Please Pray for My Brother

My brother is headed to the OR tomorrow to have pins and rods placed in his arm.  He had an accident this weekend that resulted in the tip of his wrist being broken.  The first doctor he saw was not sure of the severity of the break, so he needed to see a specialist that confirmed he would need surgery.  

I know that my mom is really stressed out because of this.  Poor thing... my dad had his hip replaced last year and I had 2 surgeries on my shoulder the year before.  She has had to nurse all of us back to health, I know that it is starting to take a toll on her sanity (which was fragile to begin with).  My mom worries about absolutely everything... and when I say EVERYTHING I really mean it.  Honestly, I have no idea how her nerve endings still function.  I have never been a mom, so I really don't know how it feels; but I still think that I won't sweat the small stuff like she does.

I know that everything is going to be just fine in the end.  I remember feeling so relieved when I finally had my surgery.  Even though the pain is slightly worse after surgery, you feel so much better!  He has had to live with the pain for 4 days, so I know that he is ready for it to be over with.  Anyways, just keep B and my family in your thoughts and prayers.
