About You

You are LOVED by God. There is nothing you can do, or can't do to make him love you more or less. He loves you because he loves you. Because you are His child.

More then your past
Worth it
A treasure
You matter.

Update from Kevin (The husband)

Wednesday Amy had her tonsils removed along with the procedure where they search for sources of the cancer and take biopsies.  After the surgery the Doctor informed that he did see cancer in the back of the tongue and it may have spread into the right tonsil.  He told me that  there would be issues with removing it because of all the blood vessels that would be removed that supply blood to the remainder of the tongue.  There is also an issue with impacting swallowing and speech function if it is removed.  I believe radiation and chemo are the recommended methods of treatment.  Amy did not handle the anesthesia well.  When she woke up she had a lot of pain so they hit her with pain killers.  Then she had a lot of nausea so they hit her with drugs for that.  After about 3 1/5 hours in recovery she returned to her room.  She was very tired and felt sick from all the drugs and was unable to walk so she spent the night in the hospital where she remained until about 1:00 p.m. Thursday.  She remained very tired and felt sick all Thursday but was able to eat a bit.  Today her throat is very sore and painful.  The pain medicine helps but makes her very tired.  She tries not to talk a whole lot.  She is getting around a little bit now.  We talk with the oncologist on Tuesday of next week and perhaps will get recommendations for a course of treatment going forward within a week and a half.
