BACK WITH A PRAYER REQUEST---

You KNEW something
would drag me back
to blogging
didn't you?

Well, it is my dear friend, 
JETTIE.
I know you won't believe this
looking at that baby face
but she is in her 70s!
YES.SHE.IS
(disgusting, isn't it to look that young at that age)

Once again she is having surgery
tomorrow morning
on her hip for an infection
that has never fully cleared up.
I believe this is her 
SEVENTH SURGERY
on her hip-in about a year's time.


This time they are taking the
hip replacement part out
and putting in an antibiotic 'spacer'.

I believe that will be in for about
SIX WEEKS OR SO
and then she will have another
surgery!

Please pray for a successful surgery
AND 
for her spirits.
I can't begin to imagine how
discouraging this must be.

If you are NOT a person that prays
please wing good thoughts
and healing wishes her way.

I have other requests coming up
but needed to get this one out today.

Thank you all so much!
This is such a 
GREAT GROUP-
You all have no idea how special
YOU are!

Diana,
Thanks so much for stopping by!! Happy New Year to you and your family! Sending prayers for Jettie...The best thing for them to do is to take out the replacement joint, put in the spacer, administer IV antibiotics for a few weeks to get rid of the infection in the joint and then when all is cleared up, put in a new replacement joint. Disheartening for sure...
Hugs,
Deb

Lisa said...

WOW she does look like a baby. I want to know her beauty secret.
I will say a little prayer for her.
Hugs

Jettie said...

Thank you so much, I appreciate all prayers. This is surgery #6, hopefully only one more after this, to replace the hip for the last time. I am confident in my doctor, and hope you will pray for him too.

Susie said...

Diana, You know I will pray for Jettie, I am a believer in the power of prayer. The more prayers the better. I am praying the dr. can get her back to good health and do a successful surgery after this. Blessings to you Diana, you know you help so many of us. xoxo,love, Susie

We had a friend that had a similar problem with his knee. After the procedure he’s recovered.
Sending healing thoughts to you friend.

Diane I will pray for Jettie ~ A very sweet and young face. Sorry I have not been around. A crazy year of 5 hospital stays and 45 doctor appointments for my dearest. And a crashed computer.
But a new year, a new computer, and my dearest home now after a stroke a week ago. No paralysis...but much weakness on the right side. I hope to begin posting regularly...I know you've had a break from blogging too. You are a sweetheart to put out all the prayer requests. Love and Hugs.

I can imagine how dispiriting this is. I had my hip replaced exactly one year ago. The replacement went well, but developed a whole new set of spinal issues. My heart and many prayers are with Jettie.

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

May the dear Lord give her a successful surgery and speedy recovery

Pam said...

Special blessings being sent....70??? NO WAY

Ron said...

Prayers!

Ginny Hartzler said...

I am actually the Prayer Lady at church, so I will pray for her. Is she able to walk? Will she be able to after her surgery? Glad to see you back, but I am sorry it is for such a sad reason.

Terri said...

Oh my goodness, yes. Prayers sent.

Happy New Year to you!

Mevely317 said...

I can't even comprehend so many surgeries! And yet - in spite of the pain - she smiles. Prayers lifted!

Terri D said...

Prayers for your friend for a successful surgery this time! She sure does not look like she is in her 70s! I would have guessed early 40s. Wow!

Sandra said...

Prayers for that infection to disappear and for the surgery

Linda said...

Praying for Jettie.....

Sandi said...

Praying!

Kay G. said...

Special prayers for Jettie. And Diana, I agree, how can her face look so young? Whatever her ancestry, it must not be MINE! Laughing but crying at same time. xx

Donna said...

Consider it done! Prayers for all her caregivers and family also. If you know Susan Freeman from Ash Tree Cottage, she needs all the prayers we can muster. Shelia from Note Songs mentioned some information she had gotten from Facebook. I have not heard anything else about her health issues. xoxo

Oh my, I can't begin to imagine for a second. Prayers overtime her way.

Were going thru a tough and sad end of the year and new year as well. We've been a this past week spending time with hubby's older brother 3 hours away, who is dying of a extremely aggressive cancer which is spread all over his body. He was in pain and now he is dying slowly. We have been praying so our dear God takes him with him, where he'll be free of pain and discomfort. My BIL Gustavo is such a believer that he'll go straight to heaven. Please pray for him too.
I will pray for the 'youthful lady.' My God so much operations she must endure !
Hope you have a wonderful and healthy 2020 dear friend.
Love,
Fabby

So sweet of you Diana to make this post and I will pray for your sweet friend. Sounds really complicated and frustrating what she is going through with her hip.
Hugs,
Kris

Carol said...

Amazing at how young she looks! I will certainly keep her in my prayers and I am glad to see that you are back.

Unknown said...

In my prayers!!

Dewena said...

Of course I'll pray for Jettie! I think she is one who often chooses the same table to sit at as I do when you have your entertaining table posts. I'm so sorry for the awful year it has been for her and will pray that this will be best solution and go well.

Bless said...

Will certainly keep her in my prayers for a successful surgery and recovery.

Pamela M. Steiner said...

I will definitely pray for "Jettie" and her hip surgery. That is so painful, and to have to go through it again. I have a friend who had the same problem because of MRSA. It was/is a very painful process. I do pray that your friend will have a better time of it, and that God will guide her doctor's hands skillfully. Praying for complete healing of the infection. May God be with her and give her strength to get through all of this. And may He give her peace and joy in the midst of the journey. Praying now.

Kim said...

Oh how terrible and so frustrating, I'm sure. Of course I will send prayers and good thoughts!

FlowerLady Lorraine said...

Love, hugs and prayers for Jettie. May this surgery be of great help to her. I can't imagine going through what she has and pray she feels God's loving, healing comfort.

Laurie said...

Oh poor Jettie! I can’t even imagine! Prayers that the doctors can fix this! Keeping Jettie in our prayers,

Connie said...

Bless her heart, she has certainly been through a lot. Prayers are with her.

Carla from The River said...

Rose L said...

Prayers spoken. You are so sweet to pass this info on. I have also been praying for my sister-in-law, Cindy, (she has rare condition of Cushings) who went through her 4th brain surgery to remove tumors. Each surgery 2 tumors were removed. They return. This last one done the end of November has affected her left eye and now it seems to be going into her right eye. Now they think they may not have got it all so she may need another brain surgery but we will not know for about a week. She is so sweet and does so much for her family, even in her difficult times! I feel like I am praying so much now for so many! And now praying for peace and a much better leadership for our America.

Gosh, Jettie has been on quite the roller coaster ride. Yes, praying for a successful surgery and prayers for her doctor at her request.

If you fail to do this, they may become sticky and clump together. Since there will be no definitive way to break them apart, this would render the entire bottle useless.
