SO...We Need Your Positive Thoughts & Prayers

Mom & I the summer before I was diagnosed

Me & my mom @ a fancy Pink/Red Hats Tea

Dblogville, I need your help. Actually, my family and I need your help, more specifically; we need your positive prayers & vibes. Tomorrow is the big day.
My mom is finally having her knee-replacement surgery tomorrow.
After months of being in severe pain, she has been cleared for surgery and will be operated on tomorrow.

My mom, former skater in The Ice Capades,(she was quite the Stilt Skater-seriously!) wife of a t1diabetic, mother of 6 (3 of whom are or were t1 diabetic) and Nanny to 11 (one grandson is t1 diabetic) & Great Nanny to 1.5 (.5 is due in March) is a strong, beautiful, wonderful woman and I love her more than words can adequately express. I want her out of pain and up and about, but I'm very scared about her having this surgery.

She’s extremely high risk due to heart issues and a family history riddled with strokes.
Failure is not an option and she will kick-ass in surgery!

But still..., please, if you wouldn’t mind, send us any positive thoughts & prayers you have to spare. And thanks a million in advance!
