Dear Friends and Family,
Thank you so much for all the love and prayers. We have needed them and felt them! Today marks day 6 of Amos being in the hospital. Will has spent each day and night by Amos’s side and has done a fabulous job of caring for him while managing all that hospital life entails. We know these things all too well…it’s not an easy task and certainly not under the circumstances, which include being quarantined to one room for SIX whole days!!
As of today, Amos is doing very well though still recovering slowly. The RSV virus and the respiratory infection joined forces to pack quite a punch, causing almost a week of fevers and lots of breathing problems. We are thankful that Amos has been given the care he needed and that he’s doing so much better. More than anything, this kind of illness just wears a kid out so he is going to be laying low for a good while yet. We do however hope to have him home tomorrow. Please pray that the doctors would agree to this as we feel ready to manage Amos’s care at home without hesitation and would love to be back together again. Please also pray for divine patience if this request is denied.
I have stayed home most of this time due to being sick myself (likely something similar to what Amos has had) and due to Luke not being allowed on the pediatric ward at the hospital. We miss our big boys!! We have all been intermittently sick the entire month of December and we are so ready to be well again. Please continue to pray for strength and health for each of us as we hope to be together again and have the chance to celebrate Christmas. Lastly, please also pray for the baby- he’s due on January 9th and we are not quite ready for him yet!
We hope you have all had a joyful Christmas.
With love because of Christ,
Kelli, Will, Amos, and Luke
