Prayer Request


Tomorrow, my Dad is having surgery to repair a hernia.  He has had this surgery many times and we are hoping this is the last time!  

One of his previous operations saw the doctors use a kevlar mesh to hold it in place.  My Dad, being who he is, loved to tell one and all that he was now "bulletproof."  Funny guy.

I will drop the girls at their various work places, and then I will join my Mom in the waiting room.

My Dad is in very good health, for which we are grateful. He will be several weeks recovering, and not able to drive.  He is planning on doing a lot of reading, but I know that he will watch a lot of talking heads, Myth Busters, and sports. 

Thank you for praying.

  1. Praying all goes well for you dear dad!
    My FIL has had a few hernias repaired over the years too.
    Mythbusters sounds like good plan :-)
    blessings..Trish

  4. My mother-in-law had this done, and it was successful.

    Since he is very likely either through with it by now or at least in surgery, I will focus prayer very specifically against any infection in the aftermath. I know that's always a risk with this.

    So... I pray a hedge of protection against it.
