This blog is dedicated to Amie an inspiration to all of us and I can only hope I do her justice in this post!
Amie who has been healthy her entire 34 years of life just fell to her bathroom floor Thanksgiving night 2017. She was unable to communicate so her husband quickly called 911 and she was taken to the hospital.
For the next several days her family, doctors, and specialists tried to figure out what was happening as she laid in ICU. A brain biopsy was finally done and it was determined to be a grade 3 brain tumor.
To add more to the situation Amie was 10 weeks pregnant when she collapsed. The doctors and Amie's family started to plan for treatment and at the beginning stages of her second pregnancy she had to terminate her pregnancy to undergo radiation and chemo.
Brain surgery was done to relieve her inflammation and remove about 1/3 of her tumor. After 12 days in the ICU Amie was released to rest for a month and treatments began for 6 weeks.
As I write this tears began to stream down my face but that's not what Amie wants!
Amie still has frequent seizures that limit her in some ways but definitely don't slow her down!
She was abundantly blessed with great news on March 26th 2018 that the tumors were not evident and the treatments were successful!
Chemo and MRI scans will continue to monitor her health and brain.
The morning I came to interview her she had had a seizure yet she was still so happy and positive and ready to share! We had three kiddos there and it was so much fun to see her light and love of life!
This mama, wife, daughter, and I am proud to call her a friend has a SMILE on her face EVERYDAY! She is Amazingly positive, courageous, friendly, kind, loving, caring, patient, and optimistic! She truly is an Inspiration who gives 500%!
Thank you Amie for letting me into your house, sharing your story, and well just being you!
