Hope, love, encouragement, prayers, support; these are just some of the amazing words written with each card sent especially for Amy. Several of the messages start with, “You don’t know me but I’ve been following your blog”, they all shout out to Amy, that YOU can do this, YOU can beat this and WE are all here for you. This blog has not only united kind strangers but has shown Amy how truly special she is to so many. While each day is an exhausting struggle for her to do even the smallest of everyday tasks, she holds her head high and perseveres through the pain. She’s looking forward, not back.
Last week Amy had 4 of the 5 radiation treatments but by Friday, her counts were too low and treatment was put on hold. Monday morning she and Don will meet with the doctors and see how her counts are and if they are up, she will get radiation at 1pm. Tuesday through Friday she is scheduled at 10:24am (Eastern Time).
Thanks again for your support, prayers and love. As you can see in the photo above, Amy and Don’s son Theo helped hang cards on the Wall of Love and his laughter was heard throughout the house when he played the musical cards. Music to a mother’s ears!
