The Eye of the Tiger

Little Joel Belt of Jennings, who was diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension in January of last year, underwent a procedure Wednesday where a team of medical professionals worked to put a stint between two chambers in his heart to relieve pressure. According to a message his parents, Josh and Lindsey Belt, posted to family, friends and supporters following their journey online, the procedure went well and the family is praying for a quick recovery. On top of support the family has received from across the country, Josh Belt reported the doctor and nurses tending to Joel wore Team Joel shirts and bracelets during the procedure.
