Please Pray For Rosa...

*update.... Rosa is home safe and sound. The surgery was a success, and she is now resting. Continue to pray for healing and good results from the testing of the lymphnodes. Today Rosa will have her mastectomy. They have squeezed her in so it will be done as day surgery and she will be sent home after some time in the recovery room. She is incredibly strong and has incredible peace about her decision. Please pray that the doctor is able to do all that she needs to do, and that she won't find that it has spread to the lymphnodes. Please pray for Henry and the girls, who are doing well so far, but for whom today may be rather scary. She does not wish to be alone during her weeks of recovery at home so please pray that we who visit her will be of help and comfort to her, and that we would not make her laugh! As good as laughing is, it's not so helpful for incisions. We have laughed a good bit together about nipples on ice and the like, confident that the Great Healer will hold her close and restore her to health.

Rosa, you are so very loved and will not be far from our minds today, especially at 11:45. We will pray that the doctors hands are sure and steady, and that you get some good drugs for recovery! May this just be a bump in the road... Posted by Picasa

I'm saying a prayer for Rosa and her family. I can tell just by her picture that she has a beautiful spirit. I pray God heals her and comforts her and her family. You're a good friend.

(I like your new template very much.)
