Mom is having surgery today

Mom is scheduled to have back surgery to remove the tumor today.  I am not sure the time yet.
This surgery is extremely high risk and the healing process is extremely high risk for her.  My family has
all arrived.  She made this decision and I am so glad she has such a good mind to do so.  None of us are
sure it is the right thing to do, but if she doesn't have the surgery she will be paralyzed with in a very short time.  I am asking for all of your prayers today.  Thank you so very much!

Hi Joan,
I immediately said a prayer for you
and your Mom and family...that you
would be comforted during the
surgery and a prayer for guidance
for the surgeon's hands and all the
accompanying medical staff. God is
good....He will bring this to the
best possible conclusion. You are
in my thoughts today.
