Please, if you can spare another prayer?

Sunday, August 22, 2010

I must take my dad to the hospital at 5:30 a.m. tomorrow to have the battery changed on his heart defibrillator/pacemaker unit - it will be done on an out-patient basis.

As always, any time the skin is broken, infection is a possibility.

Please, if you have a moment to say a prayer for my dad and just as importantly for his surgeon, it will be greatly appreciated.

I always pray for the doctors and tell them - so far this has been met with great appreciation by the doctors.

I will return to post the results tomorrow when I get home again. Although the surgery itself is only about 45 minutes, I expect to be out of house for several hours.

Thank you,
Love you all,

    I know if I was a doctor, I'd really appreciate the prayers, too. So, count mine in! Prayers for wisdom and guidance for them, for resilience and a speedy recovery frm the procedure for your dad. And for peace of mind for all concerned.
