Beans, I am so focused on my left hip !
I had my right hip replaced last September 13.
My left hip will be replaced March 27.
David, I was telling a CM friend today how I had hand surgery several years ago on Ash Wednesday and spent that whole Lent in pain as I was recovering from the surgery and also in hand therapy, working on new movement skills. I pray that you will be open mind, body, spirit to the surgery. I thank God that you recognize the gift of suffering that you have ben given.
Dear CM friends, old and new !
Last September 13, I had my left hip replaced. I did appreciate your prayers. This past winter was a rugged one. I had to work hard to arrange for insurance but, gratefuly, the insurance is in force, now, and I will be able to go ahead with an operation on March 27th to replace my left hip !
Yes, this is immediately before Holy Week. I am asking for prayers again. Mostly because I am a shameless beggar where prayers are concerned and because I need them.
I am praying for the grace to offer up as much of my pain and suffering as possible in reparation for sins committed against Church teaching on birth control and for my own sins and the sins of my family and loved ones.
Thank you so much for your kind and prayerful response...
I expect to be in the hospital for 3 days and in rehab for 3 weeks.
May our Lady bless you with attentiveness to the teaching her Son provides us!
Under the mercy,
