Prayers Requested!

Monday, June 10, 2013

As some of you know, I've been dealing with high calcium for several years. No doctor figured out the problem until this past February. I have hyperparathyroidism, and at least 1 of my parathyroid glands need to be removed.

I will undergo surgery tomorrow afternoon. While the surgery itself is fairly simple, I'm concerned about recovery. I had major recovery problems after surgery 2 years ago, so am hoping this will not be a repeat. I will be sure to mention these problems tomorrow to the anesthesiologist, and I know my son (who is a neurosurgical PA) will be on top of things, too.
He just started a new job a week ago so is unable to be with me during surgery. My surgeon has said that she will speak with him at any time. Knowing him, he'll be calling her!

Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers tomorrow! Thanks!
