I'm in need

Not looking for sympathy. I am asking for sincere prayer and positive energy for my wife. She will be having major abdominal surgery with a day or two That has to be done at a facility that has the expertise, staff, and equipment to make the surgery as safe as possible. This is risky stuff.

I guess I could use a payer or two myself. I have to drive a couple hundred miles to the hospital where the surgery will be done, and I have been, at times, on the edge of falling apart. But mostly, I'm ok emotionally.

I wish all of you a great evening, and hope you can enjoy this time with someone you love. Time moves quickly. Don't waste a second of it.

Seeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

Chief, I send my warmest Aloha!
I had thought that Mrs. CLWOTN was doing better,
I hope that this is not a bad turn for her, but the opposite.
I will keep positive vibes going her way, as well for you.
I know first hand how hard it can be to keep it together sometimes
when the one you love is having to go through stuff.

Chief, sending my best healing wishes to you and your wife My DH was in your place two years ago. His presence and support meant everything to me. I know you can do the same for your DW. So many virtual hugs for you both.

Hoping for the best for your wife.

Make sure you take care of yourself throughout this ordeal. You need to stay healthy to help her. Eat healthy food. Get rest, even if you can't sleep. Go for walks when you can. Talk to people when you need to get things out of your head.

Oh Chief, my heart was breaking when I read this. You know prayers are on the way, and they will continue until we hear that she is much better.

Take care of yourself. And concentrate on giving good vibes to your wife.

Oh, Bob, I'm so sorry. I will say a rosary for your Mrs. every day until she's healed.

Stay strong, Brother. We are with you all the way.
