Jon & Milk
Being in this leg brace position 24/7 for
6 to 8 weeks, it is wearing on Jon.
Jon has been having a rough time since surgery. About 10 days ago, he started having some skin breakdown from his brace rubbing when he has muscle spasms. Then over the weekend before last, 4 of the 6 areas became full-blown, open, nasty, pressure sores. Since then we have had the area cultured and Jon has been on several antibiotics. I am pleased to report that all the original spots are showing signs for improvement and healing, but now he has 2 newer spots trying to form. Jon is finally getting more comfortable, but he is still in a lot of pain and especially at night. Last nights thunder storms had his muscles tense and spasming and he slept very little. Thankfully so far tonight, he is sleeping well. Please continue to pray for Jon.
Someone my mom knows blessed us with lots of milk the last couple weeks. It is lactose-free milk, but our kids cannot taste the difference. I've lost count, but I think we have been given 9 to 12 gallons. It was close to the expiration date so I froze it. The kids think it is awesome to have so much milk and they have been devouring it! Honestly, it goes so fast that I haven't even tried it. I'm constantly amazed at God's provisions that just shows-up...like the bags of clothes in our garage last week...what a blessing!
"Thank you Lord for leading people our way with supplies that we can use. We appreciate the gift, the giver and Your guidance in getting the items we need to us. Amen"
Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them
shall not fall on the ground without your Father.
