Amy’s Great Escape

20 03 2012

ImageYes, she did it.  She escaped…even if it was to the hospital atrium.  It’s the small things in life that can bring such joy.   Amy, Don, Theo, Amy’s sisters, Julie and Lisa and cousin Lori got to spend part of Sunday like so many of us do, having family time.   They laughed and took turns playing hide and seek with Theo’s squishy rubber colorful frogs.  And he displayed them ever so symmetrically on his mommy’s shirt; as you can see in the picture above.   The big fluffy pillows in the atrium gave Amy great comfort but paled in comparison to the love and warmth she felt surrounded by her loved ones.

Since then, Amy is improving each day.  She’s eating a regular diet and has two of the five radiation treatments this week behind her.  To be on the safe side, the doctors and Amy will see how the rest of the week goes but are once again hopeful that she will be able to go home after Friday’s treatment.  Her radiation is at 1:30pm all week so please continue to set your watches and join us in praying and sending positive warmhearted thoughts.

ImageTonight, Amy opened a batch of cards that already came in the mail.  She was amazed how fast these arrived and was delighted with the compassionate, inspirational and loving messages inside.  The generosity of strangers, now virtual friends, friends from childhood, Facebook friends, distant family members and a friend of a friend, is incredible!  As you can see in the picture, her bleak hospital room is coming to life with the colorful cards and photos that she is receiving.  Please keep them coming!  They will continue to be uplifting during her battle.

Amy, I’ve been following you and praying for you though I’m just a friend of a friend. I have a prayer quilt for you if you will accept it. ( I have to ask because you have to accept it before I can send it.) With every stitch, I’ve prayed for you and Don and Theo. It’s tied and with every know there’s a prayer in it. When you receive it, the ones you love and love you best can add their prayers, too. Let me know and it’s in the mail! Prayers continue….

There you go again, with style and grit you face down the bad days and emerge all covered in love (from that handsome boy by your side) and those rubber froggies. Who else but you Dear Amy could pull it off!
