If you could please remember my niece in prayer tomorrow, I would greatly appreciate it. She will be undergoing fairly delicate surgery for about 8 hours beginning at 7am.
My niece came through surgery and was even able to open her eyes for a few moments shortly after being placed in the ICU. The doctors said all went well with her surgery and are hopeful that her stay in the ICU will be shorter than originally expected.
Thank you for all the prayers for her today. I know that they helped both my niece and the medical staff who took care of her. The recovery period for her surgery will last another 4-6 weeks and will include bed rest, so if you could continue to send prayers her way, she and the rest of my family would appreciate it!
