Feeling Greedy!

I don't normally mention personal stuff but I thought that the more prayer for this situation the better. My 18 yr old daughter is having surgery on Thursday. This takes place at the Shriner's Children's Hospital in Greenville, SC so we will leave tomorrow as it's 6 hours from where we live. She is having her right foot amputated. I know that sounds drastic and it is but this will give her a new normal looking foot (prosthesis). I won't go into details but just say that this is a good decision and she is excited to be able to wear any shoes she wants! She's worn some sort of high-top tennis shoe all her life. I am confident the surgery will go well as this hospital is for orthopedics alone and they do this sort of thing all the time. It's the healing time and adjustment that might be difficult. She will get her prosthesis in 2-3 months so that is a bit of time to wait.
So my greediness is for your prayer's for her. Thank you so very much!
Yes, I am taking lots of knitting and reading along with me.

My very best wishes for you and your daughter and family - hope all goes well with the surgery and recovery and that your daughter loves her new foot (and new shoes too!)

I will definitely put her in my prayers.

I will certainly keep her in my prayers.

My daughter has cerebral palsy and had surgery at the same hospital so she could walk normally and get out of braces. She also had previous surgery at the Children's Hospital in Washington, D.C. for the same issues. So, I truly know how you feel. The Shriner's Hospital is a wonderful place and everyone was so helpful to my daughter and to us.

Hope everything went well. Will put her name on our churches prayer list. Surely with that many prayers everything will come out great. :-)
