April 7

Dr Schull in Idaho Falls will be starting Amy's chemo on April 20th. She'll have 4 hours the first day, 2 the second and 2 the next Monday followed by a week off (as one complete three week cycle). We'll do this cycle 6 times consecutively. Dr Schull is confident that we'll see a cure at the completion of the chemo and agrees that Dr Zampolich's surgery was thorough and very well done. Amy is walking (she can even kneel and do stairs) and feeling pretty well, so we are positive about chemo coming up soon. Laurel plans to become a chemo nutritional expert and we're already seeing the benefits of papaya enzymes in healing from the surgery.

On the 20th, Amy will have a big dose of Benadryl right before the chemo, so she may sleep the whole 4 hours. She will be in a comfy easy chair with plenty of Elvis movies just in case she wakes up.


  1. I am so glad to be able to keep up with what is happening while I know that Heavenly Father will continue to bless you all.

  2. Brenda's and my prayers are with Amy and the whole family. This blog is a great Idea Laurel. Since Brenda works at St. Marks please post if she comes down for more treatment.

  3. Previous post was from the Ron Holgreen family, looks like my nephew Tyler was signed into google :)

  4. Amy,

    I was glad to find out about your blog so I can express what a wonderful person you are and let you know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I have watched your grace under fire through the years on the playground committee, and have seen what a wonderful mother and friend you are as well. I hope your chemo treatments are quickly successful. You are so loved, and you make the world a better place. Thank you for being you, and please get well very soon.

  5. Amy, you have been in our prayers since we found out about it. We are so grateful for Heavenly Fathers's love and blessings and wish you continued healing and strength. What a great idea of Laurel to keep us all updated.
    Love, Sam and Bibi
