>I received the following letter from Karla <firstname.lastname@example.org> - in
which >she asked me to post a message requesting your prayers for her friend,
>Robyne. Karla does not seem to realize that she has expressed this request

>Below is a letter from Robyne in Australia and my response. She will be

>I pray that everything goes well for you. It will be a very difficult
>procedure for you as well, I am sure. I would imagine it will take a
>minimum of about 10 hours....mine took 15....and they anticipate this next
>one being at least 10. They will be repairing my hernia, revising my
>urinary system and taking the muscles from the back and putting them into
my >stomach. May I ask how many surgeries you have had to repair hernias?
>Once again may God Bless you and be with you throughout your recovery.
>Please know that my thoughts and prayers will be with you.
>On June 21, 2000: Robyne Hinks <email@example.com> sent the following
>message to Karla <firstname.lastname@example.org>
>Thanks for your help I am now receiving mail again. They postponed my
>surgery from Tuesday until tomorrow, Friday, because he wanted to spend
more >time with me as he has to cut me from sternum to pubic bone because of the
>mesh he put there to hold my hernia - also to get at all adhesions and put
>the ileostomy and a gastric tube in. He said I would wake up in intensive
>care as the op will take a few hours. I am really scared because I have
>already been on life support three times before and I am hoping that it
will >not be necessary this time. I would like to wish you all the best for your
>op in July; and please let me know how you get on. Love Robyne
