Opera star Measha Brueggergosman recovering from double bypass surgery
Canadian opera star Measha Brueggergosman is recovering from heart surgery, and thanking fans for their support.
The Fredericton-born, Nova Scotia-based singer said on Facebook that she received the double bypass surgery at Foothills Medical Centre in Calgary.
The surgery comes 10 years after undergoing a similar procedure.
Brueggergosman, who turns 42 this month, underwent successful open-heart surgery in June 2009 to repair a dissection in her aorta.
The singer wrote that the latest procedure left her heart better than she “could have ever hoped or prayed for.”
