Real Quick

This morning my dad will have surgery on his knee. It is a fairly minor outpatient surgery that should require just a few days' recovery time. However, yesterday at his pre-op appointment, there was some discrepancy among different doctors as to whether or not he should be having surgery. There were questions as to how long he's supposed to be on Plavix before having surgery of any kind and it depended on what kinds of stints he had put in his heart last March. One of his stints is the kind that the one doctor says Dad is supposed to be on Plavix for a year before having surgery. So it almost got postponed until next year, but based on two other doctors' opinions, they then decided to go ahead with it. Needless to say, the disagreement or uncertainty makes us a little nervous. So even though this should be a very simple procedure today, I just feel it is really important to pray for no blood clots!! That's the possible danger for him during this surgery. So, today I just want to ask you to remember my sweet daddy and pray for him with a daughter's heart during the next few days. I'd appreciate it so much.
