Everyone has been lovely – truly – stopping me to say they’re praying for me. It means the world. Here’s a request though, when you pray, pray specifically that any roadblocks to the internal review of the surgery be lifted, eradicated, wiped out, disappear.

No one discounts the dystonia diagnosis. There are numerous examples of deep brain stimulators improving the lives of people with this condition. My surgeon is highly qualified and experienced. This is simply new ground for my healthcare system.

So…please be specific. Pray that surgery proceeds as planned on February 20. (I’ll always take an “or better” option from God – so I’ll have my ‘go bag’ packed for February 13. You never know!)


  1. Thank you for this focus, Lori. May God move the hearts and minds of the decision makers so that the surgery can proceed on or before February 20. Feb. 13 does have a good ring to it!

  2. Hi Lori. I’m with you all the way and pray each day for this procedure to proceed and be successful. God bless, my friend!

  3. So good to know you have a wonderful, experienced doctor! I pray the hospital is on board with everything and all systems are go.

  4. Not only do you, I’m sure, have SMART goals, you have guided us to offer SMART prayers. specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time specific.
    This is my pleasure to do.

  5. Lori I am in total agreement of this specific prayer! Miracles happen everyday!! May God send his holy spirit to relieve you of all anxiety.

  6. I’m really glad that you have set up a way to keep us up on the happenings and give us an opportunity to tell you how much we are thinking strong thoughts for you and being really really specific in our hope!

  7. Lori, I will absolutely be praying for all your concerns as you prepare for your upcoming surgery. God is good and loves for us to bring our heart’s concerns to him in prayer. And all your sisters in Washington love you, so it’s a win-win!❤️ I just found you on IG and am absolutely loving all your beautiful art!! Very inspiring!
