I will be praying for you, your family and your doctors.
I had major surgery in 2006 and I know how nerve racking it can be before hand. Once I got to the hospital the day of the surgery I felt much better because everyone who worked on me was so positive and I could tell they were true professionals.
I know when my dad had his kidney transplant they suggested he get a body pillow for home. That way he could stay in the same bed with my mom and not worry about her coming onto his side of the bed.
