Update On Jonathan

Hi everyone,
Jonathan still very much needs our prayers. On Tuesday night, he was admitted to the hospital because both of his ears are infected and this infection has spread to his mastoid bone, causing mastoiditis. Also, because this infection has affected one of his facial nerves, he has developed Bell's Palsy as well. This palsy has caused him to loose control of the left side of his face, making it hard to for him to talk and eat. He is on intravenous antibiotics right now and is scheduled to have a surgical procedure tomorrow to insert a tube into his left ear.

We'd greatly appreciate if you'd remember Jonathan in your prayers. Please pray for his complete healing and that there would be no long term effects from this infection.

In Christ,
Benjamin

Thank you, Kristen! I'm glad to be home and healing well. There's no place like home! But it was good for me to be in the hospital because now I know what the experience is like and can be more sympathetic to people, like yourself, who've been or are hospitalized.

Thank you everyone so much for all your prayers, encouragement, visits, and calls!
