Thinking of Panacea

A panacea is a substance capable of curing all diseases. The name of this unreal miracle drug comes from the Greek goddess of health and healing, Panacea. She was the grand-daughter of Apollo and the daughter of Asclepius, the father of medicine. Legend claims she carried an elixir of herbs she used to heal the sick. Seeing as she was a goddess, Panacea was able create herbal potions capable of curing any ailment of any kind.

My mother-in-law Nancy is having surgery today to replace a hip that has seriously betrayed her. When I spoke to her the other day she encouraged me to select a goddess to keep in my thoughts while she is in surgery.

Nancy, I hope my thoughts of Panacea and her ability to heal rush to your side today.
