I need your prayers

moonphase(z7 Ga)May 4, 2008

I am not sure who believes here in God and I am not asking anyone your beliefs.I consider you all my friends.I have been wsing a while now,traded with so many of you and have enjoyed every second of it.I need your help now.I believe in prayer.I am a miracle already that came through something that I survived by a miracle and lots of prayer.I had a heart attack a few weeks ago.I have to have open heart surgery and have a mitral valve repair.The doc told me if another pulls lose,I have no chance,so I want to do this asap.I have one kidney that was functioning at 60 % (now is 30-35%)had not given me much trouble for 25 yrs.I lost tht other to a kidney disease I inherited from my grandmother that she died with.I have had a good life,have a wonderful family.My husband died last Sept.I help my daughter with her 2 boys,watching themo on week ends and in summer.they need me.Gardening is the love of my life.wsing is the best thing I have done in a while.I also love to paint and make crafts.I love to fish and camp and do that often-went fishing 3 times this week,caught alot of crappie and brim.We have alot of trout rivers here.I ask you add my name-Annette Dawkins from Dahlonega,Ga to your prayer list.If it is Gods will,I will be fine.I find out May 5th from my cardio when the surgery will be.I feel good about asking my friends to help me pray.God answers.Happy gardening I am trying to get all my wsd babies out before surgery.Daughters coming to help me.

Sometimes when I am out there gardening, I tell my brother who passed away in '85 to pass on a message to the 'responsible one' up there. I will be in the gardens for most of the day and will speak to him of you.

Wish you were here. I would hold you...

I hope everything goes well for you. My DH had his aortic valve replaced a year ago, and he feels like a new man. He could tell when he woke up in recovery, and could completely oxygenate his blood, like a 20 year old, that things had been bad for a while.
He went from looking "gray" for about three years prior to having roses in his cheeks again.
He's 57, and we expect to have a pretty good run at things now.
Don't be afraid Annette. Miracles happen every day. My thoughts are with you.

Annette,

I will pray for a successful surgery, a quick recovery, and renewed strength for you. I am glad to see that you have not let your health keep you from doing the things that you enjoy most. Having something to look forward to, can really help during your recovery period.

You certainly have my prayers. My Mom was recently diagnosed with heart problems and was told by the surgeon that she needed several procedures. Her cardiologist disagreed and said she's responding well to medication. My sister & I did some research about mitral valve replacement surgeries. Please read the following links and see if anyone in your area that does this procedure. It cuts down on recovery time. There are minimal restrictions after the surgery (you'd still be able to drive & lift more them 10 lbs.)

I hope all goes well, Annette, and I expect it will. Cardiac surgery has come a long way and is much better than it used to be.

Sending prayers and hugs your way.

You're definitely on my prayer list Annette, I've been doing a lot of praying lately, especially to St Jude. Prayer is so powerful, I have been prayed for over the past year and a half, and it amazes me how those prayers have been answered.

Keep your faith and trust in your God strong and never give in to fear. Just smile, knowing you are in His loving hands. It really worked for me.

I just read Annettes post and was wondering if anyone knows how she is doing now? So wonderful to see so many of you showing your concern and prayers for her earlier this year.
