Asking for prayers. Having surgery Monday. (Vanity)
February 10, 2012 | Self

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.

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.

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’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.

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.

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.

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'm so sorry that your husband is so sick. My husband had cancer and died 4 years ago. A friend sent me a book titled The Tender Scar by Richard Mabray. He is a Southern Baptist Doctor who lost his wife. This little book is an easy read that you can go back to over and over. I have given a bunch of this book to friends that have lost their spouse. Time is the best healer and it is alright to grieve. One day about a year later I realized that I wasn't sad anymore.

I now have a terminal illness myself. Pulmonary Fibrosis.

You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Maria
