Graham Gives God “The Glory” For Successful Surgery

Posted to Franklin Graham’s Facebook page:

Because so many of you have prayed, sent encouraging messages, and asked how I was doing, I wanted to let you know that I was released from Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, yesterday, after a specialized surgery last Monday to correct constrictive pericarditis (inflammation and hardening of the sac around the heart that compresses the heart and prevents it from working properly).

I couldn’t be more grateful to my doctors and the Mayo Clinic team for their excellent care and expertise. The doctors say that I am doing really well and will be able to return to my normal activity and ministry schedule when I’m fully recovered. I will be recuperating for the next few weeks but am feeling better every day.

Thank you to everyone for your prayers—I know what a difference prayer makes! I was never afraid. I felt God’s presence throughout the entire experience and give Him the glory!
