My oldest daughter has to have ACL replacement surgery tomorrow morning. This is the exact same surgery that I had seven (or was it eight) years ago, by the exact same Dr. She is a bit freaked out by it even though I have told her, and the Dr. has told her that there is nothing to worry about.
She will be home within a few hours and in less than a month she will be off crutches and well on her way to a full recovery. If she does everything that the Dr. tells her to do she will be fully functional in six months.
The Dr. is a member of our Parish. I am pretty sure that she saw him at Mass today, though I didn't ask her. I am sure that he will pray with her tomorrow if she asks him to. He prayed with me before my surgery. I will be there with her, and having been through it I know what to expect.
Please keep her in your prayers, this is the first surgery she has ever had to undergo.
