Prayers for my two sisters, please (heart surgery and mastectomy)
FReepmail ^ | 02-16-14 | AllAmericanGirl04

Posted on 02/16/2014 9:05:07 PM PST by Salvation

From a FReepmail I received today:

From AllAmericanGirl44 | 02/16/2014 6:12:51 PM PST new

Dear Salvation, I haven’t been on FR very long, have never done a vanity and haven’t asked anyone for anything to date. I’m writing to ask if it is at all possible for a prayer request for 2 of my sisters who are facing surgeries this week. One on Monday 2/17 for heart surgery and the other sister is on Tuesday 2/18 for a double mastectomy with breast cancer.

I’m beside myself with concern and know all to well the power of prayer. If this is in anyway inappropriate, I sincerely apologize. I was unsure where to turn in my time of need.

Thank you so very much, you are kind soul.

Let her know that my mother survived breast cancer twice, once in the 1980’s and again in the 2000’s.

They “sent her home to die” the first time since it had spread so much but the chemotherapy got it. She is still here and a spry 81.

Will do. My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer, had a partial mastectomy, and she’s just about to be five years in remission.

Please read this thread. Manger dog AllAmericanGirl44 needs prayer for her two sisters having surgery this week - both sisters.
Marcella

AmericanGirl, I will be praying for you two sisters - let us know how they are after the surgeries. Keep us updated. So sorry both sisters have to go through this.

Been thru heart surgery.

A few random thoughts intended to help:
- Waking up is gonna suck. Bad. Every fiber of your being will want to pull out that breathing tube, and your hands are tied.
- Keep a sense of humor. (First thing on waking, I told my wife “remember this word - fishmonger.” Her telling me that later, something I knew she’d never think of, assured me I had been awake and coherent then.)
- Thank everyone who does anything to/for you. No matter how painful, annoying, distressing, uncomfortable, whatever - thank them, for they have a hard job which is intended to make you better.
- Rib cage pain is bad. That’s the primary pain in heart surgery (assuming they had to split the rib cage and pry it apart with a car jack): pervasive bruising and cut/repaired chest muscles. Hurts. Transitioning from vertical to horizontal or back will make you cry just thinking about it.
- Percocet is a gift. Take it, faithfully, every 3 hours whether you’re in pain or not. Waiting until you’re in pain is too long, and it does take about 15 agonizing minutes to kick in. You just went thru ******* heart surgery, yeah you’re going to hurt, use painkillers.
- Nights in the hospital are hard. You’ll be awake at odd hours, staring at the clock, watching each second tick by for hours on end.
- Netflix on a tablet (iPad) would be a wonderful gift. Stick with mild comedies (”Children of Men” wasn’t such a good choice. Trust me.)
- The ride home is gonna hurt. Just staying vertical in a car uses more muscles than you knew you had, and you’ll be aware of every one of them.
- Once you get home, stop taking painkillers. Pain is a message, listen to it - stop doing whatever is causing you to hurt.
- Once you get home, you’ll do too much. CUT IT OUT. LIE DOWN AND STAY THERE. The pain is telling you to STOP ALREADY.
- I said stop overdoing it.
- No, really, stop overdoing it.
- Yes, walking around slightly hunched and ready to protect your chest is normal. Lasts about a month or so.
- You’ll feel a lot better when you recover.
- Thank God for every minute. You’re living on borrowed time now.
