With permission from my mother, I would like to ask for prayer for her. My mother has struggled for years with her weight. She has tried to lose weight and has lost some, but then gains it right back. She has a lot of health problems working against her. Her struggles began after I was born (sorry, Mom!). Our family has worried a lot about her health....especially since she's had Type 2 Diabetes for the last few years. It's to the point now where we feel like drastic measures need to be taken. I need my Mom. I love her so much and I can't imagine not having her around. And Ethan LOVES his Mamaw! I want her to be here on his wedding day!
Over the last year my parents have made preparations for Mom to have gastric bypass surgery. None of us are big fans of these type of surgeries, but at this point, we feel it is necessary. Mom is getting older and we don't want to wait too late. They've gone through a lot to get to this point. Last weekend my mom got the final approval from the insurance company and her surgery is scheduled for February 10th. Please keep her in your prayers as she has a lot of anxiety over having the surgery, but some excitement as well. We are praying that her Diabetes will be completely gone by next year.
Thank you for praying!
