EARLY THIS MORNING BOB WAS INVOLVED WITH PUTTING OUT SEVERAL "SUSPICIOUS" HOUSE FIRES.....HE HELPED 2 PEOPLE OUT OF A SECOND STORY HOUSE ESCAPE....I AM SO PROUD OF HIM AND THE OTHER GUYS THAT SO SELFISHLY RISK THEIR LIVES TO SAVE OTHERS. Below are just a few photos of past fires that Bob has helped put out. Our OLD CAPITAL in Iowa City was ablaze from some construction workers and Bob was even on CNN for climbing to the top and cutting a hole in the dome to let some fire escape. THESE GUYS AMAZE ME!!!! I LOVE THOSE FIREFIGHTERS!!!!


AND HERE IS HAT SCARF from BECCA of BlueBird and Roses...MADE from some of her FAVORITE FABRIC. She made me two and I have worn the heck out of them. By the way, I change my hats several times a day depending on how hot or cold I am, one minute I might be in a scarf, the next minute in a ball cap, then the next minute in a stocking cap. I AM LOVING THIS!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH GIRLS!!! I will try to get at least one picture a day of all these AWESOME HATS for AMY!!!! LOVE ALL OF EM and there is no way I can ever repay all of you!!! LOVE YOU BUNCHES, Amy

GO TEXAS LONGHORNS....THANK YOU FROM MARY at CRASH n SMASH well, Bob has nabbed this hat from me. He LOVES it and he was feeling a bit left out so I guess I could share...LOL.....Thanks again Mary so much....WE LOVE THE HATS and all the goodies!!!!

THIS ONE IS TOTALLY CUTE....I've already worn it a few times and I will get a close up of it soon. THIS IS WHERE MY CHEMO BRAIN COMES IN......The girls have helped me open all of these "Hats for Amy" boxes and well, this one was put into a box with someone elses and I cannot for the life of me remember who sent it so, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME HERE.....It has 3 adorable yo-yos with a sweet vintage rhinestone pin on it....I JUST LOVE IT!!! Any help would be appreciated!!!! Thank you in advance!!!


Yes, that is what they call this short term memory loss. I am so glad there is a real name for it!!! I found that out on the cancer website. So here is what is happening, I am mixing up numbers, I forgot Nick's name the other day, I sleep 20 minutes to 5 hours at a time....ANY TIME OF DAY!!!! I am starting to get my days and nights mixed up and I can't remember who I have e-mailed and what I e-mailed to them. OH, and I picked up 8 different glasses and coffee cups this morning as I set my water down and forget where I put it. THAT IS NOT LIKE ME!!!! And last but not least....I am going thru menopause....induced by the chemotherapy....YIPPY SKIPPY!!! That to me is a BONUS!!!! So there you have it.....lots to write about today and now I need a nap. I think I am emotionally and physically wiped out!!!
Hugs to all of you and I love ya bunches....~Amy~

Hang in There, Kiddo!

Chemo really sucks! You go from feeling well to feeling very sick.

It's cliche, but you really will make it through living "one day at a time". When it's over, you will have so much to look forward to.

God Bless You,

Whoohoo, Firemen TOTALLY ROCK!

Hi Amy, this hat is from me! I'm glad you like it. It will be fun to see the hats, but there's a lot of time for that. You take care of yourself. You're looking great!

God Bless your hubby and all the other wonderful firefighters who do such an important job . . . you must be almost as proud of him as he is of YOU {*wink*} . . . hope you are resting and taking good care of you - can I just say that, in addition to those darling hats, your skin looks absolutely *beautiful* - really, you could be in a dove commercial! ; )
(it must be all that love in your heart that makes you glow from within!) Thoughts & prayers in a continuous flow from here to there and back again ~

Amor y abrazos,

Hi Amy,

Wow, I just checked your auctions and I am embarrassed to say that I had no idea you were going through any of this. I guess I haven't been doing a lot of eBay perusing like I used to and I just checked your auctions and saw that your were going through chemotherapy after surgery.

You certainly have my prayers and well-wishes. God bless you and your family as you walk through this. Take it easy, Love Sheri....myflowershed
