    I don't know if any of you remember that I posted on the regular board about my father getting a colonoscopy done and that he will be having surgery. The surgery isn't until next WED, but I thought I better get my request in early since this is Thursday.

    I am a little nervous about the surgery and them finding it is cancerous and that it has spread. So, if you could all pray for the surgeons, that they would be thourough and look for anything and everything while they are there. I guess I didn't explain enough, he is having polyps removed from his colon and will have to have part of his bowel removed. Also taking the appendix while they are there and taking out his gall bladder because of big stones. He is 66 years old, so please pray for a quick recovery.

    I am very proud of him, as they also found an ulcer of some kind on his esphogeus and asked him to quit chewing tobacco. He has quit for 2 weeks now. He also did that with drinking and smoking. So he is very stubborn and can do anything he sets his mind too. He used to work in a sawmill and injured his back there and lost 4 of his fingers on his right hand. He was also in a car accident when he was young and lost his sense of smell, was in a coma for 26 days and not expected to make it. He came out of it, but his family says he personality really changed. He has always had a bad temper and would yell at my sister and I all the time, so I do have some issues with him. However, I don't want him to suffer. I don't know why I am going on like this.

    Anyway, I would appreciate your prayers. I will post a reminder next week. If you could also pray for me, I know the stress and long day will takes it's toll on me. We are going to leave my son with the in-laws, and my husband has most of the day off. Thanks again, and sorry it was so long. .....Billie

    My dad got through his surgery just fine. The doctor said the polyp didn't look like it was cancerous, but they were going to check it to make sure. He didn't see any evidence of anything wrong. I am very tired, it was a long day, but I wanted to thank you all so very much for your prayers, they were heard.....Billie
