And the vac dressing is OFF today, my friends!!! The doctors decided Jon’s stump wound looked good today. He now has a clear bandage that will be changed weekly. Praise God!!! It’s another step in the healing process.
Next week is Jon’s CT scan to decide if his left foot looks good and to decide on the crutches. After all this daily stuff with the hospital, what a relief to have things go to a weekly basis! He still has a nurse visit him daily until the docs clear him.
Today was a busy day driving all around town, so not a lot of pix taken. Jon had doc appts, rehab, and his home exercises. It ended nicely with me using the rest of my gift certificate at the spa from my sweet man. Thanks, Jon!! Dinner made and with some really sweet thoughtful friends and our yard was mowed by another very kind friend.
Seriously feeling SO grateful for the many folks willing to be such a blessing to us during this time!! So with not much to report now daily (it’s a good thing–it’s what we’ve all been praying for–for healing!), I’m going to a weekly post now. Pray for us as we are still learning to adjust to life, family, and normalcy–or whatever that looks like for us.
Also, some have asked about our future plans. They are obviously in God’s hands and we will go/do what He would desire for our family. Our heart’s desire is to get Jon back on his feet, flying again, and then right back to PNG to serve with missionary aviation. Pray along with us as we trust God with our future!
We love you guys & we thank God for ALL of you guys around the world praying on our behalf. Just know we’re still here– so please feel free to email, FB, visit, call, send letters, etc!
“And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it.” (Mark 8:34-35 ESV)
