A Couple of Photos

Not the most recent picture, as I've now received over 120 cards and feel very blessed. The nurses comment on how much they love to visit this room and say that some of the other patient's don't even get a single card.

Dearest Amy,

When my Amy and I were watching the newest "Little Women", we found one scene particularly amusing. Jo has just come in from having cut her hair and Meg or Amy says, "O Jo, your hair, your one beauty." We looked at each other, rolled our eyes and said, "Winona Ryder would be gorgeous even if she were bald!!"

And in the same way, Amy Wilhoite would be gorgeous, even if she were bald. But you are also beautiful on the inside! You have that "unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of GREAT WORTH in God's sight." Which is also of great worth I'm sure to your husband as well. Although I know he doesn't mind that you have a lovely face to go with it.
You are constantly in my prayers, and I am now even thankful every time I am awakened in the night, so that I can pray that you won't be. I love you dearly. YOU ARE PRECIOUS!!

Hello, My name is Jennifer and currently I live in Alaska. My husband and I are in the process of moving to Russia for Missions. I am not sure how I found your blog.....but I did. I have been humbled and challanged by you, what you are going through and how you are handling it. I want you to know that I will be praying that God works mightily in your life through this time and that you can be an awesome witness to those around you(already seems like you are). I will continue to read your blog so that I can pray more specifically.
I Christ's Love!

Amy, as I've said before, your spirit is inspiring. I am so in awe of your strenth in Christ. You are in my prayers constantly throughout the day.

I'd also like you to know that you have inspired me to register on the Bone Marrow Registry. I feel like God called me to your blog in great part so I would realize this calling. If anyone else is feeling called in this way the Registry's website is

I pray for your family to have the strength to support you and that they find comfort in Christ. Amy, I pray that your body be purged of this disease, that the cancer is irradicated from your body and that healthy cells come in their stead. I pray that you continue to have faith in God and that you allow His glory to shine through you. I pray for your physical strength be restored and that your spiritual strength be multiplied in your time of need. I pray all of this in the name of Jesus, our Messiah. Amen.

Good morning Amy! I was led here by Sarah and just wanted to say that I will hold you up in prayer through this difficult time. Your spirit is phenominal and you are such a blessing in how you share. May you feel the Lords hand on you today especially....

My sister-in-law, Cherie went through cancer in 1988-89. On Valentines Day 1989, we were told to get her son's to her to say goodbye as she would be dead by morning. She just spent last weekend at my house! She had a bone-marrow transplant back during the days when it was experimental. But like you, she had sons to raise and many churches praying for her. God still had plans for her time on earth. During her isolation time, she was not even allowed to eat pepper because it could not be sanitized. I am praying for God to give your comfort through those dark hours. Maybe you can learn to sleep through nurses visits!

Awww...Gary has the prettiest eyes I've ever seen, even though the pic doesn't quite do him justice.

Amy - it has been so many years since I have seen you, but I still remember clearly all the fun we had. Niki gave me the address to your blog,your illness is the most frightening news I have recieved in a long time, but you are amazingly strong! I will be praying for you and watching for updates. I plan to visit Missouri this year(finally) and God willing you will be feeling 100% much better and we must all 3 spend some time together. Take care of yourself.

By the way, what a beautiful baby!!

Just wanted to check in on you tonight. I have a happy heart, as my husband completed another mission safely in Iraq and gave me a huge treat--a 20 minute phone call! You are in my prayers tonight--I don't sleep much without my husband here, so I will pray for you overnight. It sounds like it is the worst time for you, too.

I will be keeping up with your blog and my prayers will go out to you. My mother was diagnosed with CML (Chronic Mylegonous Leukemia) [i didn't spell that right] about one year ago.

I will keep you in my prayers!

We continue to pray for you. You and your family are very dear to us. We pray that the Lord will give you strength and comfort only He can give.

Hey Amy,
The last message I just sent you is now somewhere circling the planet Saturn. So I'll try again and maybe this time it will be accepted.

Almost done with chemo again, that's good, right? Keep up your guard against the infections, you appear to be a good gatekeeper on who enters your room. That's your right to have a germ free atmosphere and demand caretakers to be clean.

Gary has really grown since we last saw him and you've only been gone a few short months from Phoenix. We can understand your great desire to get back home and play with him. Looks like he's lost all the coal black hair he had when he was born.

It also looks like your prayer chain has gone international. With so many people praying for you, our God must be hearing a fairly constant chorus of voices lifting your name up in prayer. His mercy abounds and His love for you never fails. I also wake up a lot in the middle of the night and pray for you. Much better than just staring at the clock or the ceiling, now I got something to do rather than waste time or think about work.

Another week to go, stay strong and keep up the good fight. Your
Aunt Karen and I will continue to pray for you and the family.

I came across your blog through a link from another blog. The author had been impressed with your courage and strength and your witness. So was I. I just wanted to let you know that yet another prayer is being lifted up on your behalf at this moment.
