~Amy's doing better~

Hello this is Mary Amy's friend from IsabellasCloset. Amy just called me. Her voice sounds a bit better. She may get to come home from the hospital tonight. She said she will post a comment on her blog when she can.
She laughed and said "I still have my hair!" What a funny Gal she is.
Bless her heart! Hang in there Amy..

A cause that is near and dear to my heart,

Thank you for your time!
From a nurse:

I'll never forget the look in my patients eyes when
I had to tell them they had to go home with the drains, new exercises
and no breast. I remember begging the Doctors to keep these women in
the hospital longer, only to hear that they would, but their hands were
tied by the insurance companies. So there I sat with my patient giving
them the instructions they needed to take care of themselves, knowing
full well they didn't grasp half of what I was saying, because the
glazed, hopeless, frightened look spoke louder than the quiet 'Thank
you' they muttered.

A mastectomy is when a woman's breast is removed in order to
remove cancerous breast cells/tissue. If you know anyone who has had a
mastectomy, you may know that there is a lot of discomfort and pain
afterwards.  Insurance companies are trying to make mastectomies an
outpatient procedure. Let's give women the chance to recover properly
in the hospital for 2 days after surgery.

Mastectomy Bill in Congress

It takes 2 seconds to do this and is very important .. please take
the time and do it really quick!

Breast Cancer Hospitalization Bill - Important legislation for all women.

Please send this to everyone in your address book.
If there was ever a time when our voices and choices should be heard,
this is one of those times. If you're receiving this, it's because I
think you will take the 30 seconds to go to vote on this issue and send it
on to others
you know who will do the same.

There's a bill called the Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act which
will require insurance companies to cover a minimum 48-hour hospital
stay for patients undergoing a mastectomy.  It's about eliminating
the 'drive-through mastectomy' where women are forced to go home just a
few hours after surgery, against the wishes of their doctor, still groggy

from anesthesia and sometimes with drainage tubes still attached.

Lifetime Television has put this bill on their Web page with a petition
drive to show your support.  Last year over half the House signed on.

PLEASE!! Sign the petition by clicking on the Web site below. You need
not give more than your name and zip code number.

This takes about 2 seconds. PLEASE PASS THIS ON to your friends and family, and on behalf of all women, THANKS.

thinking of you amy and hoping you're feeling better with each new day. xo
