We got some great news from Amos’s mom today.
She is in complete remission!!
Sandi, Amos’s mom, will have two more rounds of chemo just to be safe and that’s it! #teamsandi #cancerisgone
Amos is so happy and it gives him a boost of hope that his nightmare might also come to an end.
We realized this morning that we had to leave for the hospital too early to take our girls to school. They don’t usually walk but we don’t live too far from the school. We told Evelyn to walk with the girls then text us to let us know when they got there.
We didn’t get any responses from her when they should have been there. We started to panic and I told Amos to go back. He finally got a hold of her and found out that it started pouring rain right as they were leaving. The four of them were inch worming to school hudled under one umbrella (since we only have one #arizonaproblems) so it took them twice as long to get there!
Evelyn ended up getting pushed outside the umbrella so she was soaked when she got to school. Sister Fuller, in our ward, was at the school and saw her so she went to our house and brought her dry clothes from her room. I can’t believe how awesome that is!
I left Amos for an hour today to get a healthscope analysis from my friend Tanya Howell. She is so wonderful. She read about my circulatory issues and had some ideas about what the problem could be. It was so cool to be able to look at my blood cells on a screen today and have her help me understand what is happening with my cells so I can make some changes. Thank you so much Tanya!
Amos’s immune system numbers are on the low end so he will need an extra shot on Saturday.
The great part about today was that we had the nurse manager, Mark. He was right on top of everything and got us done early. That means we will be done early Saturday to get the pump off so we can make it to go through the temple with my sister’s daughter McKenna. Yay!
His hands are not working right and his feet are always numb now so the doctor said to be very careful about checking his shoes for rocks or insects that could harm him without his knowledge. He says it feels like he’s walking in mud. When we got home from the hospital today his legs didn’t work at all and he couldn’t get out of the car.
They want to give him Gabapentin for the numbness/neuropathy, but he recognized the name of it as a drug that the inmates always want so he knows it’s probably easy to abuse. He tries to steer clear of those things. His mom said wild milkweed balm is an alternative. If anyone has had experience with that, let us know.
We love you Sandi and are so happy about your good news!!
