Amy Grant has undergone open-heart surgery to help correct a rare condition, and she has shared pictures of herself in hospital.


Amy Grant is recovering after undergoing open-heart surgery to help correct a rare disorder and the singer is updating her fans on how she is doing.

Grant suffers from a condition called PAPVR or Partial Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Return. It causes one of two of the pulmonary veins to return blood to the wrong atrium.


The surgery which took place under general anesthesia was to redirect the blood flow into the left atrium rather than the left.

A rep for Grant told PEOPLE that she was correcting the condition which she had had from birth adding,

"Thankfully the doctor said it could not have gone better. We're praying for a full and easy recovery over the next days, weeks, and months to come."


After announcing that the surgery would be taking place, fans flooded to social media to send their well-wishes to Grant.

Doctors had first discovered she had a heart condition in February after Amy underwent a series of medical tests.

She revealed that she had been receiving supportive messages.

This week, Grant updated her fans on the surgery calling it "miraculous" and thanking them for their prayers.

In the post, she revealed that she had been receiving supportive messages and urged her fans to keep praying for the country.


"Prayer changes everything. Let's keep those prayers going for our country and let's turn all the brokenness into love and seeing each other."


In the post, the Grammy winner addressed both the coronavirus and the recent global protests, calling it a "crazy, broken, yet beautiful time."

She asked her fans to keep learning to love each other, adding that her unique experience of having surgery during the current climate made her more aware of the support from fans.


Before her surgery, the singer had revealed that while she was born with the condition, it had been completely asymptomatic.

Grant has been married to her husband Vince Gill for 20 years, after first meeting in 1993. Their blended family includes three children from Gill's previous marriage and two they have together.
