Lord have mercy
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

Holy Unmercinaries and Wonderworkers, visit our infirmities. Freely you have received, freely give unto us.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

So far, the preliminary word is that this young lady underwent her operation with no serious complications and is on the path to full recovery.  I'll have more word to you when I find out more; I'm sure my priest will make a general announcement to the parish this weekend.
