I just wanted to leave a quick note here to ask you prayer warriors to lift my dad up as he goes in for shoulder surgery Sat. morning. Because of dad's' history of heart problems , we have to report to the hospital at 5:30 a.m. for MORE pre-op, etc. Surgery is scheduled for 10:00am. Please agree with me in prayer that all involved will be well rested, alert, and that all surgical instruments will be free from bacteria, etc. The hospital is allowing plenty of time to do an EKG on dad, etc. His blood sugars have been terribly high lately. This could be from the pain in his shoulder reaching all time new levels of OUCH!! Also the cortisone shots can cause higher blood sugars in a diabetic. One Dr. isn't really on board with the decision of dad going on with the surgery, but several other Dr.s are all for it. My poor daddy has suffered from this right shoulder of his for several years, just thinking it was arthritis getting worse. Turns out, he has a very large tear in the lining and will be having his rotator cuff replaced. I'm so looking forward to seeing him without that constant pain which causes fatigue.
Thanks for your prayers. We are looking forward to sending out great reports at the end of the day!
Shane is psyched to be going to spend the weekend with Jungle Mom's son and daughter in law. I'll be spending time between my parent's home and the hospital. Hubby has to work some weird hours this weekend. My eldest son has his annual high school alumni breakfast and basketball game tomorrow, so that left Shane wondering if he had to spend the entire day at the hospital!! I asked my nephew Josh, if he would mind "babysitting" Shane. (Shane is eleven years old!) Josh quipped back, "I'll hang out and chill with my little buddy, but I ain't changing no diapers!" LOL He's a hoot! Anyhoose, Shane and Josh Vernoy have a special bond and relationship. My son's face lights up the minute he hears his cousin Josh is coming over or going to be somewhere with us. I sure hope Naomy survives the two of them!
Thanks again for your prayers for dad!
