She currently has a mechanical mitral valve and pacemaker.“This will be her third open heart surgery,” he explained. “I thank all of you for past support and future support. I am praying for peace and comfort for all of us and a smooth operation with speedy recovery. May God be with Dr Knott-Craig and his staff, as he performs the surgery.”While Sahryn is recovering, her family requests family, friends and strangers alike show their love with a card shower.

I would love for her to know how many people thought of her that day, and actually see it.”There is an account set up at Midfirst Bank to assist Sahryn’s family with the the costs that come with special healthcare needs such as this.
