In Jonathan's Own Words ...

I want to update you on what will be happening this week in the Bartlett family.  Jonathan has shared some very personal things, and I would now like to share them with you.  Please check it out here.

We certainly would covet your prayers.

Lynn,

I am just reading this and it is Thursday, the day after the surgery. I just said a prayer for Jonathan and your family, for a speedy and speedy recovery and successful outcome. Please give Jonathan my regards and update us here when you can.

By the way, we know a girl who had this same sort of surgery a few years ago. It was painful to go through but the outcome was beautiful.

Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Greetings to all~
How is Jonathan doing today, Mrs. Bartlett? We've been praying a lot for him and hope he's recovering well. Is he able to eat anything yet?
I hope you're staying warm on this cold, windy day! I need to head to work in town in a couple hours and am hoping the wind dies down some before then....
Happy new year to you.
With love in Him,
Cora

Praying all went well with Jonathan's surgery and that he is not in to much pain. Give him a hug from the Montana gang and we're continuing to pray for him as well as you and your family.

Blessings,
Kelle

Thanks so much for all of your prayers and expressions of support for Jonathan. He is doing better every day. The swelling seems to be stabilized, and we are spacing the pain medication farther apart. We'll know more of how things are going after tomorrow's (Monday's) follow-up visit with the surgeon. I will try to post a report of the surgery soon.

One note: We were told Jonathan wouldn't have his jaws wired shut since they don't do that any more. HOWEVER, Jonathan's jaws were rubber banded shut instead! Needless to say, it's been a challenge to give him enough nourishment, since he has about a 1/4 inch opening between his teeth to feed him his liquids only diet. No straws allowed.
