Prayer Request

Dear Friends and Family,

Thank you so much for all of your messages of praise and thanksgiving this past week! We are so thankful for all of you and the ways that we can rejoice together in these good things that the Lord is doing for Amos. I’m writing tonight with a brief update and a request for prayer. If you’ve followed Amos’s story closely, you’ll know that there’s been a lot of questions regarding his respiratory strengths and weaknesses. Whether it’s been the trach, oxygen levels, vocal chords, muscle tone, or unexplained pauses in breathing (apnea), there’s not been a lot of clear answers on the respiratory front. This has been a great burden for all of us to bear but especially Amos.

Today we heard from his pulminologist who reviewed Amos’ sleep study from last Thursday. This was just two days after the trach came out. As far as we can understand, the sleep study wasn’t a home run and there are still some concerns about oxygen levels and apnea. Because of that, Amos needs to repeat the sleep study tomorrow night.

Please join us in praying that this sleep study would go well and show clear, consistent, and positive results. Please pray also for Amos as he has come to greatly dislike the sleep studies, and for good reason. The sleep study will take place tomorrow, Tuesday May 16th, at 7pm PST.

Thanks so much. Love,

Kelli, Will, Amos, Lukey and Sam

“He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.” -Psalm 121:3-4

  1. Dear Kelli, Will, Amos, Lukey, & Samuel,

    May the Lord have mercy on Amos, and on us all: a good night’s sleep for Amos and you, a clear, solid, good result on his test, and joy in the morning.

    fred (for us all)

  5. Amos is not alone in his dislike of sleep studies. Both Victor and I have had them and hope never to have another. We’ll be thinking of him tonight and hoping for a good outcome.


  6. We will continue to pray for you all. And we will continue even ore prayers for tonight😍😍. Thank you for keeping your news up to date so we all can do our part. Until we hear next time- in Gods love


  7. Kelli, I’m so disappointed about the sleep study.. I want you to know I’ll be praying now and this evening ( I’m a night owl).. Also praying for Amos to accept no trach if it stays that way. It’s not unusual for any age patient to become psychologically dependent on anything.. even ICU! Thanks for your blogs.. So helpful and informative. In Christ alone, Daria Skowronski



  8. On our knees praying for Amos and this precious family.

  9. Will and Kelli – We will be (as we have been) praying. I have been through those sleep tests on several occasions and they are no fun. I cannot imagine how stressful they are for Amos. You know this already from your experiences for the past several years but, in situations like this, I am reminded of Samuel Rutherford’s words, “Grace grows best in winter.” May grace grow HUGELY for you and your family.
