Thank You to everyone that emailed me and to those that left comments here. Amy was prayed over yesterday before she went into surgery by all of us and many of you. Thank You ... more than you know.

Yesterday they decided to go ahead and take her to surgery. It was a quick decision by the Surgeon and the Oncologist to place a Colostomy instead of completely doing a Ileostomy. The Ileostomy and removal of her Colon and lower system is a bigger surgery and the Doctor's didn't feel like it was in Amy's best interest due to her weight loss and nutrition. This will give her much needed relief and comfort.

They did place her port and she sees the Oncologist next Friday, and she'll begin Chemo right away to shrink the clusters of tumors in her Liver and the main tumor that she still has.

Please continue to pray and send good thoughts to Amy. Her family is reading and telling her all about you and your prayers.

Hopefully Amy can soon begin to write here.
