      Just got off the phone after a nice extended conversation with Amy and she is hanging well.  Between Fentanyl patches and oral meds for breakthrough, she is managing and living.  She was able to go to church yesterday with her family, but tires out after extended outings.

      She was quite lucid and just like the Amy I know, but she is tired, tired, tired and still continues working the problem.  

      Most of all, she is hanging in there as are her family.

      A remarkable woman.

          Charlie,

          Your words are very true – Amy is remarkable. I have never met her, but have followed her posts over the past year since I found this board and have been inspired by her determination. Hoping and praying for the best for her and her family.

              I beieve Amy was on this board when I joined in 2006….I'm sorry to hear she took a turn for the worst and I'm happy to hear she is hanging in there.  The fentanyl patches really work well.

                                  Thank you, Charlie, for being such a wonderful friend to Amy and Dennis in these trying times. Yes, remarkable is a good word to describe her, as is inpirational, strong, courageous, determined, and so many other superlatives. I think of her many times a day, and pray she is comfortable and at peace.

                                  Warm hugs to Amy!
