Not being with Amos on our anniversary was difficult but it was also about the most special and memorable anniversary I can remember. Evie’s light shined so brightly that the whole world had a glimpse of the love we have in our marriage and our home.
So many people helped us feel loved and comforted today. I didn’t expect Simon Cowell to be one of those people but it was so thoughtful of him to publicly send his love to Amos. We have also felt that genuine love and concern from the entire America’s Got Talent staff and even other contestants and their families.
Amos fought all day to be awake and ready for the show. Thankfully AGT sent him a link to watch it since the Trump rally in Phoenix and violent after effects superseded America’s Got Talent in Arizona. His oncologist walked into his hospital room tonight just as he was watching Evie so Dr K had a chance to see her too. It isn’t hard to find a link to watch a clip but I suggest watching the whole show on nbc.com. They have an incredible tribute to Amos where they show him at the prison and at church as bishop. It was incredible from start to finish.
Amos is really struggling today despite his will to enjoy the show. The things he is enduring are unimaginable. They are considering a procedure that would permanently numb parts of his digestive tract so he could live with less pain medication.
Some good news…the ostomy specialist came and found that the blood in the ostomy was from a leaky blood vessel near the opening and not a perforation in the bowel.
