Jon is doing well today. He’s eating, resting & the only issue is a high pulse rate. Thanks for praying for Jon during his surgery yesterday. He stayed in the recovery room for over three hours trying to manage his pain. He was at a level 9 (on a scale of 1-10, 10 being the highest!) And Jon has a very high pain tolerance. Poor baby!
They were able to get him comfortable with a nerve block & some strong pain meds. He slept okay last night. Nurses checking in on him often.
The resident doctor visited him this morning. He said Jon lost a lot of blood in surgery and they’ll assess tomorrow morning in surgery if he’ll need a transfusion. He was very pleased with Jon’s stump movements, saying he’s got nice strong muscles he’s built up through rehab. (Go, Jon!) He thinks Jon should have enough leg for a prosthetic. We’re asking for God’s will to be done. Pray what ever the outcome we’ll continue to rest & have peace in Him!
Pray for Jon as he goes in early tomorrow morning for surgery again to inspect and then sew his stump back up. We will update as we know more.
Meanwhile we are happy with the care we are receiving here at Mayo. The boys are happily playing & enjoying time with Grandma Cam and Aunt Dawn Wester! Very thankful to be close to family again!!
