    Default SIL Having Brain Surgery - Prayers Would Be Appreciated

    I posted some weeks ago that my SIL Barb was being evaluated to see if she was a candidate for the Deep Brain Stimulator for her central tremors. She was accepted & has undergone all the pre-surgery testing, etc. On the 17th she had her brain "mapped" & marked in prep. for the surgery. She had to have her head shaved prior to that procedure. Tomorrow she has the surgery to insert the wires into her brain. It's a 3-5 hr. surgery for which she has to be awake so she can verbally respond & they can observe her muscle movements. She's having the surgery at Vanderbilt in Nashville, where I understand they do more of these surgeries than any other hosp. in the country. Her surgery is at 12 noon Central Time. Please pray for skill for the surgeons in wire placement, that things will go smoothly, that the surgery will be effective, & there won't be any post-operative complications. She has to stay overnight in the hosp. & should be able to go home the next day. Her dau. is her caregiver & is pretty stressed out by everything. Pray for her peace while she waits during the surgery. She will be taking care of her at home.

    She'll need another surgery next mo. to place the control unit in her upper chest.

    There are videos on YouTube & info. on the web if you're interested in learning more about DBS.

    Thanks for your thoughts & prayers.

    Had to stop and catch my breath on that one, Joy. Most definitely prayers for the whole family. I'll say a special one tomorrow as she heads to the OR.

    Of course I'll be praying for you all...
    May the road rise up to meet you...
    May the wind be always at your back...
    May you be in Heaven a half hour before the Devil knows you're dead...
