Big Day-Prayers Please

Monday, July 15, 2013

Tomorrow my DH will go for cataract surgery. Normally that is a simple operation and people can see better immediately. Not so for him. He had one removed 10 years ago and developed cystoid macular edema and has never regained the sight in that eye even though numerous retina specialist have tried everything they know to reverse the swelling and nothing helped. Hence, he is extremely nervous and of course I am also. There is a 50-50 chance this will render him totally without sight but also the flip side that this time there will be no complications and he will finally be able to see. The dr has waited this long because he too is scared of what may happen. He has watched him closely for the past several years and told us when it got to the point he could no longer see that it would be time to do the surgery. That day has arrived. He can not make out faces anymore, can't read even with a magnifying glass, cannot really view tv.
Please say a prayer that things go good and he will have vision in this eye.
Thank you and blessings to you.

    HI Pat,
    Sorry I didn't see this sooner. I'm glad to hear the operation went well. Fingers crossed and prayers too that the end results are good news. Big hugs,

    So today's the day... I've been praying about this surgery (for your DH, you, the surgeon and other medical staff) ever since you first told us it was coming. emoticon emoticon

    Philippians 4:6-7 "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, with transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

    Note, it doesn't promise any particular outcome of the problem....'just' the peace of God. There's nothing better.

    You all are in my prayers today.
