I will pray for you so that this surgery will go well and that your body will heal good and quickly. I have had a hernia repair surgery done before...so, as a small part of this, I do understand. In my past experiences with surgeries, I've requested for my brown scapular and medals to be surgically taped to somewhere on my body prior to surgery. Some will allow this only if you asked. I've also have gone to confession, Mass and sometimes asked for priest to anoint me with blessing and oil....all this prior to surgery...it helps to be prepared and praying....Let us know how you're doing afterwards. Praying for you...
