Prayer Request: Sister in law and unborn child [from wideawake]

From wideawake | 11/19/2004 7:47:29 AM PST replied

Could you please pray for my sister-in-law and my unborn niece?

My sister-in-law is having surgery to remove an ovarian cyst, and she is 5 and 1/2 months pregnant with my little niece. She has another little girl at home. There is a story attached to that.

My sister-in-law worked at the WTC, at Cantor Fitzgerald on the 108th floor. All of her coworkers died on September 11, but she was out of the office in NJ for an obstetrician's appointment. Her first daughter saved her life.

Please remember her and her little ones in your intentions today - she may be undergoing surgery as soon as this weekend.

Rest assured of my prayers!!

Please remember this woman in yours as well. What an unbelievable experience to lose all of one's coworkers and now be faced with this surgical prospect.

I've had the same surgery for the same problem twice, although I was not carrying a child at the time. I have an acquaintance who has had that surgery in the fourth month, both mother and baby were fine.

My prayers will be that God guides your surgeon's hands, and that both you and your little one have a speedy recovery.

Our daughter just presented us with our 4th grandchild two weeks ago, a beautiful and healthy baby girl. When she was 7 months pregnant with this child, our daughter had an emergency appendectomy. She and the baby came through just fine.

When this same daughter was carrying her now-5-year-old, she had gall bladder surgery. At the time she was not quite 3 months pregnant. Because of the pregnancy, she could not have the "band-aid surgery" but had to have the major operation (apparently radiation is used in the simpler procedure and that was too risky for the unborn child). The doctors postponed the surgery as long as possible but daughter's body chemistry was getting severely out of balance and the operation became an urgent matter.

It is frightening to have your child undergoing surgery any time but especially when she is carrying a precious new life. I understand your fears and your concerns but I hope that our daughter's experiences help to give you hope and encouragement.

Mother and babe will be in my prayers, as will all your family. May God bless you and keep you!

[A humorous side note: daughter and her hubby have decided that perhaps they should have no more children ... daughter is running out of disposable organs.]

Thanks again to all of you and God bless you all.

Update: the surgery went smoothly and my niece's heart beat strongly throughout. Mother and child are doing fine right now and the doctors think that everything they wanted to get done was done. Of course there will be follow-up exams.

My wife is at the hospital right now and just called me (I'm actually home today because I had some gum surgery - my family is falling apart!).

My brother-in-law and my wife thank you for all your prayers. They couldn't believe so many people took a few seconds out of their weekend to pray for a stranger.

God accomplishes great things for those who trust in His Name.
