Today has been a quiet day here so there’s not too much to report. I got to spend the day with Amos and he was calm and seemed happy to chat, sing, read, and participate in some therapy. We had a new therapist come today – the pet therapist! She brought, River, a big friendly yellow lab in to see Amos. We were both delighted to see a friendly, furry face!
Amos continues to look more and more like himself and respond in ways that reassure us that he’s still our Amos. We love him so much. Thank you for all of your continued comments, emails, cards, etc. We read them/show them to Amos and he seems to really enjoy hearing from all of you.
Weekends are quiet at the hospital and I think Amos appreciates the rest after his long week of therapy. I am so thankful that Amos had this extra week of rest and therapy before radiation. Please keep the following in prayer as we look ahead. We are particularly hopeful and prayerful that the posterior fossa syndrome would pass very soon!
-For Amos to continue to grow stronger and to recover his cough and gag, and vocal chords.
-For Amos to come out of the posterior fossa syndrome soon, even this week.
-For radiation to be a complete success and for Amos to be completely cancer free forever.
-For us all to trust the Lord as we look ahead to this week and starting radiation. May we not be anxious and may Amos have no lasting side effects.
-For Will and I to know how to talk to Amos about all that has happened and is happening.
-For patience and kindness for all of us as we interact with one another.
-For Amos to come out of this with a strong faith, confident in the great love and care that Jesus has for him.
Thank you. We can’t say it enough.
“For I the Lord do not change; therefore you, O children of Jacob, are not consumed.”
-Kelli, Will, Amos, and Luke
