You have the full might of my constant prayers for as long as you need them.
After all, I don't usually come into Discussions and something drew me in, and there was your prayer request, right at the top. Now, if that isn't powerful, then I don't know what is! And, an owl has very powerful wings and can carry lots and lots and lots of prayers.
And no matter who or what you may change into (or not), we will still all love you as much as ever, because nothing can change what is intrinsically our Karen.
I know I speak for everybody when I say that I am so relieved and grateful to you that you have told us what is happening, and also that you have admitted to yourself (mostly, but to us too) that you are scared. Paradoxically, it takes great courage for such a courageous person as you are, to recognise, acknowledge and then to admit to others, one's own fear.
You are an extremely wise person to realise that you can't do this alone and that you need our prayers. We are all part of humanity and humanity is all part of us. We would have felt very hurt if you had not asked for our prayers.
Now, you just try to relax. Smile at all this abundant expression of love for you from so many Pipsters - and while you are doing so, notice that it relaxes your shoulders - and if you let that smile sink deep into your heart, you will find that the relaxation will spread throughout your body all the way down to your toes - and leave the rest up to your current doctors, our love and prayers, and God's love for our wonderful Karen.
It will be hard, but we will all be with you every step of the way and you will recover and be back with us all in good time.
Once you have passed all the tests and had the op, take all the time you need to recover. We will be here waiting and lighting candles as you did for Marge.
Smile again - slowly and deeply - see it's relaxing
