Renee Holly's Healthy Heart

On February 28th, Renee Holly was rushed to the hospital with chest pain and was paralyzed from the waist down. On March 1st, Renee went through emergency open heart surgery to repair her torn aorta. The surgery was supposed to last 8-24 hours with 50/50 chances. The surgery lasted 10 hours, the doctors told us Renee wouldn't wake up from the anesthesia for 4 days. An hour later she was awake! The doctors told us that having not had blood flow to her right leg for over 24 hours the chances of her having any movement or feeling in the leg was very minimal. The very best outcome would be minimal movement of her toes. God sure did show us who’s in control, she now miraculously has a pulse in her right foot and can move her toes and tilt her foot and even at times has lifted the leg up a couple inches. She is showing significant improvement every day. Nothing can explain how this is possible the doctors are baffled, the only explanation is God is working miracles.  Those of you that know Renee, she is a Godly woman, she devotes all of her time and effort to other people. Even after surgery she tells the nurse staff she doesn't want to bother them and is more worried about her family than herself. I am not asking for a set amount of money I ask for your prayers and thoughts for Renee's recovery. God will provide, during this time Benny and Renee will be out of work for an unknown amount of time, Renee can’t lift things, or put her arms above her head for 6 months. An unknown amount of medical bills and the unknown if she will ever walk again. Mom will be in the hospital for a long time. Medical bills are adding up, unfortunatly they have a really high deductible and co-pay.  Thank God this happened when mom has medical insurance in the past she hasn't been on insurance. Those of you that know Benny and Renee Holly you know that they don’t ever ask for anything but are always the first to help others.

-Thank you,
Renee's kids.
