Amy Grant Opens Up About Discovering Genetic Heart Condition and Needing Surgery: 'So Grateful'



"I just think sometimes in all of our jobs, we have what we're trained for, and then beyond that, there's an intuition and inspiration," Grant said. "And I think Dr. Cage did everything that was required for testing for what he thought might be an issue for me because my father had [heart bypass] surgery, but beyond that, I don't [know]."

"I am so grateful," she added.

Grant shared images on Instagram of her post-surgery scars in mid-June, updating her fans on her "miraculous" recovery. She also likened her ordeal to being "a non-runner who was signed up for a marathon."

"I didn’t want it, but I had to have it anyway and it was a week ago Wednesday," she shared at the time. "And as people heard about the surgery I started getting messages: 'I’m praying for you' …'I’m praying for you'. People I worked with decades ago, people who have come to my concerts or listen to my music, my work family, people on social media, and my own friends and family all offered their prayers."

"And so I want to say thank you to each person who said a prayer for me," Grant added. "Prayer changes everything. Let’s keep those prayers going for our country and lets turn all the brokenness into love and seeing each other. I love you."

Now, the star hopes her experience will encourage others to reflect and take care of themselves.

"If I have got something wrong, anybody could have something wrong," she said. "My message would be, take a minute and take care of yourself. You don't know that something is wrong unless you make sure it's right."
