Jon had surgery this morning to clean out the dead muscle tissue and all went well. He was groggy and out of it for the rest of the afternoon. He has a fever again and feeling sick again starting early this evening, but with meds and anti-nausea pills he’s feeling better.
Hooray for friends visiting tonight!! We had some folks from southern Austraila visit, former NTM folks that have helped us with our house, making visits to Jon often–Ole and Wilsy Otteson and some really sweet folks from SIL come share dinner with us: Noel & Catharine Carpenter, Ryan & Crystal Pennington, Jason & Jaime Brewer, and SIL nurse Morena!
So glad they came tonight! It was SO nice to see familiar faces and have some laughs!
“Oh, give thanks to the Lord! Call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples! Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him; Talk of all His wondrous works! Glory in His holy name; Let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the Lord! Seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face evermore! Remember His marvelous works which He has done, His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth, Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.” (I Chronicles 16:8-12, 34 NKJV)
