Prayers for my sister

She's been in surgery since 8 this morning. Procedure was supposed to take 2 hours and it's now been 3.5 and still no update. My mom and brother in law are together waiting at the hospital and I'm sitting by the phone feeling an ulcer develop as I type.

Positive thoughts, vibes, prayers, whatever you can offer are appreciated.

Thank you.

Thank you Clippy. Her surgery went a bit longer than expected. She's not awake yet. My mom and brother in law will update me when they see her. If all goes well she will be out of the hospital tomorrow. I wish I could be down there with them. SUCKS being far away. :O(

Appreciate all the prayers. Her surgery ended up taking over 3 hours. I spoke to her briefly on the phone, she's so out of it. Hopefully she'll get released tomorrow but her doctor said she may need another night to recover. It was a pretty common female surgery that ended up having some complications from severe endometriosis. The doctor didn't realize how bad it was. Poor thing.

Sending prayers and good vibes her way, your way too!

So glad she's okay! I just saw this. We'll keep her in our prayers.

Oh no! I am definitely thinking good thoughts for you, your sister and your family. She is lucky to have such a caring sister like you!

I've talked to her a few times tonight and she's doing well. There was a pretty decent earthquake tonight and the hospital is on rollers so it was swaying. Lots of aftershocks too so that's always comforting when you're trying to sleep/recover!

Thank you again for all your kind thoughts and prayers. The reason I post these things is because I believe it helps!
