Today was supposed to be the family fun day but it was a pretty difficult one for Amos. Amos realized too late that he forgot to take his MiraLAX last night and it made for a pretty painful day but he did his best to enjoy it despite the discomfort. He won’t forget it again. We went to see Jungle Book which was AMAZING #fivestars ! We went out to lunch and the pool, made beef jerky with Grandpa Dean and had tons of fun with out-of-town family. Grandma and Grandpa Dance made some delicious dinner and the teenagers are going to a dance tonight.
Amos is pretty excited that he lost 10 lbs this week. Sadly, I gained 10 lbs. Both of these changes are unacceptable and will hopefully be remedied soon. He thinks he will loose another 10 lbs during the surgery. I will need to make some effort to stay lighter than him. It’s getting too close.
Several people have asked me if we are going to do a benefit concert for Amos. We most likely will since that happens to be our specialty. Our daughter has performed in concerts for others with critical illnesses and different causes. We didn’t expect to need one ourselves but it seems natural for us. I may reach out soon to some of our high profile friends to see what we can come up with.
As we begin to thank those who continue to reach out, we want to introduce you to Adeline. She is a family friend who had an ice skating competition today. She skated to Army of Angels, written by our niece, and dedicated her performance to Amos. Thank you Adeline! Family members have been designing T-shirts and friends and students have been having #teamamos bracelets made and distributed on the school campus where he used to teach to support Amos’s fight. So many of you have donated through the website and we are truly humbled by your generosity. I am at peace believing that he will make it through and I feel so much strength from you all.
