We are so loved! Today was long and difficult but coming home to this yummy dinner from Sister Lantz was so fantastic. <3 <3 <3
The barium sulfate upset Amos’s stomach. He had to drink it over the course of an hour before the CT scan but I couldn’t be with him for some reason. I spent my waiting-room hour alone on the Facebook political battlefield. I walked away injured but still alive. Actually my phone died so not really.
We have put a ton of miles on our cars with frequent hospital trips. On the way home today Amos said “uh oh.” I asked what was wrong and he said it was the service engine light. I said, “that isn’t an uh-oh.” He agreed.
Then the car lost about half its power and kept acting like it was going to stall out at the stop lights. We agreed that it was an “uh oh” and I started praying. I didn not want to get stuck anywhere with his ostomy bag filling so quickly from the barium.
We went several more miles with the same issues trying to decide if we should try to drive home or directly to our mechanic.
We stopped at a stop sign and the service engine light suddenly went dark. When he put it in first gear to go, the power returned and the car was back to normal! #miracles
We know prayers are heard and answered. That never gets old and we are so filled with gratitude for every blessing. Amos got home in time to change and get to the church for some bishop’s appointments.
Porter is teaching at a wrestling camp for elementary aged kids this week. He loves it. Thank you for getting him there today Sister Elwood and for picking up my girls from school and even staying so they wouldn’t be alone. You have no idea how much that means to me.
I can’t beleieve that tomorrow when I write this blog we will finally have some answers! Keep the faith. Love you all. #teamamos
