It’s Fall Break which means the kids have no school! I love having them home so much that I was secretly a little happy today when the car wouldn’t start and I couldn’t take Evelyn to her appointment with the surgeon. It’s so nice outside and being home with the kids on their first day of vacation sounded much more fun than sitting at the hospital. We rescheduled for later in the week since getting help would have taken too long and we would have missed her appointment anyway.
Our minivan is old but it does the job. I keep telling Amos we need a new one but he keeps fixing it and reminds me of the joy we feel in not having any car payments. He’s right of course and I’m grateful our old minivan has lasted this long. He’ll get a new battery for it when he gets home from work today. Hopefully it will be an easy install. I know that even in his condition he won’t let anyone to do it for him. He’s always taken such good care of his family.
Sometimes binge watching general conference for 2 days straight can leave us not knowing where to start when it’s over. This little car issue today gives us a chance to apply what we’ve learned right away.
I just got off the phone with Amos’s oncologist’s office. They accidentally scheduled Amos for a day his oncologist will be out of the office. They had us rescheduled for Friday the 21st of October to remedy that. Amos will now have his CT scan and labs the day before on Thursday the 20th.
His last chemotherapy treatment is this Thursday and we ask for continued prayers that the treatment and all we are doing will be consecrated for his healing in God’s timing.
We have another niece who will be opening her mission call today so we are excited to watch Carlie’s live stream tonight. My guess is Hawaii.
