Amy Grant is recovering from heart surgery to correct a rare condition called PAPVR—partial anomalous pulmonary venous return.  (In a nutshell, that means that some of Amy’s pulmonary veins pump blood to the right atrium of her heart instead of the left atrium.)

Amy, 59, was diagnosed with the heart condition in February, and shared the news on Twitter.

According to an update on Amy’s Facebook page, the operation “could not have gone better.” Amy’s team asks that fans keep her in their prayers as she recovers in the coming weeks.

Get well soon, Amy!

Fun fact: Did you know that Amy was born here in Augusta?!
