Skip to comments.Asking for prayers. Having surgery Monday. (Vanity)
Posted on 02/10/2012 2:53:59 PM PST by USMCWife6869
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.
Prayers for your successful surgery and for a full and speedy recovery.
Prayers up, may the Lord bless and protect you and guide your caretakers.
prayers lifted for you right now! Please Lord, rain down Your comfort, mercy and grace on this daughter who beseeches You! Be with her in her time of need, and give her confidence that this surgery will go very well. Bless the surgeons and caregivers around her; bless her family as they wait and care for her. Thank you, Lord! Amen!
Have faith and you will be fine.
I will remember you tonight in my prayers.
My prayers are with you. Hope you have help once you get home from the hospital. I will pray you have a speedy recovery.
I put my prayers with the others on this thread and lift you up to our Lord in prayer. Dear Father God, we come before you in praise and worship. Thank you for allowing us to make our requests known to you, to ask you for our needs and wants. We thank you and praise you for caring about us, and about every detail of our lives. I lift up USMCWife6869 and ask that you calm her heart and give her your peace that passes all understanding. Please put your big arms around her and let her know just how much you love her and are in control of this situation. We ask that you heal her and restore her to her family. Please guide the doctors and other medical personnel as she goes through this surgery Monday and let it go smoothly and just as it should. We love you and praise you for answering our prayer, and it is in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
Thank you Maria. It really is amazing. The grace of God is awe inspiring and comforting. My condolences on your husband. I don’t have any idea how I would get by with out my wife. We just have to believe in the Resurrection and understand they are in a far better place. I know my mom is happy to be reunited with her husband. Not a doubt in my mind. Last saturday mom was on a ventilator after taking a turn for the worse. ICU tried everything. She fought hard at our urging. After 2 hours of this my wife and I whispered in her ear she was allowed to join her husband and she flat lined in less than 2 seconds. ICU Nurse said she had goose bumps and freaked out. Was amazing.
Went to the funeral home today and expected to have a closed casket viewing. It wasnt needed. She was beautiful. Very talented folks made her look like she was simply sleeping. Her obit described her as as a prayer warrior and student of the Bible. It would have made her proud.
I am well blessed.
Prayers for a successful surgery and speedy recovery. Please keep us informed.
I am so sorry about the passing of your mother. May God comfort you and your family.
You are in my prayers, also the doctors and nurses that will be helping you.
So sorry for the loss of your mother.
Prayers and hugs.
Prayers have been sent for comfort, strength, and a speedy recovery.
Wow. Good luck and God bless.
I’ll say a rosary for you.
Prayers for peace of mind and strength for you ma’am. I am proud to help in lifting you up until you are able to rise again with purpose.
And thank you, for it is not only the serviceman/woman who serves.
May God bless and keep you and yours.
Good luck....prayers are with you. Stay positive. You will do well.
Praying for FRiends is a privilege. May God watch over you and erase all your fears. Keep us updated.
I will keep you in my prayers!
Praying for you and halfright as well. I am in the hospital now with my husband who has end stage cancer. You reach a point where you just know it all is in The Lord’s Hands and we are so very thankful it is!
He provides comfort in our time of need.
Prayers that God hold you in the palm of His hand!
Please let me add my prayers to the other on this thread. Be brave and trust in the Lord and the doctors. Focus on how much better you will feel in a couple of months, after you have recovered. Anesthesiologists have various ~potions~ and they will know your history so they can make the best decision for your particular case.
As an aside, I’m 5.5 months into recovery for a broken left hip. I was non-weightbearing for 10 weeks and learned, early on, that IcyHot is a great friend for your arm and shoulder muscles when/if they get sore from using your crutches or walker.
I can’t take away your fear though I wish I could.
I will pray for you, however, and know that I feel quite sure you will come through this okay.
I’ve been through four surgeries and can say they’ve got all kinds of fun gadgets to make sure you’re getting the oxygen you need. Rest easy and give your fears to God. Prayers going up for a successful procedure and a comfortable recovery. :o)
I will gladly pray for a successful surgery for you. May God impart his wisdom on your surgical team and send comfort and serenity to you and your family.
Prayers for you, success, and comfort.
Prayers for you and your husband. Thank you for your thoughts. Nice to have a FReeper family. Nothing is more important than family.
I now have a terminal illness myself. Pulmonary Fibrosis.
You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
