We just heard from Debbie McDonald and are sending a plea for our readers' thoughts and prayers: "I am writing this letter in hopes that many of you will say a prayer for my Mama Brentina. She went in for colic surgery today and is up and standing on her own. As you all know she is not out of the woods for a few days. I know that she has so many people out there that love her I am just hoping that even half of you could say a little something for her.
