Prayer Request

IMG_2198

Tomorrow is the day I will be going in for surgery and I would soooo appreciate it if you would cover me in prayer. Nothing brings more comfort than knowing others are praying for you during a time you can not do so for yourself. For those who may have missed my earlier post...I have a condition called hydronephrosis that needs to be surgically corrected. Below are some specific prayer requests.....

**For the surgery to go smoothly with no complication

**For the recovery to be not as painful as I heard it normally is.

**For my kids, especially Ella. She has never spent a night away from me and still carries a constant fear of losing me when I am out of her eyesight. Please pray for peace for her little heart and for comfort that can only come from Him.

**For things to run smoothly at home in my absence. : )

**last, but not least...please say a prayer for my robot. lol! The DaVinci robot will be doing the surgery with my surgeon at a control booth nearby. How is that for technology? Not so sure about this whole robot thing, BUT it will mean 5 small incisions as opposed to one VERY large one...so that is good!

My surgery is right after lunch tomorrow and will be 3 to 4 hours....so after dinnertime, someone will let Robin know how everything went and she is going to update my blog for me. I will be in the hospital till Wednesday if all is going well.

Thanks soooo much to all of you for your prayers....they are a wonderful Blessing to me!!!!

I will be thinking of you and praying all day! Sending special prayers for sweet Ella, too!

If it makes you feel any better, our surgeons use the Davinci all the time and have great results! My patients tell me recovery is so much easier than the alternative!

Love you!
Monica

I will be keeping you all in my prayers. I know it is difficult going in when you are worried about what will go on in your absence. Try to rest easy.....I am sure your hubby will take care of everything.

Please have someone give us an update when you are out.

Hoping you have a speedy recovery.

Lifting your family up! Praying that the Lord would fill the gaps in your absence and CERTAINLY that HIS mighty hand would ward over Davinci's :)

TanyaLea said...

Oh Michelle~

I am going to pray for you now. I'm amazed at how far technology has come in the medical field...I had no idea: a ROBOT!?! The good news is, that we will be praying God's hedge of protection over you and your body, and that HE is in control of the robot. And that NO weapon fashioned against you will prosper, In JESUS' NAME!! AMEN!

We'll also be lifting the girls up in prayer while you are away, and trusting that you will be feeling good and back on your feet soon. Take care and get some rest!!

Blessings and Hugs! <><

DaVinci? Amazing! It's crazy to think how far we come. My girls don't even know what a rotary phone is. LOL!

Can't wait to see an update tomorrow!
Hugs!!!

Oh, goodness... we will be praying for you. And I actually know what this is because I always have trace amounts of blood in my urine (I know, I'm a freak of nature), so I get asked all time if my family has a history of this. Wishing you a speedy and relatively pain-free recovery.

My hysterectomy was done via the Da Vinci robot. It was a very smooth and easy surgery.

I pray everything goes well for you.
