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
