Ready for Surgery, Doctors Gave the OK

Sherri had her blood tested again this week to see if her iron levels had improved to an acceptable level to undergo surgery. She passed the test and is no longer considered anemic! The Laser Surgery Institute doctors also requested that she receive a referral and recommendation for surgery from a primary care physician in the Phoenix area. She visited with an MD this week, and he has also cleared her for surgery.

So, everything is a "go" now. The next appointment time available for surgery is in two weeks, so that is when Sherri is currently scheduled to have her surgery performed. She would like to have the surgery done sooner than that, as you can imagine, because her pain is still so intense and unrelenting. If another patient cancels his/her surgery, then she will be able to go in sooner. We are all hoping and praying that this will be the case.

Thank you all for your prayers in her behalf.
