Tuesday's Update, Moshe Avitan (Moshe Rafael ben Aliza A'isha)

Here's the latest letter from Moshe's mother-in-law. Extra prayers are needed today for Moshe because of the surgery.

Dear Relatives and Friends,

Here we are, less than 12 hours before the scheduled time for Moshe's surgery. It's nerve-racking!

Today Moshe asked the nurses to put a patch over his left eye. He is seeing reasonably well, albeit somewhat blurry, with his right eye but the left eye, lacking supporting muscle below, was causing him to have a sort of double vision. He felt better with the patch.

The surgery is scheduled to take place between 12 noon and 1 p.m. Wednesday. Obviously, depending on the operating "list" it could be earlier or later. Your extra prayers and Psalms are requested for any time you can on Wednesday, that the surgeons be given strength and skills from Above to perform the operation successfully.

Once this is over we seriously have to get down to the business of post-trauma counselling for both Sarah and Moshe. It is difficult to see when this could have started as Sarah has constant calls on her time from the medical authorities and to deal with bureaucratic stuff and Moshe seems to have doctors and nurses wanting to do check-ups at all hours of the day and night.

Thanks to you all for your concern.


May G-d give strength and good health to the entire family.
