All of our kids are such a blessing to us and Jonathan is no exception. He can be a bit gruff, bossy and grumpy at times but mostly he is a hardworking sweetheart who is developing into a real leader. I can see so much potential in him as he develops his leadership skills and is learning so many practical skills such as carpentry, mechanics, running a sound booth, business experience, music and more.
Right now I am simply very excited to see him feeling quite a bit better as this summer has been a rough one for him healthwise. He has experienced much fatigue, aches and pains, stiffness, trouble eating and so forth. At the emergency room last month they tested for Spinal meningitis and much more and came up with nothing finally this month they tested for Lymes and Anaplasmosis (another tickborne illness) and both of them came back positive. He is now on an antibiotic and is improving. We are so thankful!
