I just got back from a date night in with Jon. Thai food & a couple movies together made for a wonderfully relaxing evening!!
Jon is now off his IV meds so his IV was taken out. Jon has asked that his pain meds be decreased and that he can slowly wean himself off them all together from now on.
Jon’s knee & foot are swollen as he’s laying it flat out more. It’ll take time before all of that settles down in his leg. His poor foot is so dry and wrinkly from his cast.
Thanks to Steve & Donell Trostrud for being willing to babysit the night before they head back to PNG! The boys have loved their time with the Trostruds. Steve made lots of really cool cardboard crafts for the kids: airplanes, helicopters, swords, shields, etc. Miss T & Mr T, as the kids call them, helped me with bringing the kids in to see their Daddy everyday. They both took the kids to the park, lagoon, and muddies and went on a train ride when they first arrived. Many thanks for your service to our family during this time guys!
Steven & Michelle Thompson arrived today from PNG & are staying at Johnathan and Candy Burns. What a fun reunion to see the Thompsons again! Michelle gives amazing hugs, Steven is helpful, and the boys are so excited to have playdates with the Thompson & Burns boys.
Pray for us as we have constant transitions and that can be hard on us, especially the boys. Next week starts a new chapter for Jon when/if he gets moved to rehab.
“And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” (2 Cor. 12:9-10)
