Could You Say Some Prayers, Please?

February 23 my mother is having major surgery on her back, with hopes to repair nerve damage from past surgeries.

She's endured hefty pain for some time now, and she'll be going a few hours away from their home so this specialist can do the operation. She'll be in the hands of Emory University's hospital in Atlanta. It's estimated to take about 7-8 hours.

My mother is a very tough cookie. She's had many surgeries.
I talked to her yesterday on the phone, and she is very nervous. Understandably so, but more nervous than I've ever heard her. I feel for her, and it makes me really wish I could get down there to see her before her surgery.

If you can, please say some prayers for her peace of mind. Pray for the doctor and medical staff. Pray for my father to see her through this.
It's times like this I really hate living so far away. Your prayers are greatly appreciated.

Absolutely, praying for her and also for you- not being able to be there is stressful!
