Home at Last!

This is Brandon once again writing on behalf of Amy. She is now home. Though she is very tired and worn out still. She is home. All of us are very grateful for her being back home, but realize it is still a long road to go. We have a follow up/2nd opinion consultation with Barnes in St. Louis sometime next week, and then will have another follow up with the doctors back here at Ellis Fischel. Amy will post an update in the next couple of days on how she's doing, and we will, of course, post updates after the consultation at Barnes and the follow up here. We are working with the hospital to make sure we get our mail so that any cards or leters still sent to the hospital before the good news came, can still get to her. 6 weeks in the hospital have left her very weak physically and very tired.

Thank you so much for your continued prayers! We, she especially, appreciate them very very much.

Praise God again! I am so glad she is home with you and Gary. I know she has a long ways to go, and it will be a lot of work for you as well. You have been a wonderful support for her. She is blessed to have you.

Amy, I just stumbled across your blog from another blog. I have read your entire blog and my heart breaks for you but it jumps for joy knowing you are home. You have been an encouragement through your cancer and you may never know this side of heaven why YOU had to go through it. My heart breaks and I cried to hear you were a young wife and new mommy. Love on that baby! I will pray for you daily and I will keep check on your blog. Thank you for sharing your story. Katy

Best news possible! Just a few days in the hospital wipes people out, so I can imagine after six weeks. It'll take a while to get your bearings back, Amy, but oh my goodness, I'm so happy you're back with your husband and baby.
