Default Prayers for my niece, please!

Tomorrow, at 10 am, my 13 year old niece is having surgery to get a cochlear implant. She lost all her hearing in one ear a few years back and wore a hearing aid in the other. In October, the same week my dad passed away, we found out that she had lost 100% in her remaining ear. She has been in a totally silent world since then.

She is having the surgery in Pittsburgh by the same surgeon that operated on Rush Limbaugh. If all goes well, she will have almost normal hearing in that ear and even be able to plug in an ipod! That's a big deal to a teenage girl! Please pray for Amanda (and my brother who is a basket case!) Much appreciated!

I hope and pray that she is well and recovering by this time tomorrow.

And to think, 20 years from now, we will be looking at those amazing implants as big, bulky fossils of the past.
