Prayers are Welcome - UPDATED

Those of you who know me know that 1. I am not big on organized religion, and 2. I am not a non-believer. That being said, I am not averse to praying when needed. So, I am not being a hypocrite when I say that prayers are welcome. Mom is having her heart surgery this morning, and I'm a bit worked-up about it. I'll be waiting to hear from my sisters on her condition after surgery while I'm at work today. It helps knowing she's at one of the best cardiac units in the world, at one of the best hospitals in Boston. Some of you know that she had made some decisions late last week that I respected, even if I didn't like them. When she spoke to her cardiologist yesterday, she changed her mind. I'm glad she did. I will keep you posted. Thank you for the prayers. Updated 10:15 p.m. March 24, 2009: Thanks to EVERYONE for your kind words, prayers and thoughts. Mom's surgery went well today, but we are still waiting a few days before we declare it a victory. For now, she's doing ok, but please keep the prayers coming. I will keep you all updated on her condition.

You don't even need to ask! I am already praying for your Mom and I too, will be looking forward to your post letting us all know you received the good news that she is fine!

Waiting is the hardest thing to do. Hopefully, you will be able to stay busy to keep from going crazy!

My prayers go to your mother sisters you and family. Prayers help. I had a stent put in last Thursday prayer helped me get past the worry and I believe helped the Dr. do a good job. Had to have...I'm here:)

Regardless of what “you” believe, believe in your Mom and her choices in life. I know she believes in you.
