Danny came through surgery just fine.  Here is the e-mail I got this morning:

Dear Friends,

Thank you all for your prayers.  Daniel was in for about three hours, and the problem nerve was cauterized.  They went in from the
groin area only, not from the top also as I had indicated.  The nerve was in the left ventricle, which is the easier one to get at.  He spent four hours in recovery coming off of the anesthesia, and they are on their way home as I write.

We praise God for a quick and successful surgery.  The doctor says there is a 97% chance the problem will not return.  We’ll be doing follow up with the doctor here in Brazil beginning in August.

Thanks again for praying.

Mark for all
