Skip to comments.Asking for prayers. Having surgery Monday. (Vanity)

Hi all. I think this is my first vanity. I'm hoping you all don't mind, but I'm asking for prayers for myself. I'm having surgery on Monday, and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't absolutely terrified. The surgery is a core decompression of the femural head in my right hip. I have Avascular Necrosis in both hips, likely due to a lifetime of taking Steroids for Asthma.
I have 3 daughters, and I'm so afraid of something happening to me. My respiratory history is awful, and both my parents died young, and it all just makes me scared. Luckily, my husband is home, and he has been given leave to care for me post-operatively for the first two weeks. I will be unable to bear weight on the leg for 8 weeks, but my awesome Marine Corps family is already rallying to help.
Everyone here is always so generous in offering prayers and support, so I was hoping I could ask for some. Thanks so much in advance.
Prayers for you and your surgeons.
Prayers for you.
You have got it. Praying that the God of all comfort comfort you and bring peace, healing, strength, and His presence during your time of surgery and recovery. And for your family as well. Be blessed...
I buried my Mom today and I found prayer was the only way I was able to get through it without breaking down. I will add you to the prayer list and advise you to put your fears in God’s hands and ask him to remove the apprehension. He will do it. It’s the wierdess peace I have ever experienced.
Put your faith in the Lord and your good Doctors through him. His will be done.
Prayers up for a successful surgery and speedy recovery!
Asking Lord Jesus to heal and comfort you!
Thanking God for hearing our prayers and loving us.
Prayers for you and your family.
May God bless and watch over you.
Prayers that you will be calm and the fears will go away. I’m asking God to set the Angel’s over you and to guide the surgeon’s hand.
I wish that I was near by, I would bake some cookies for the kids.
We an are active duty Navy family.
My prayers for you, your surgical team and your Marine Corps family!
Thank your husband for his service! Semper Fi!
I’m so sorry! My husband died a few years ago. Others prayers and time have been the best healers. One day after about a year I was so surprised to discover that I was no longer sad.
Prayers up! God bless! And relax, knowing that whatever, God is in control.
Prayers for God’s blessings on all for a complete and speedy recovery.
Count on a prayer from here.
Isaiah 41:10 NIV
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Prayers up, USMC. Surround yourselves with people who love and care about you. That would include us here at FR.
