We love Amos’s new nurse, Jared. He’s super friendly and positive. He said he has been a home health nurse for a lady for 2 years who also had stage 4 colon cancer at age 40. He said she recently beat it and is cancer free. That’s what we like to hear. Nice job Jared! He fixed up Amos’s ostomy and right before replacing the bag, we got a knock on the door. It was my little brother Charlie and his beautiful family. He had tiny kids who we may have scarred for life with the sight of intestines. 🙂 Jared was very sweet to explain to my 5 year old neice, Clair, how an ostomy works. She didn’t seem too freaked out and said she wanted to be a nurse when she grew up. It was theraputic for both of us to have those sweet babies over to snuggle today. We also think it’s a amazing that Jared recently started taking the missionary lessons after being an inactive member for many years. We hope we can help him as much as he is helping us. #miracles
Our kids came home with more student-written letters for daddy. One of the students wrote ” I hope you feel better and I love you to death.” Haha!
Thank you all for the notes and bread and goodies and donations and thoughts and prayers and ideas and shared experiences that continue daily. We also appreciate our ward members who have increased temple attendance this month just to put his name on the temple prayer roll. You inspire us with your faith and service.
Amos’s bishop interviews went well last night except we realized we need to get him a bigger belt before Sunday. He has lost a lot of weight but he is still swollen and tender around his belt line.
Kirra and Evie have some exciting news we can hopefully share soon about being invited to perform on a certain unamed show on NBC. We’ll keep you updated on that exciting development as things unfold.
Tonight is date night! We are planning on some Chinese take out and a movie night at home if Amos isn’t too tired. He’s loving the pink body pillow today. #teamamos
