Dear Praying Friends,
We have been hearing from friends who wonder how Jerry is doing, or assuming that all is well because I have not emailed for a long time. Although I have desperately been trying to get out a prayer letter, it is apparent that won’t happen until after Thanksgiving. Therefore I will at least get out a short email.
The stitches in the incision on his upper left arm were removed on October 30. Since that day there are two sites within the incision which continually bleed. This has involved many trips to the doctor, constant wound dressing, and discouragement. He has not been able to do any occupational therapy, but has had twice a week visits from the physical therapist along with exercises to do in between visits. He tires easily. I have been stretched to my limits as a caregiver, it seems, but the LORD constantly provides the strength I need.
We will be observing a quiet Thanksgiving at home. Our children are bringing food to us which is much appreciated. We pray that each of you will be blessed richly by the remembrance of all the benefits of the Lord so wonderfully outlined in Psalm 103.
Your prayers are greatly treasured.
In the Grace of our Saviour,
Jerry and Janet Matson
