Update on Jon

I just got home last night from the adventure to Portsmouth and Norfolk. Jennifer and Laura went along as well, we spent a lot of time with Jon who is doing a little bit better than he was on Monday when he was taken from his base to 2 ER's and ended up in the ICU at the Portsmouth Naval Medical Center. He was discharged from the facility yesterday only to go back to his company and end up spending the night in the ER at the local hospital. He has a raging sinus infection, Acute Pancreatitis which is resolving, and something is going on with his lymph nodes in his stomach which is expected to resolve as well. He is on bed rest and trying to keep down enough food to take his medicine for the monster sinus infection he's been fighting for a couple of months. He might be issued leave to come home and be pampered (Mom's chicken soup can work miracles!) but we won't know until Monday. Thank you for all your prayers so far, and in advance for the future, we're all hoping for him to make a speedy recovery. :)

Glad to hear he's on the mend.

Oh my, I'm certainly sending good vibes for a full recovery. Make sure you're taking care of yourself as well.
