mom's knee surgery

My mom has had knee trouble for nearly a decade now. She’s had cortisone shots in the past to help alleviate some of the pain. Recently she went to a new doctor because the pain had gotten really bad. She’s now scheduled to have a total knee replacement on June 25th. If there’s a cancellation before that, they’ll try to work her in earlier. Nevertheless, that’s a long time to wait. It’s a pretty serious surgery with a pretty serious recovery. She’ll be in the hospital for three days. She’ll have to have intensive physical therapy afterwards. With all of the people who have knee replacements all the time these days, I totally didn’t realize that it was such a big ordeal. Anyway, she is understandably nervous. Please say a quick prayer for her when you think of it.
