Jonah is a trooper! We are so thankful for Jonah and the the huge blessing he is in our life. His surgery went well and everything is looking good. Fortunately the only thing that was wrong was the catheter not working, and that is now fixed. We still have to be cautious that his shunt doesn’t get infected after the surgery so Jonah still needs prayer! : ) The average shunt revision is four every ten years.
Our NS told us to basically get use to this, and that this is going to be our life. She wants us to be prepared. But it is still very scary. Doing any kind of brain surgery is never just a routine procedure. I don’t know if this will ever get any easier for us to wrap our heads around. But I do know that we will continue to invite God into our lives during the good times and the hard times. God doesn’t promise a life with out pain and hardship but He does promise to be with us, to walk alongside of us during these difficult times. God also calls us to be him in the flesh by offering support and love to the people around us. And we want to thank all the people who have been there for us and walked alongside of us during all of this. For showing Jesus to us and reminding us that he is right here with us.
This is going to be a lifelong journey and we will continue to reach out and ask for prayers for Jonah and our family. But we want to share our prayers and support as well. We will be opening prayforjonah.com up for others with needs for support and prayer. We get a decent amount of traffic from people searching on the internet for prayer and support and people also looking for a need to pray about.
