To say the least, Amy has had a rough week. After being admitted to the hospital on Monday with severe tailbone pain, this lead to 2 MRI’s and the discovery of mets not only in her tailbone but also in her spinal fluid and brain. Not wasting any time, the radiation team moved into action and fitted Amy for a “mask” that will be worn during the next 6 weeks – 5 days a week for radiation on her tailbone, spine and brain. This treatment is aggressive but that’s what we need to do to fight this monster. Unfortunately, the fitting of the mask caused Amy to have a migraine which lead to her vomiting for 24 hours. But the treatments must go on and that is what our trooper Amy did. She got in 2 of the 29 treatments on Thursday and Friday. Thankfully she was able to get some sleep Friday night and on Saturday was able to keep food down and was released from the hospital that afternoon. Nothing better than being in your own home, snuggling with your husband and son.
The love and support of her family and friends is what keeps her going. Whether you know her personally or not, please continue to pray for Amy and support her family. She needs us now more than ever as she continues this battle. I am truly honored and blessed to be one of her best friends and the impact she has had on my life is amazing. I know many of you feel the same.
