Tom took a turn with Amos at the hospital and said it was a hard night. Pain and vomiting and continued swelling of the legs made for a difficult start to the day but he’s doing much better now. I got to spend some time with my kids last night before I made my way back to the hospital to see my handsome husband today.
Last night Evie did a special performance for a big church group of 8,9 and 10 year old girls. I wanted to be with Amos so I sent my kids on their own. I got some wonderful messages from people who attended the event.
“You should be so proud of your girls! They show such love and kindness towards each other and Evie did an amazing job, not just performing, but sharing her testimony. It was wonderful to see them. We continue to keep you all in our prayers.” 💚 – Twila Ficklin
These are the things I love to hear more so than how talented they are.
Amos’s dad, Evan, is now here which makes 3 dads including mine. He’s blessed to have so much support. We also still have his brother Tom here and even his former babysitter Trudy Tracy who came a long way to see him.
Amos’s legs about doubled in size today again from swelling. I’ve never seen anything like this in my life. They felt so tight and I began to really worry. Tom and Dean got him up for a short walk down the hall and it really seemed to help.
He also has fluid in his lungs so he probably won’t be able to leave Monday as planned but perhaps Tuesday.
With all of his struggles it’s easy for me to worry. Heavenly Father seems to know just when I need a little help as I came across this scripture today.
“Words of Mormon 1:7 And I do this for a wise purpose; for thus it whispereth me, according to the workings of the Spirit of the Lord which is in me. And now, I do not know all things; but the Lord knoweth all things which are to come; wherefore, he worketh in me to do according to his will.”
