Prayers please

My mom is having emergency surgery tonight. This came as a huge surprise to all of us. She was taken to the ER today and admitted to the hospital. Her surgery is going to be at 9 pm central time. Please say prayers. I am here in Seattle and feel helpless. Brings back way too many memories of my Dad. Please say prayers. THank you.

SURGERY WAS SUCCESSFUL! We are so relieved and thankful for the prayers. Now we can focus on recovery. SO HAPPY about that!

OMG....I will say a prayer and light a candle for her tonight. Where state is she in?

I am so sorry you are having to go through this. I have been in the same position and you feel helpless. But you can pray from everywhere, remember that.

Everything will be ok. Keep telling yourself that. It helps. You are a strong woman. I'm sure she is too.

Both of you are in my thoughts.

THank you. Leigh Ann, she is in Illinois. Her name is LIz. I am on pins and needles waiting to hear something, anything. Her surgeon is supposed to call me at home after the surgery.

THank you so much! Surgery was a success. My family and I are so incredibly relieved. This was somewhat of a blessing in a disguise because we discovered she needs to treat some other underlying issues as a result of today. My mom NEVER goes to the doctor and now that will no longer be an option. Thank you for your prayers. What a whirlwind of a day. My head is about to pop right now.
