Tamela Mann, an American gospel singer and actress, has reached out to her family and fans for prayers for herself.
Yesterday, she shared a video on her and her husband, David Mann’s Instagram account, explaining that she has been hospitalized and awaiting surgery. The award-winning gospel singer said that she was getting her both knees replaced.
In the video, she says, “Today is the day, I’ll be checking in periodically to give you guys updates as often as I can. Send a prayer up for me,” adding, “I need everybody to pray. I’m letting you guys in to follow me and pray for me and to be with me every step of the way.”
With teary eyes, she says, “I’m real emotional. I may be crying a little bit. I may be here a couple of days.”
Doctors often advise double knee replacement surgery to patients who have moderate to severe arthritis in both knees. This procedure is also known as bilateral knee replacement.
Most people consider undergoing double knee replacement surgery because it is more efficient and convenient. Patients have to spend less time in the hospital and less time undergoing physical therapy. Also, it tends to cost less than having two separate surgeries.
Mann has launched her designer line of activewear. Her new activewear collection embraces the descriptions of style and comfort. People have been sending up prayers for Tamela and wishing her full recovery.
