Prayers for Dad

Posted by Nance Crawford on May 22, 2013 at 11:25 AM

I didn't get the message until I opened email last night, but Dad will be in surgery at Cedars-Sinai at 10 a.m. today, about an hour and a half from now, for surgery. He's checking into the hospital right about now. Please keep him, his wife, Elinor, and the surgical team in prayer. If they find a Transcatheter Heart Valve implantation is not practical, they will turn to the Aortic Valve Replacement surgery through an incision on the right side of Dad's chest between the second and third ribs. The surgery will take about 3 hours.


Kind of freaked because I want to let everyone know to up the prayer ante but it's kind of a Crawford privacy thing and I guess I'm going a little nuts.


But I just realized how freaked I am and how much I am resisting even the thought of becoming a complete orphan. All I can pray for is the understanding that, whatever happens it will be the best result for Dad. Doesn't make it any easier for the rest of us.

Thank you all! I'm breathing deeply, again - not that I don't have trust - it's more that I sometimes have a problem with letting go and letting God. Human, that's me. Super-human (and that is definitely not bragging, it's more like disgust). Anyway, I'm looking forward four days to when he's ready to go to the rehab center - which will be very close to our house, thank God again.
