Jon Leedahl Update – Oct. 23, 2014 @ 7:16 p.m. CT

1925166_10152502550847252_560354692258292103_nJonathan 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.

    Thanks for the update. Our day is just ending here in Washington state, which means we’ve got new praises and requests to bring to our Great King before we snooze. Love you guys, praying for a wonderful night’s rest for all of the Leedahl clan. Shalom, Steve & Lisa

  2. Jon & Adie,

    We live out in Gulf, PNG and fly in and out of Kanabea airstrip. I think we met Jon once on a training flight that came through with SIL. Our son is our pilot, Matt Allen, who flies P2-TMK (Cessna 206).

    Just a note to let you know our team out here has been praying for you both since day one, and to thank you for being such an encouragement to us. You guys are such marvels of God’s grace.

    Praying for your strength and encouragement.

    John & Lena Allen @JMAllenSr

    Prayers coming your way from Mike & Kay Libolt in Mckinleyville CA.

  4. Although I know it is really tough, it is encouraging to see your positive attitude and trust in the Lord. Having recently had a heart attack and triple bypass at 44, I learned going easy on meats and other heavy foods and sticking more to fresh fruits, vegetables and Bran Buds with plenty of water helped me feel better especially when I had to be less mobile than I was accustomed to. Praying for you!

    Dear Lord we thank you for every mercy as Jon and Adie wait on you, as the family are reunited, as the doctors carefully access everything, as Jon experiences all of this without a lot of pain medication. We continue to lay their names before you for particular blessings as you alone know best for each of them and each of their children. Place your angels about them, speak into their spirits words of encouragement, and bringing good healing to Jon we pray, Amen Love from Paul and Ann Eckert
