Making Progress

15 03 2012


Our strong, brave Amy is doing it again…making progress, one day at a time!  For the past two days, Amy has been able to keep food down and get the radiation treatments she needs.  And since this morning, she has been on oral meds.  This is fabulous news as it will allow her to go home, be with her family, snuggle in her own bed and enjoy the beautiful life she and Don have created.  She hopes to go home on Saturday.  Discovering that radiation can bring on a migraine for Amy, she now knows that after the treatments it’s important to keep the lights off and have her room quiet.  To help with this, she’s now sporting her new “blue bug eyes” as shown in the picture on her forehead.  Whatever it takes Amy will do it. Tonight she got a special visit from her adorable little boy Theo (see picture).  What a special moment for mother and son!  Only happy tears tonight 🙂 

Tomorrow at 1pm will be Amy’s final radiation treatment for the week, so set those watches again and together we will echo in God’s ears!

Written on behalf of Amy – who can’t wait to blog soon herself.

Amy you are an amazing person. You are such fighter on everything that you are and have gone through. Every time I see Debbie I ask about you and it breaks my heart on the things that she tells me you go through. But I am always praying for every day that you get better. Keep the fight up. You’re in my thoughts and prayers.
