Son Headed for Surgery Monday

Could I impose on those of you inclined to do so, to say a prayer for our boy?  He will be having surgery on Monday for a blockage that has caused one of his kidneys to almost cease functioning.

 

Apparently he has had the anomaly since birth, but we only found out this winter when he had a sledding accident-- the subsequent tests and scans revealed the problem.  We consider ourselves lucky to have found out, and can hope for return of function of that kidney.

 

He turned 17 this week, and is keeping his chin up about the surgery, but is naturally anxious underneath.  We would so appreciate your prayers, and thanks in advance for considering the request,     Nell

Prayers for your son and a successful surgical outcome. Also wishing your entire family comfort in this difficult time. Our son had some serious health challenges at your son's age and I know how stressful this can be.

Sending prayers now.

I lost a kidney last year.

I was back at work a month later.

He will be fine, I promise.

@Oznell

 

I will pray for him. My son is having ear surgery on Tuesday. He's 30 years old & lives 4 1/2 hours away. I can't stand the thought of him going under anesthesia & not knowing what's going on. He's single & lives alone. So I'm leaving Monday afternoon to make the drive... This is his 2nd ear surgery in a few months. I went down for the last one too. I'm glad I did- he didn't think it was any big deal but the anesthesia made him nauseous. 

 

I'm sure your son's surgery will go just fine. It's amazing how high tech everything is these days. They'll take good care of him. Glad the problem was discovered so it can be taken care of. Good luck to your son!
