Just sitting here in awe tonight at how quickly things have happened in just a week and a half.
Jon’s recovering from his second surgery. He was tired and pale. His pulse rate stayed high, so he did have to get two units of blood yesterday as his hemoglobin got low after losing a lot of blood in surgery and having some drainage from his stump.
But today Jon was perky, had more color and was thrilled to have the prosthetics team make a cast mold to make his temporary prosthetic. It should be ready Monday. After what seems like a long time (it’s been 5.5 months) to be seeing a light at the end of this crazy tunnel, is just thrilling!!!
We are just so thankful to God for His direction to come here to Mayo, paving the way for us and allowing things to fall into place. And then blessing us on top of all that with visits with very much missed family and friends back here in the States!!
Honestly you guys, we are exhausted after the traveling, surgery and just recovering from everything! So if you could, please pray for us, for renewed strength to be able to start this next phase of this long road that would be appreciated.
We’ve been blown away by all the love, prayers, support from everyone! Thank you again. Sometimes just saying thank you seems like it just doesn’t express it well enough. But guys I’m too tired to think of how else to say it.
“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” (Hebrews 11:6 NKJV)
