Day 56, Therapies

Today we met with the Radiation Team at Backus.  Everyone was so pleasant and welcoming!  Amber is set to have her first radiation treatment tomorrow.

I was also able to finally set up PT and OT with L&M Hospital.  Unfortunately for now, OT will be at the Pequot Health Center in Groton and PT will be with the Waterford Outpatient Rehabilitation Services.  Turns out that the OT at Waterford ORS is on family leave and the PT at Pequot HC is leaving.  So . . . for now we’ll do both places and hopefully, eventually, we’ll just end up at one place with back to back appointments.

As Amber starts her radiation treatments tomorrow, 5 times a week for 6 weeks, please continue to think of her and pray for her.  It’s so scary to think that our little Amber Grace is having radiation.  Radiation in hopes that it puts the cancer in remission — or at least puts us one more step in the right direction.  I still honestly can’t even believe that I’m saying the word “cancer”.  A Glioblastoma Multiforme Grade 4.  Am I seriously even writing this right now or am I still in a really horrific nightmare and will wake up to everything being as it was before all this?

  3. I have asked our students to continue to pray for Amber as she begins this part of her healing. She is very special and has such a beautiful and strong spirit. May God bless you all!!

  4. You are never far from our minds, always in our hearts and absolutely prevalent in our prayers. God bless each of you and give you whatever it is you need to bolster your strength to fight the good fight.

  5. Praying for Successful radiation treatments for Amber….🙏🙏

    I’m asking myself the same questions, will I ever wake up from this nightmare & have my son back, as he was, just a few short months ago…😢. Sometimes I can’t even breath from my hurting heart. My son is 34 years old with a similar diagnosis….

    He is 6 weeks past his 30 days of radiation & Chemo (by pill for 40 days)…He started his 2nd phase of Chemo (by pill) today….5 days on, 23 days off for 6 months….

    For now, I live for just today & especially my Fridays when I venture to MA to spend the day with him & his beautiful wife ❤️🙏

    Please know your blog on Amber’s journey is very helpful to me. She is in my prayers daily🙏🙏

  6. Good Luck Sweetie!!! We pray every day for you baby girl. We love and miss you so much
