates.

    Thank you to everyone for your prayers and support!

    Here is just a brief update ... check the status page for a full summary.

    Lynn was moved to a room from the ICU about 6pm last night. She is doing well. The echo today showed NO SIGN of SAM and they measured her septal wall at 1.1 cm (from 2.0 cm). The tech also indicated that her pressure gradient was 15 resting and 25 stressed. This is a huge improvement from over 50 at rest earlier this week. Recovery continues and we should hopefully be released on Tuesday.

    Again, keep checking the status page for day-to-day updates as I do not want to overload this message board with that information.

    Thank you everyone for your messages of support! Hopefully, Lynn's successful myectomy will inspire others who are young and symptomatic to seek out a specialist so they can also find some relief!
