“Sarah Is ‘Mad As Hell’ But Doing Great After Heart Valve Surgery!” Says Pam

By Adam Pick on March 18, 2011

For those of you following the story of 5-year old Sarah Weir… I have great news to share!!!

Sarah’s mitral valve repair surgery was completed by Dr. Pedro Del Nido at Children’s Hospital Boston on Wednesday. After some minor post-operative issues (blood pressure, swelling), Dr. Pedro Del Nido is very happy with the results!

As for Sarah… Pam, her mother, writes, “Sarah is mad as hell – but doing GREAT!!! She wants to go home! I ask New York??? She says NO – HOME – THE FOUR SEASONS.”

I agree with Sarah. I think all heart surgery patients should start their recovery at the Four Seasons. 🙂

Keep on tickin’ Sarah!
