The 26-year-old actor took to his Instagram to share that the 20-year-old’s surgery was a total success.
“2nd heart procedure is finally a MASSIVE success. Couldn’t possibly look up to this little/not so little girl any more,” Taylor captioned a photo kissing Makena on the forehead.
He added, “You are much braver than I @makenalautner.. Love you so.”
Makena previously revealed on her Instagram that she has tachycardia, which she described as a condition that causes “her heart rate to go over 300+ bpm.” She has undergone one other surgery for the condition.
Makena also updated fans on her own account, writing, “2nd heart procedure was a huge success! It couldn’t have gone any better. God answered 3 years of prayers today more than any of us could have ever dreamt of.”
We’re so glad to hear Makena is doing well!
