The wonderful news is what we have grown to expect from such an awesome God. Always faithful and true to his word, just as we continue to be faithful to him and his calling in our lives.
Hugs and continued prayers to you all!
Wally (as I don't think Tracy is reading these yet. Maybe tomorrow. Anyway Wally I am so happy to hear everything went well. Good is so good!! EVERY DAY IS A HOLDIAY!! We will m iss hearing that from you tonight. Will check on you later.
Dear Tracy and Family:
Just found out this morning about your surgery and you are all in my thoughts and prayers as you go through this very difficult and trying time. Tracy, I can relate more with your husband and the rollercoaster of emotions he is experiencing as I went through heart valve surgery with my husband 12-13 years ago. At the time, it is such an emotional process, but you sound as though you have a wonderful support system through family and friends, which is soooo important, and also a strong religious belief, which is also soooo very important. God will see you through and hold you all close to his heart as your journey continues to progress. Again, God bless...you will be in my prayers for a healthy and speedy recovery and your family also as they recover too.
Dear Tracy, Wally and kids. Please know that you are in our prayers today. We have a candle going, so each time we pass the candle, another prayer in on its way. We will watch for updates.
Ron and Jeanne Beeck
Hi Wally & Tracy - May you feel God's peace throughout today and in the days to come. We are so fortunate we live in a time of such wonderful technology and medical advances . . but most of all, we are so blessed we serve an awesome God who is our Great Physician. Right now (8:05 a.m.), Jesus is standing next to your team of physicians, guiding their hands, calming your hearts. Last night our Living Hope teams met and prayed for your healing and vowed to continue to pray. We claim God's healing verse for you in Psalm 103-"Praise the Lord, and do not forget all his benefits-who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases . . ". You will be in our thoughts and prayers today and in the days to come for complete healing.
Our thoughts and prayers have been with you from day 1; are with you now; will be with you tomorrow; and with you thru your whole recovery. You are a wonderful loving family and you have a very large extended family in Amberg that cares very much about you ALL. We know that with the Love of our Heavenly Father and his healing power you will be healed.
May "God's peace" fill you minds and hearts today, tomorrow and forever,
Auntie Maino & Uncle Red
PS. Just remember - "Jesus loves us, this we know, 'cause the BIBLE tells us so. We little ones to HIM belong, but we are weak and HE is strong!" His strength will help, comfort, and heal you!

Just wanted to let you know you are not alone in this. I had heart surgery when I was 16 at Children's Hosptial in Milwaukee. If you ever want to talk or exchange stories just let me know. You and your family are in my prayers.
Tracy - Both the Wausaukee & Athelstane Presbyterian Churches are holding you and Wally in our prayers. We will be lifting you up to our Lord, especially tomorrow - you are on all of our hearts. God will work his miracles thru the physicians and the medical staff that will be caring for you. Blessings to you, Pastor Lin
Dear Tracy,You are always in our hearts and our prayers, now more than ever. We hope that you will never have to be in our shoes, just as we had hoped that you would never have to be were you are now. As you stood by us through all our difficult times, we are there for you at your time of need. You, Wally and the kids have always been a blessing to us and we believe that God will be with you every step of the way. And we are anxiously waiting for the healing side to start. All our love, Mom and Dad P.
I want both of you to know that we love you both and that you are in our thoughts and prayers often through out the day. You both have been a great inspiration to the Lueck Household and to our Church. I wanted to share with you what my September 8th Joyce Meyer scripture is:
Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your "hearts" and minds through Jesus christ.
We are speaking complete quick healing and recovery for you Tracy and know that we will be lifting you up and bathing this in prayer. I look forward to seeing what God has for you after this is healing. Love you both!!
Tracy and Wally,
Our prayers go out to you and your family, but upward to God the father who hears and answers our prayers; his son purchased our redemtion along with the promise of healing.
Be an Eagle will explain later.
Hi Tracy,Wally & Family,May the Lord keep you in his loving arms. We will be praying for you.We will see you on Friday ,Tracy ,athough you probably won't know we're there.We love you so very much.Love,Mom&Dad
Standing with you - knowing that our Sweet Jesus has you all in the palm of His Holy Right Hand!!! Lifting you up and through to the other side where perfect health and happiness is waiting for you...
Love and prayers,
A'Gail and Uncle Dale
We're so proud of you and Wally... Don't you wonder how folks do things like this without the Lord and family to lean on? God is so gracious and His love is everlasting! Continue to walk in the Grace that He is pouring out upon you...
Shalom, Shalom - means nothing broken, nothing missing... That's what we speak over you and yours!
Love and prayers,
You know why I love this site? Because I love spreading happiness and good thoughts! That's exactly what I'm going to do now (I'm going to rename myself the heart valve fairy!)
I'm in the U.K., I'm 31 and I've been through aortic valve surgery twice ( the last was 8 weeks ago) - just so you know where I'm coming from.
You're bound to worry about things and it is an emotional roller coaster, but I want you to realise what great hands you're in. These surgeons know their stuff! Even on my second time, I was worried, scared and confused, maybe more so that the first time. But when I went through it again, it was not how I remembered it. It seemed easier! I think my mind had scared me from the previous time.
As you said, step at a time... That's the best thing! Just remember, try to get some good sleep before, think positive thoughts and remember it's a procedure they do all the time!
When you wake up, you won't be in a lot of pain, you will be nicely dosed. You might feel a little sick, and you'll be thirsty, but your body will have a good way of coping bit by bit. You'll be sore over the next few days, and you'll sleep lots (this is the best bit) but everyday you'll see how it gets better. Everyone worries about the aftermath, please don't! Bit by bit, you'll be feeling better and walking around in no time. Like I said, time number two seemed easier in many ways, because I'd worried myself and then realised it wasn't as hard as I remembered!
I really do which you the speediest of recoveries!
If there is anything you would like to ask, or have worries over, please let me help you put your minds at rest!
I live in the Milwaukee area too, and I will be having valve surgery in October. I will be reading your journal and cheering you on every step of the way! You will be in my prayers for a full and speedy recovery.
Dearest Tracy, First of all we want you to know that we love you and are lifting you up before the Throne. Abba is holding you in His arms and already has your healing in place. His hands will be in the surgeons and the Mind of Christ will direct it all. He receives all the Glory and we get to have you around for a very long time! Remember we are here if there is anything we can do.. Look forward to having you back to the pond. See you soon.
Love and prayers,
Uncle Dale and A'Gail
Just a note to let you know that you have been in thoughts and prayers since Carol told me about your up coming surgery. God's blessings and may He grant you a speedy recovery. How blest we are to have a Heavenly Father who cares and watches over us.
With all my Love and Prayers Auntie Joan
