Good evening,

Just a brief note to let everyone know that Amy is not doing well at this time.
She is experiencing a lot of confusion, balance problems, lung issues, a bad cough, and fevers off/on. The clinic did draw blood to culture and one came back positive for infection, but the staff feels the leukemia is creating most of her problems. We will continue to go to the clinic daily and she will get IV antibiotics and blood products.

Thank you for your continued support, prayers, love and kindness.
Kathy

    Amy - I'm very proud of you and love you very much. Give your mom kisses for me.
