UPDATE 7-19-2021

Hello Everybody,

First of all I want to congratulate my niece Liz Candello and her husband Jerry Matson, on the birth of their beautiful daughter Landry Joan weighing in at 7lbs- 21.5 inches on June 30th she arrived almost a month early. Dave and I are now a great aunt and uncle, to the cutest baby, who has the most loving family, and will have the best grandparents! Her needs will always be met, because we are all going to spoil her rotten. We love you so much Jerry, Lizzie, and precious Landry, welcome to the world sweetie!

Congrats to grandparents Steve & Kim Candello, Trish Matson & Jerry Matson Sr.


Update on my health

I am currently on a chemo break and I am loving the time off. Besides my cancer oncologist Dr., I am also seeing two Dr's who specialize in Alternative Medicine. I just finished up 12 treatments of Vitamin C -IV infusions with one alternative Dr. It’s supposed to kill cancer cells, Dr. thinks this might help me stay off chemotherapy.

We are also thinking about doing Mistletoe injections, other countries use this along with the standard chemotherapy to fight Pancreatic Cancer.

Our philosophy has always been that we don’t want to leave any stone unturned, as long as it is safe, and my body can handle it, we are going to fight this horrible disease. I am also still doing acupuncture treatments with my other alternative Dr.


On my break we have lots of trips planned with family and friends. I am going to try and get plenty of rest for my body so I can start to feel like myself again.

I will have another CT scan and blood work in August. So please pray that the scans look stable so I can continue to be off chemo. Also pray for my CA-19 numbers to come down, the last two tests were very high, this is due to the cancer that I have.

Thank you again for all the love and support, and being on this journey with us. We feel all the love from all of you, the texts, phone calls and cards. And lets not forget this wonderful website that lets me keep you all updated. The comments you leave me, they are all read, and so much appreciated, makes me smile and feel so loved. Please continue with your prayers

I am so blessed by them.

Love to you all - Amy & Dave.

Oh almost forgot - We got back on the tennis court again and I beat poor Dave 6-4 !

Twelve rounds of chemo and I still got it!

Praise Jesus for your good news!! And your tennis game!! (Poor Dave lol). When my arthritic, asthmatic, 87-year-old Mother limps off the tennis court after crushing me I say “I should be able to beat you!” Ugh!! So humiliating.… I mean humbling.


After seeing your post, I’ve been trying acupuncture for my chemo residual neuropathy. It hasn’t exactly helped that but it’s helping me in other areas. So thank you for that!!


I’m passing your posts along to Mom. Keep up the good fight!! And may our God give you a miracle, protect you and keep you well.


All our love, prayers and hugs,

Laura

Dearest Amy and David - My immediate reaction is to tee off on David's lost on the tennis court, but that would take away from the greater recognition that you’ve overcome so much and that this side step on your journey is just a reminder that this world needs you. We need you to ensure Landry receives the same love, support and laughter you’ve given to me throughout my childhood; to continue your influence on so many lives by just being the amazing woman that you are; and then to school David on the court because it’s indeed funny when his little chicken legs run from service line, to baseline, to sideline.

A little normalcy is here and while I…

Elizabeth, you and Jerry are doing a wonderful job with your little one. I do remember the newborn stage, just take a moment to yourselves and just breathe. Advise #1 A wise friend of mine(mother of 4) gave me great advice, “If you just stay calm, your baby will pick up on your emotions.” 🤱 Advice #2 Call Grandma. 👵

Remember you really can’t do anything wrong. Until- Fast forward to the teenage years, you guys are on your own. 🤷‍♀️🤷🏻‍♂️
