Everyone is always telling us we’re doing too much and we need to slow down. Today they might be right. We had too many important things happening so we did them all!
As we knelt for family prayer tonight, all of our children were aware that dad was done. He had no patience or enery left from the frenzied pace of the day. As we got in the car to leave our last event Porter reminded him of the great day we had and that being sick and tired doesn’t mean you have to be grumpy. Amos said, “you aren’t wrong but you aren’t helping.”
Let’s start at the beginning… He couldn’t find his bag with his ostomy supplies this morning and thought he left it at the church so he cut out the template wrong and it cut into his ostomy. I walked into the bathroom when it was time to go to find him bleeding from the whole in his stomach. Not a pretty sight.
9:00 to 11:00 am Brazilian Jujitsu
The Acostas put on an amazing women’s self defense class for our ward so now Evelyn and I can choke you out.
12:15 to 3:00 pm Hospital
Amos had an infusion and got his chemo pump removed.
Recording 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
They don’t let the kids stay for the infusions anymore so I took them all with me to Stephen’s house to record Evie Clair’s new pop single. #loveyouonemoretime
Guitar Lesson 3:30 to 4:30 pm
Evie had a guitar lesson with Rick Dalton. He is the best so we try to catch him any time we are in Mesa. The fun part was that Evie has four cousins who happened to be in town who also took lessons from Rick and got to see him today teaching Evie. #K5
Christy’s House 3:30 to 4:00 pm
We had a few minutes to visit with my sisters and their kids and adorable grand kids while Evie was doing her lesson.
Ward Temple Night 4:45 to 7:00 pm
We love going to the temple. Amos said today his head was pretty foggy during the session and he felt bad for not being more attentive.
7:30 to 9:30 pm Family Party
We headed back to my sister Christy’s after the temple for a birthday party/baby announcement for Samantha/Cade. We also had to practice for the musical number for my other nephew’s homecoming tomorrow. This was the first time in a long time all 7 of us girls have been together. The tradition is for us to line up in age order and sing a capella. We did of course. Mom would be proud. #teampamalee
The men were more focused on the BYU game. Buddy said a blessing on the food and prayed for BYU to win the game tonight. Amos blames that prayer for the loss. By the end of the night Amos was asleep in a fetal position on the couch. Eddie even volunteered to carry him to the car. I would have liked to see that.
