Prayers Needed For My Dad

My dad is having surgery on Tuesday next week on his neck. He actually needs a couple surgeries, but he has an aneurysim (sp?) and they are afraid that if they do surgery on one the other will not let him survive the surgery. However, the one on his neck can't wait and they have told him eventually it will cut his life shorter. I am going down to be with my mom (without children) and make sure my dad gets through the surgery and to the nursing home to recover. Anyway prayers would greatly be appreciated.

Oh no, I'm sorry Angela. All the best to your dad. Thinking of him and you too, I know you always mention what a daddy's girl you were/are.

Thank you all for the thoughts and prayers. I am most definitely a daddy's girl. Always have been. My dad has had a lot of surgeries, with most of them being either minor things or things I'm not overly worried about bad consequences. However, this is on his neck. And from what I understand the doctors are concerned he may not make it through the surgery, but if he doesn't have the surgery his neck will eventually take him. And of course then there is the fact that it could paralyze him. I don't honestly completely understand it. I will update when I can. His surgery is in the morning PST on Tuesday and I will most likely be at the hospital all day so it might be late before I update, but I promise I will. Oh and pray for DH too as he will have the kids all week while I'm gone. Wink
