Oh Michelle! Thank you so much for stopping by and remembering us in prayer today. This is very critical this morning. Debbie called about an hour ago and said the hospital was late getting started today. They tried to draw blood, but were unable to, and after Amy screaming they finally gave up and said they would draw it when they get an IV going. I pray she was hydrated enough to start an IV. She is down to 79 pounds, so I just do not know. Debbie said she would call me as soon as she knows anything. I was up late talking to her on the phone and praying with her. We know she is in Gods hands but I just prayed for her to know absolutely no more pain. I pray for her to have a little more time here on earth, cancer and pain free and know that this is a good place, not just a painful place. That is all that Amy has known. She told me that she was not afraid to go with the angels as she knew it would be less pain there than she has known here, but I guess I am selfish in that I do not want to let her go. I spoke to her briefly this morning and reminded her that I love her and that we are all praying for her. I will keep you posted Michelle, and thank you for being such a wonderful friend to both Debbie and I. Love, Sherry

Update on Amy! The doctors came in, they talked to Amy and were finally able to get the IV started. Ladies we start praying, it will be 2 more hours now, Amy is back in the procedure room. The Dr.s like to use the artery on the right side of the groin, but Amy had cancer there at the age of 10 and there is scar tissue there, so it may not be possible on the right side and they may have to go to the left. Debbie said that Amy was hesterical this morning, but after talking to the Dr. she had calmed down. The Dr. said they will occlude the corotid artery for 30 minutes, if she shows no sign of a stroke then she will be scheduled for surgery, if at any time in those 30 minutes if she shows a sign of stroke, then the surgery will not be possible. We have jumped the first hurdle with prayer, we move on to the second. Thank you so much for loving our family, Sherry

Michelle, Amy passed the test! I am trying to get the word to everyone, going down the list. Some I tried to hit at work, but there were so many. She did not show any signs of a stroke, and the Dr. said she is a perfect candidate for the surgery. As we speak they are leaving the hospital with her. They have a 2 1/2 drive home. She will need to be careful. At least with the IV she has had for the day, her little body is hydrated again, Praise God. She needed the fluids so badly. It was extremely painful for her, but we are thrilled. They did have a little scare at one point as she started having some problems with one of her eyes, it turned out to be a migraine, and not a stroke trying to happen. She is going to be very sore for awhile. I am just so happy, God has provided. I am going to post a new post tonight I would love for you to read, so please stop back by. Thank you for being such a wonderful friend. You are so loved Michelle, Country Love and Hugs, Sherry
