Prayers Please



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.

You (or should I say 'she's') got it!!

Please pray for my friend Cathy who's having knee replacement tomorrow also!

I just got home from the dentist and I had forgotten it was today, but I had already prayed for her once earlier. Tell her that I just said some more prayers after reading your post and will certainly continue! God bless! Suz

angelmeg, thanks for calling me after surgery. I told the girls and they'll be praying for her. By the way, it looks like (at the bottom of your post) that you have no comments here...I hope you see these! Maybe I'll email you just in case...it says comments 0 and you have a bunch! Hmmm.... My puter has been acting so weird lately...about showing what is posted or not, etc. seems slow. Oh well. Maybe this will fix itself. Suz
