On August 16, 2012 we awoke early to drive to Hershey, PA for Jonah’s outpatient amputation surgery. In some ways it feels like a lifetime ago and in other ways it feels like only yesterday. Just thinking about it all makes my heart beat rapidly, my palms sweat and my stomach ache. I don’t know if there will ever be a day when I don’t have physiological reactions when I think about it. We are thankful for the physical healing that has taken place in Jonah’s body.
There is much fall out emotionally stemming from his amputation. We would appreciate your prayers for Jonah, Joshua and our family to overcome the emotional battle triumphantly.
If you know anyone going through something similar, I wrote a small electronic book about Jonah’s experience, titled 9 1/2 Fingers.
