Prayer Request

Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration

When I was recovering from my tonsillectomy, alone for the most part, things got pretty dark. After days alone, in pain, with little sleep, I felt like I was at the end of my rope. I’m sure all the pain medicine added to my dispair. I was never a Catholic, or even a very devout Christian. I don’t remember how I came upon the Franciscan Sisters’ website, but there I was. The Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration hold 24 hour, 365 days a year prayer. They have for many many years. I read that anyone who needs to can make a request for prayer to the Sisters. I was willing to try anything. I filled out the online request form.

I was told that for the next seven days, the Sisters would be praying for me. Wow! That’s powerful. I don’t care what your faith is- the thought of that gives great comfort. I needed comfort- badly! My recovery was still hard, but I took just a little comfort in knowledge that someone was praying for me. I also remember feeling anxious as the 7th day arrived. By the time it did, I was on the mend and knew that it was others’ turn to receive the prayers of the Sisters.

Prayer Request

People who know me personally would probably be very surprised that I participated in this. They’d be even more surprised to learn that I was posting a link to the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration’s website. I rarely even go to church. I don’t care. It helped me. It might help you.

So here’s the link. Check it out. I wish you comfort and good health.

  1. I’ve really enjoyed this website! Even though I’m on Day 8 of my recovery, it’s been VERY helpful. Just wish I had found it before the surgery.

    Greg, you sound like an amazing person. And I have so much respect for someone that will even post a link to a nun’s webpage, just in case it might help others. That’s what it’s all about, right?

    Thanks again for all your help and everything you’ve done to help others!

    1. Hey Travis. I’m so glad that you’ve found the site helpful. Day 8 was horrible for me. Hope it’s better for you. Take care!

  5. Hello all, I am on day 6 post op, 19 f. I have never endured so much pain and as a singer, I really hope the rest of the healing process will not be as bad, but I pray mostly for the outcome of my singing voice way after I’m healed. I am barely able to eat anything and my pain medication wears off so quickly that it does not matter to take it. Reading everyone’s comments really does help a bit, and I hope for a painless, speedy recovery to all on here

  6. Well on day 8 and woke up coughing blood again. Went to the er was met by my awesome ent. I popped a blood vessel and was severely dehydrated. Home resting feeling better! Prayering for anyone else who is going through recovery now!

  7. Help! I’m at my breaking point. Surgery was last Wednesday, 37 f. Yesterday and today have been awful, can’t eat only drinking smoothies, nothing will stay down. Haven’t slept in the last two days when I do it’s for a short time then I wake up and I’m getting sick! Not sure how much more I can take!

    1. Sorry Haley. This will get better. You can ask your doctor for an anti-nausea medication. They work pretty well. Otherwise, taking a little food or Ensure with your meds can help to.

      I pulling for you. Don’t get too down. Stay calm, drink lots of fluids, run a humidifier. Check with your doctor about the anti-nausea med’s. Ok?

  8. I had my surgery 5 days ago. And yes this has been a very painful experience . I want everyone to know that I am praying with you for you and for myself. God is a healer. I know there will be destiny at the end of all the pain, discomfort, smell etc. So just hold on and know that God have each of us wrapped in his loving arms. Keep the faith it will be all over soon. God Bless you al!!!

  9. I’m currently on day 6 PO. I can’t sleep as the pain in the back of my throat is unbearable. Prayers would be more than appreciated. Also I will pray for you Greg, I know you are done with the surgery, but I will still pray that God uses this website to comfort those who need it. God Bless Greg 🙂

    1. Benjamin, I’ll send up a prayer for you. I know it doesn’t seem like it’s getter better but you’ll be surprised how much better you’ll feel 2 weeks post-op. I’m one year out from my tonsillectomy (46, female) and only wish I’d done it years ago. This site sustained me (thank you Greg!) Hang in there – it will and does get better!!

  10. Greg – when we are that low, just knowing someone, anyone is listening to our despair and trying to help us is a very powerful feeling. I think it’s absolutely wonderful that you’ve posted this and I have no doubt it will help countless people I this site. 🙂
