Happy Graduation Amy!!!

Hooray! Amy completed chemotherapy on August 26th. Here she is with her swell certificate from Dr. Shull. She also received a bottle of sparkling cider, a Livestrong bracelet, teal ovarian survivor pin, lovely hat and super car magnet. We went to Whitewater Grill/Wasabi here in Idaho Falls and had a combo Yeah Amy/Goodbye Burches celebration. We are grateful for Amy!
The doctor says I am now in "No Evidence of Disease" (Remission is only used for lymphomas and leukemia). This state will hopefully last until I am five years out at which time it will be considered "Cured." This is what we are praying for now. Thank you so much for your continued prayers.

August 20

Claire converses with her "Hooma" on the shuttle boat across Jenny's Lake. Amy and Chris prepare to hike to Hidden Falls.
Amy is doing so well! She has only one more chemo and that will be next week. She feels awesome (as evidenced by these "action shots"!) and is working hard to achieve total wellness. We are grateful for your continued prayers in behalf of our family.
Adam, Laurel and Claire will leave for Eugene next Thursday. After that, Amy will attempt to keep up this blog. Amy begs your patience while she learns the e-ropes.
