The L hip joint is pretty well obliterated d/t arthritis caused by long-term damage after a fall over 30 years ago. It is no longer manageable + there is a lot of pain, limping, + decreased mobility. At this point it seems there is no other choice or further damage will be caused.
The surgery is scheduled for September. Help me to get much stronger by working in the pool + swimming. Protect me from injury to nerves, uneven leg length after surgery, blood clots, infection + other complications. May all go well + may the surgeon, nurses, + everyone involved be given great wisdom, knowledge, skill, compassion, etc.
May I recover well + regain full mobility w/o pain.
In Your precious name, amen.
