Update on Amy

It is with a very heavy heart that I write this post.  My liver has been playing up the last couple of months and has now got critical.  I have one more chance at a treatment option which may/may not work - to be honest, the oncologist doesn't even know if there will be time to see if the chemo will work.  I pray that it will and that it may give me a bit more time with my beautiful family.  So, I am in the hospital at the moment with a plan to commence the new chemo tomorrow provided I am well enough ( a bit of a raised temp which I hope will be brought under control).

I was due to finish up at work in 2 weeks - I had so many plans, so many things to still do and now I don't know that I will have the time.  Will I be here for Audrey's 7th birthday, for Christmas, for Eli's first year at Kinder?  I always knew that the time would come but I always thought I had more time.  I always thought I will be one of those ladies that live with  cancer for 20 years.  Now, nothing is certain.  Nothing except the love  I have for my family.  I wish they didn't have to go through this.  I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy.

I only know you through your blog, but even I can see you are an amazing women ~ strong and filled with passion and love, especially for your family. The cards you've been dealt suck. Unfortunately none of us ever know how long we'll be here ~ but that doesn't give comfort. Having children is such a blessing and every day we spend with them a gift. I wish I could change the cards you were dealt. I wish I had the words to express what I want to say. I know anything I say online isn't really much use to you at all. But know that we think of you and if there was something more practical we could do ~ let us know.
