Reincarnated As A Mother

Sunday, February 3, 2013


We went over to my parents house for our Sunday night get together and
to watch the Super Bowl (which actually turned out to be a good game after the power outage).
We also had a visit by this guy... President Ken Firmage.
He is a pretty important person in our lives.
He used to be the Bishop of our ward - during the
time I was flat on my back in the hospital, pregnant with Kean.
He is now the Stake President (over several wards) for an area we don't even live in.
And yet, he was one of our first friends to come to the hospital when Kean was first diagnosed to give Byron and I
blessings of comfort and hope.
I don't know if you remember, but he is the one who told me
that Kean would not only survive but he would surprise the doctors
with how well he handles the treatment.
Have we seen that come true time and time again or what!!!
I can't tell you how many times Kean's doctors have told me
how well he is doing and how they wish their other Down syndrome kids
would do as well.
So you can see why President Firmage is so special to our family.
And clearly, he is to Kean as well.
Last time Kean saw President Firmage, Kean was in the hospital on high
doses of Morphine.
Tonight when he saw him, he immediately held out his arms and went in for some hugs.
