We are always so happy to hear from folks. Thank you for all of your questions, encouraging emails and Facebook messages. You guys are so awesome!!
Here are a couple of questions answered:
Where are we these days? We are at Jon’s parents farm in North Dakota. This will be “home” to us while Jon gets his leg (next week!! Hooray!!!) re-certified to fly again and Lord willing go back to Papua New Guinea to serve with New Tribes Mission Aviation. That is the goal unless God shows us otherwise. Pray for us guys!
How are we all doing?
Honestly, it took us some time to get readjusted to life back in the USA. Coming back from being overseas feels a little like you got the rug pulled out from under you. You feel a little discombobulated (I like that word) for a bit but then you have to just get back up on your feet and keep going. Thanks so much to our family for hosting us during our recovery and wait time!!
We leave Monday for Mayo and Jon gets fitted for the C-leg. So excited!! But some concern we have is because Jon’s stump is numb he will have to be extra careful initially with keeping a close eye on his stump for any irritations that the new leg could cause.
We’ll need to look closely all over his stump daily because he wouldn’t be able to “feel” if anything felt wrong or painful. Please pray with us for his stump to take the prosthetic leg well! That there would be no irritation that could lead to infection.
We leave Monday for Rochester, Tuesday is Jon’s first appointment. As you can imagine I will have my video camera handy for his first steps with his new leg. Stay tuned. wink emoticon
