I’m not used to driving. Amos wants to be able to drive by Thursday. Just riding in the car is still painful for him. Getting dressed was fun. We got him a bigger belt which wasn’t to hold up his pants but to hide the fact that his pants weren’t buttoned. He wore suspenders to hold his pants up. His suit was already too big, but now that he has recently lost 15lbs, it looks even bigger on him. He was grateful for the extra room. He normally stays in his suit from early morning to late at night on Sundays. Today he got out of it as soon as he got home.
We fast on the first Sunday of every month so the money from the two missed meals can help fill urgent needs of families in our area. We also fast for spiritual strength. Today we were grateful to have a purpose for our fast. Amos and I fasted with a hope that it might regulate his insides. Eating and processing food has been such a struggle for him.
Amos made it through the first hour and a half of church, then needed to go home. He can’t stay in the sitting position for more than about an hour. I watched him struggling not to weep through the sacrament song In Humility, Our Savior. I can only imagine what he may have been feeling. I admire him so much.
I took Kirra home to take care of him then went back to play the piano for Relief Society. She had dinner ready when we walked in the door which was fantastic since our church is so late in the day. I love having children who love to help.
We have a follow up appointment with Dr. Gimbel on Tuesday.
All our love and gratitude to each of you! #teamamos
