We have now arrived at our first vacation week in the chemo courses and Amy feels really good. The nausea has been well under control (what a blessing!) and Amy is still taking daily neighborhood walks. She feels tired, but uses her bursts of energy to go on errands, play with the little kids, or to go visiting people with Fritz. Because the chemo purposefully weakens her immune system so severely, she cannot be touched by people outside of her immediate family. She feels terrible about having to turn down people that want to hug and kiss her, but right now it is necessary. We are all so thankful for the love everyone has shown--the great food and the cheerful blog comments are a comfort.
Amy thought this picture was hilarious and wanted to share it with you. Hannah dressed up as John Fogerty from Credence Clearwater Revival today for her elementary school's "Dress up like your favorite musician" day today. She took a little plastic guitar to school. We love her flamboyant streak---what a ham!
