Prayers needed

Friday, December 17, 2010

My mom had knee replacement surgery on both of her knees 4 years ago. She started having pain in one of them again this summer. After many months of PT, her surgeon ordered Xrays... Well! She's got a screw loose. PT can't fix that, I'm pretty sure. So, they are going to have to completely redo the knee replacement on that knee because a cyst formed and caused damage. So, if you would keep her in your prayers that would be much appreciated. She's pretty frustrated and depressed. She knows the pain and long recovery that's coming.

Soooooo, I'm going to go home to KC for a few weeks to help her out after surgery. I'll still be one here, no worries there. I just will have no sympathy for your "cold" in SA. LOL Although, I'm a tiny bit excited to maybe see some snow. But, now of course, I need to find where I stashed all my WINTER clothes. :)

Ok, so I just wanted to share that and ask for your prayers for my momma!

    Hey Sarah! Im guessing your already on your way to a "real" winter. Your Mom is blessed to have you on her side. I hope she feels a bit better after the issue is taken care of and that you guys get to spend some quality time together.

    I am sending some prayers! *hugs*

    Enjoy the snow if you get it! That is one of the things I know I am going to miss most living down here.

    Dang, I need to get on here earlier before all of the funny lines are taken! Of course your mom has my prayers and you do to for a safe trip. You may still be online, but your presence will be missed, knowing you are so far away. When will you be leaving?

    Elva, you just keep your little cold weather loving mouth zipped. LOL...unless we get snow I see no reason for cold weather!

    I know people who have had to go through similar type of knee pain! It seems so unbearable. I'll send some prayers your family's way.

    Stay bundled up and toasty in KC!

    oh the teasing has begun... my mom posted on facebook that they'd finally diagnosed her as "having a loose screw", and yeah... there were some funny comments.

    Count on prayers coming her way. Screw the others..that would be great "material" in our family. Hope you remember how to drive in snow. Yikes!

    I will definitely put your mom on my prayer list and will ask all my "prayer warriors" to do the same.
    As for the "cold" I haven't felt a truly cold day this winter yet (*sniff sniff*) I haven't been able to turn on my heater or just curl up on the couch under a blanket, it's getting kinda depressing, so if you could bring some winter back that would be great! K thanks!

    Oh no! My mom has had both knees replaced as well. Will be thinking of your mom and wishing for a speedy recovery.

    I guess I need surgery...people have been telling me for years I have a screw loose?

    I can still pray however, and will.

    Wow, I really feel for your mom! My dad had a hip replacement last year and the same thing happened...the pain was so unbearable because if the cyst. The good news is that once he had corrective surgery, he was better than ever. Once your mom has her surgery and heals, she will be good as new. You are such a blessing to her to be able to go and help her out!
