Normally, I would be very upset by this turn of events. I am really in no position financially to get a
The mother, Amy, is only about a year older than I am and I went to high school with her. From what I understand from her husbands posts on Facebook and what I have heard from my friend's mom who spoke with her yesterday, Amy woke up in the middle of the night last week and coughed out a blood clot. She had had the flu or something. At the hospital they discovered that she has a very invasive and rapid moving cancer. Her lungs are filled with lesion's and they have moved into her brain. The doctor's stopped counting at 33 because there were so many. Her prognosis is fatal. One doctor has given her 1-3 weeks, another 1-3 months possibly 3 with treatment. She is not going quietly. She has undergone some radiation treatments and began chemotherapy today. Amy has 5 kids.
Amy's husband has been keeping people updated on her status through Facebook and the love he has for his wife is evident in every post. I cannot begin to imagine the strength needed to go through this. The strength Amy needs to have to support her husband and children, and the strength her husband needs to have to support her and their children. She is such a great and charitable person. This world will be missing someone very special.
Amy and her family have been in my prayers ever since I found out and I ask that maybe all of you could say a prayer for them also.
As you can see, when I put my troubles in perspective I realize that it could be a lot worse. It really could.
