  • Eve is in surgery

    Hello all,

    This is Ro, Eve's mom. She went into surgery at 10:30 a.m. It will take around 6 hours, so they said.

    She almost passed out in the hotel room this morning.....nerves I guess. She said it wan't heart related, that she can tell the difference. Of course I'm pretty much a basket case too.

    I finally found a computer that will cooperate with me, so I will skoot over here from time to time to let you know how it goes.

    Prayers and good thoughts are deeply appreciated.
    Grace and kindness make powerful ripples in the world.

    Thank you for posting the update on Eve. There are quite a few folks around here who will be checking in throughout the day to see how she is doing. She has many friends here.

      Dear Ro,
      My heart felt prayers are with you, your lovely daughter Eve, and all the wonderful medical professionals caring for her right this very moment. I ask God to send special angels to watch over the surgery and be with your to comfort you through this difficult time of waiting. Know that many wonderful souls will be praying for you and your daughter through out the day.

      Gods Speed!
      Blessings and Love,
      Sharon Bates
