please pray for my daddy

May 15, 2008 at 9:44 am 18 comments

Will you please pray for my daddy?  He’s having brain surgery tomorrow (Friday May 16th) afternoon around 1pm to install a shunt in order that fluid around his brain would be drained into his abdomen where it will hopefully be absorbed/eliminated appropriately.

We pray this will eliminate some dementia symptoms which neurologists feel the fluid build up may be causing.  He’s been struggling with these symptoms more and more over the past several years including a very disturbed gait, language issues (inability to say what he’s thinking), and memory loss.   So, please be in prayer.  My sister, Susan, and I are, needless to say, taking off work tomorrow in order to be there at the hospital with Mama and Daddy.

Thanks y’all!

    Tracey, I know you are with your Dad right now and holding his hand, letting him know how much you love him. I am asking God to be with the surgeons as they operate and allow them to restore him to a better quality of life. Also that He wrap His arms around each of your family and reassures you of His presence in this situation. May God let you know He is with you and your Daddy today. Love you,

    Tracey, I will be in prayer for you and your family tomorrow as you go through this time of worry. I know that YOU know that your father is in the best Hands that any us will ever be in, and that our Father will be holding your father in His precious hands through this surgery. If you get a chance thank your father for share with all of us the Blessing that you are to us. Dear Hravenly Father, I know that you are with this family and that you will give them peace. For it is only You that can do that. In your Holy and Precious Name Amen!

    Love you guys!

    When two or more are gathered in HIs name, we’re assured that He is there. Tomorrow, He will be with you and yours to hear your own prayers and give you comfort, but also He will be hearing your friends and family lifting all of you in prayer as well.
    He loves you all … and we do too.

    You and your family will be in my prayers. I petition our sweet Lord to surround all of you with His love and peace. I pray that the doctors are given wisdom beyond our understanding and discernment to know what to do to care of you Daddy. I pray our heavenly Father holds you all close and gives you comfort. I pray for your Daddy to have peace of mind knowing the great physician is in control and loves him deeply.

    Keep me posted. I love you and your sweet family. Vickie
