A COUNTY FULL OF PRAYERS ANSWERED
Word came Monday that Megan Edney is coming home....three weeks after a successful heart transplant.
A published report in Hendersonville Lightning points out that Megan is the 14-year-old daughter of Michael and Lisa Edney. She was rushed to Levine Children's Hospital in Charlotte on May 30 when tests showed she was suffering from heart failure. Since then, Megan and her family have been through tests, treatment and her successful heart transplant operation, on June 12.
Michael, who is chairman of Henderson County's board of commissioners, said Monday on the Hendersonville Lightning's web site, "I think a miracle is the best word for it," "It's truly amazing what she’s come through and how quick everything happened."
Her release to come home happened faster than anyone expected, too.
Edney said, "They did the catherization and biopsy yesterday and everything came out perfect," "We have to come back once a week for who knows how long."
The Lightning report says that after tests showed that Megan's body was accepting her new heart, physicians cleared her to go home.
