Matters of the Heart

I have been over at FourSistersInACottage, Amy is battling cancer and she is really suffering though the treatments. Although I can not imagine the physical pain that she is enduring I can identify with the deep dark hole of despair; "Rock Bottom". For me it came after 4 years of infertility treatments. After all of the shots, surgery, blood tests, and procedures. I was pregnant. But it was not a "viable" pregnancy, it was ectopic. I had what I wanted, but I couldn't keep it. I had to take two injections of methotrexate (a chemotherapy agent) to avoid having my left tube rupture. Loosing my first child in this manner, after everything I had already endured absolutely crushed me. I remember crying as my husband held me and I told him that I would never be OK again. My story has a beautiful ending, I now am the delighted MOM of a beautiful 4 year old son and it was worth it all, every tear and trial.
So my heart and sincere prayers go out to Amy. I know many people are reaching out to her and it is this lovely camaraderie that brought me to blogging in the first place. Please place Amy on your prayer list, lets stretch out our cyber hands and lift her up to the Lord and beseech him for her strength and recovery.

What incredible women you both are. My heart hurt for you and Amy both as I read about all that you have endured. I hope Amy will (soon!) fully recover and be able to feel the kind of joy you experienced as you gave birth to your precious little boy!
