Doctors and Prayer

I recently had knee surgery at Duke. Dr. Dean Taylor was the doctor (I found out he also does all of the knee surgeries for Carolina Hurricanes Hockey) and he is just the best. I was really impressed when he came back into pre-op before the surgery and asked if he could say a word of prayer with Greg and I. I said we would love it. He said a humble prayer and asked for specific blessings for me and my surgery which made my eyes water. :) He also did this with my brother Shaun two years ago. What a great thing to have a doctor who recognizes the importance of prayer and the Lord's hand in everything!

That is exceptional. What a humble man to realize there is more working in that surgical room than just the instruments and his hand. Thank you for sharing-- I hope you are guys are having a great week!
