My good friend Elena Davies of Plano, TX, just outside of Dallas, had surgery this morning to repair a torn hip labrum. She’s been needing this surgery for awhile, so I’m glad she finally got it. She’ll be on crutches for a few days and expected to be fully recovered in the next 6 weeks. Please pray for a quick recovery and that she’ll get plenty of rest and TLC.

Steve has recovered well from his first surgery--in which the doctor did find the ulnar nerve pinched, and was able to relieve it. He was only on the painkillers for a few days, and has been back at work since Monday.

He's still scheduled for the second surgery (we're assuming there's another pinched nerve on the left side) this Tuesday afternoon @Mercy. Many thanks from both of us for the prayers!

My friend Raven Walton of De Valls Bluff, AR, who I’ve mentioned before, has some prayers that are needed!

She will be having surgery next Thursday to put a new pacemaker inside her body. She wore one on the outside for a couple of months while she suffered from an MRSA staph infection, but thankfully that has cleared out. Raven suffers from gastroparesis, which is why she has the pacemaker, as well as endometriosis. The surgery will also include a hysterectomy since she is unable to have children. Please pray for the surgery to go well and that her recovery isn’t too long. She’s a dance teacher and is hoping to be back to work in October. I’m sure she will greatly appreciate the prayers!

My husband, Steve, is having the first of 2 surgeries tomorrow; the second is scheduled for the 28th. They will be, respectively, above his right, and left elbows: "ulnar decompression", to hopefully mitigate years of damage (numbness and loss of dexterity in his hands) caused by countless attempts at pounding out wheel bearings. Prayers for his over-worrying wife, and prayers of patience for Steve, as he deals with the healing process, will be much appreciated!

A family friend from Jones County is currently recovering from surgery at UIHC. Joanne's recovery is going well and she hopes to be transferred to a skilled nursing facility in Cedar Rapids next week. I pray for Joanne's continued healing and am thankful for the skilled professionals who have taken care of her at UIHC.
