L hip replacement surgery in September

12 May 2018 - 03:36 PM

Dear Lord,


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.

Surgery tomorrow

18 April 2018 - 11:52 AM

Dear Lord,


I pray that all will go well tomorrow. Please give the surgeon extraordinary skill + enable him to complete the surgery in a shorter amt. of time than usual. I'm nervous about being under anesthesia for 3 1/2 hrs. Protect the transplant, my brain, + everything else. May there be no complications + may I heal quickly + easily.


B will be there for a while. Protect her from relapsing since she just got out of the hospital yesterday. Her doc cleared her to be there for me, but I don't want to stress her.


TY that A can take me. I hate that she has to rush off + teach a class bc she couldn't find a sub, but at least she will be back in the afternoon. Keep her + B safe on the roads as they travel. Bless their interaction with one another.


May this surgery work so the esophageal ulcers can heal + the Barrett's can be treated. Protect me from cancer.


In Your precious name, amen.

Schizophrenic sister in hospital with pneumonia, sepsis, + UTI

14 April 2018 - 07:40 PM

Dear Lord,


TY for protecting B from having a heart attack. Her breathing was so labored it scared me. She's doing better, but has to stay in the hospital for about a week bc of the sepsis. She's getting IV antibiotics, nebulizer treatments, + insulin since her blood sugar is so high.


May she rest + recover fully. Please help her get her blood sugar down.


In Your precious name, amen.

Another endoscopy tomorrow-possible repeat ablation

09 October 2017 - 06:49 PM

Dear Lord,


I pray that the procedure tomorrow will go well + it won't be necessary to ablate the esophagus again. The last ablation was awful + it was 3 weeks before I could eat normally again. It made me weaker when I am already too weak.


May the Barrett's mucosa not have regrown; rather, may new, healthy + normal epithelial cells be present.


No matter what, I know You will help me endure.


I praise Your holy name, amen.

Daughter in E.R. at local hospital

19 September 2017 - 05:51 PM

Dear Lord,


I know You are watching over every tiny detail of A's life. Comfort her as she waits to find out the CT scan results. I didn't want her to get the dye they usually use for the scans but my message reached her too late. Protect her from any adverse effects of the dye or long-term damage. 


If this is a kidney stone again, protect her + help her to make any changes in diet she may need to make to help prevent recurrence. If it's something else, help her to deal with it. I pray for healing, but also that this issue will bring her closer to You + help her to realize how we are helpless w/o You + apart from You, we can do nothing. May she also be inspired to do all she can to protect her health.


TY, TY, + praise You for providing health insurance for her. I am beyond grateful.


In Your precious name, amen.
