Celebrating Fourth of July & Update!

We have a new photo of John and Alyssa with their three little ones.
From Alyssa: Thank you for all the prayers and concern for me over the last few weeks. I have had a lot of you messaging me asking for an update on my health.
After visiting my doctor again, adjusting my medication, and wearing a 24 hour holtor monitor (to see what was going on with my heart) I have been scheduled to do the Electrophysiolo

gy Study (EP Study) surgery again. An EP Study test the electrical activity of your heart to find where an arrhythmia (abnormal heartbeat) is coming from. Once it’s found my doctor will be able to ablate that area by freezing or burning those spots. I had this surgery in April to fix my arrhythmia however, it has not been successful. My doctor said my arrhythmia is one of the worst he has seen.
I was diagnosed with super ventricular tachycardia (SVT) in February. There are many forms of tachycardia so I wasn’t diagnosed with AVNRT until April. I am still on a medication to try and help regulate my heart rate until the surgery.
It’s hard to explain so many details on here so I will try to get a YouTube video out with all the details.
I am very grateful and thankful for each of you, my doctor, family who has prayed for me and helped out when needed, and my husband for being my constant rock! THANK YOU! 😘


  1. You are in my prayers. My husband and my dad have the from.of svt you have. My dad had 2 surgeries my husband had one. And are doing well at the moment. I suffer with svt but controlled with meds. Sounds like your doctor and or great physician in heaven has you safely In their hands. But the way you have the custest kids. And they have great grand parents. Grand kids are the best. We have so far 11 and counting from our 6 children.

  3. The best to you and your whole family. Prayers that God will continue to watch over you and protect you. May the doctors hands be touched by the healing power of christ and their touch bring healing to you. Prayers to all the new babies too. Been a fan forever!!! Love you guys.❤❤❤

  4. My prayers are with you for healing and comfort. My husband has had an ablation done on his heart twice. We are three months past now and still no AFib. Fingers crossed and prayers it stays. Good Luck with your surgery you will have my prayers for you and your precious family. God Bless.

  6. My prayers are with you. I have had SVT for more than twenty years, so I understand what you are going through.

  7. I have had the exact diagnosis AVNRT, I believe it stands for AV Node Re-entry Tachycardia...but it has been several years from the second Cardiac Ablation. I have had absolutely no reoccurring issues. It has been 11 years! Best of luck, we will oray for complete healing and guidance of the medical providers.
