Just one day after we sent out our latest newsletter, talking about the “Surprises of Life” that God takes us through, we had another one come our way… Naomi fell and broke her leg too! Yes, it is true! For those following us on Facebook, thank you for all your prayers!
Naomi was just walking in her room and tripped and fell on a plastic toy cover. After that she was in great pain and didn’t want to walk. So Beth, Jonathan and Naomi flew to Goroka to our mission’s centre where the clinic is located. We had a weather delay and ended up in a different town in PNG at a different mission center. But we finally made it to the clinic for the x-ray the next day. There was no broken bone seen on the x-ray. But the doctor said that it could possibly be a “toddler fracture” which meant that they couldn’t see the break on the x-ray until 10 days after the injury. So a week later, Feb 7th, Naomi had another x-ray. The x-ray showed evidence of a break in the tibia bone, so Naomi got a cast on her leg at the NTM clinic. We were able to get tickets to fly home a couple days later, which actually was canceled. But we finally made it home the next day! And we are all happy to be reunited again!
Naomi will need to keep her cast on for 2 weeks. So Feb 21st we will have a cast removing party by putting her in the bathtub. Then the cast will peel right off! Please pray for complete healing for Naomi’s little leg. And we would still appreciate prayers for Jacob’s leg, as it continues to heal each day!
Thank you all for your prayers during these crazy times!!
