Jonathan did well in surgery yesterday. The swelling in his stump is reducing. His next surgery will be on Monday, when they will hopefully start to close the wound. A plastic surgeon will be there in case there is a need for skin grafts.
The doctors will be reading the MRI that was done on Jon’s knee. Pray that they will be able to see everything clearly. Pray that God will give them wisdom to know how to best operate on Jon’s knee. It may be a couple of months before they will operate on his knee.
Today the doctors started pushing IV fluids on Jon, as his urine output became very low. PLEASE PRAY that his kidneys continue to do what they need to do and that his output will soon be back in the normal range.
Adie would like us to PRAISE THE LORD for giving Jon a high pain tolerance threshold. The pain management team met with Jon this morning and noted that he is not taking much pain medication, even though there are many options open to him. Jon said that he does feel pain but that it is not unbearable, and he will ask for pain medication when he needs it.
Thank you for all your continued support and prayers.
