With news that Voddie Baucham’s heart surgery went “perfectly,” we have a few more details about what happened, what was done, and what the recovery will look like.
Baucham informed supporters through the GoFundMe site:
They suspect that the heart failure was induced by an arrhythmia (actually two). This is good news because the procedure I underwent is designed to eliminate such arrhythmias, this allowing my heart to recover and remodel. In other words, I am not expected to stay on the heart failure track (which ultimately leads to transplant) but regain full heart health.
Of course, time will tell if they fixed it all, and I will be monitored closely for the next few months. But we are hopeful.
In an update to his Facebook ministry page, he elaborated that with the surgery successful, he was discharged from the hospital on Saturday the 27th, but would be staying in the area for the next two months in order to get checked up and have more appointments, follow-up, etc. In a video on his page, he explains:
They say I’m going home tomorrow, so we’re very pleased about that. We’ll be staying here in the area, having to come back for some checkups in a week and in a month. But I just wanted to let you know that the procedure I underwent yesterday was very successful and that things were better than they expected, and I’m expected to make a full recovery. We’ll learn more in the coming 10 weeks, but for now, things are looking pretty hopeful.
We have been amazed, Bridget and I both, and overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support and prayers from people all over the world.
I scared her the other day as I was sitting in the bed just weeping. She thought something was wrong, and what happened is I was reading comments from the GoFundMe and I just had to stop. I was overwhelmed. And so thank you. It meant more than you could possibly know.
There’s still a road ahead. There’s still work to be done, but the hope is my heart will be able to repair and remodel and I’ll be able to get back to normal and not really have to worry about this as an ongoing thing.
So again, just wanted to thank you. Just wanted to you know how much I appreciate, and how much Bridget and my family appreciate your prayers and your support and wanted you to sort of see me with your own eyes, to know that things are going well, and that I’m doing well, that I’m on the mend.
God has been gracious, God has been kind. I will definitely say more about the series of events that led us to where we are and the series of events that took place so that the team who did this – amazing team, could do this when they did it, but for now, I just want to say thank you.
With Baucham’s GoFundMe being given by 13,000 donors who collectively gave over 1.4 millions dollars, he will have a lot of comments and prayers to sift through if he plans on reading them all.
His mother, Frances Baucham, also posted some pictures showing that her son was on the mend while weeping tears of joy.
Continue to keep Voddie in your prayers.
A CALL TO ACTION
Enjoy our content? GREAT! Unfortunately, ad revenue for truth-telling websites has been severely hampered by censorship and de-platforming. This ministry isn't free to run, and finding people willing to support polemical theology is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
