  1. Jackie, your post re lunch with Amy affirms this quote from Thornton Wilder. “The happiness of life is made up of little things -a smile, a helping hand, a caring heart, a word of praise, a moment of shared laughter. We are most alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.”
    Sending caring thoughts!

  2. Amy and that brownie would cheer anyone one up! Fingers crossed for good results on Monday. I say a Spring Fling dance is certainly in order. I think that’s a MUST. Xoxo

  3. Again, I have to say, You guys are the strongest family I know.
    Its not easy keeping up with a diet of any kind for any reason and yet you are and supporting each other. Thats awesome!!!!
    I hope things continue to look up and get more positive every day. You all are an inspiration to everyone.
    HUGS

  4. Jackie, So glad your night out with Amy was so restoring for you. I missed my time with Emily and my visit with Ana since I have a hint of a cold. But this is what I think about the spring dance…. We produced a concert why not a dance next? Love you. xoxoxox

  5. After so much cloudy progress over the past several months, I’d somehow seen the transplant as something clarifying. It’s so weird to discover cloudy progress post-transplant! Every single detail means something! Or not! I’ll tell you, that photo of Amy smiling and that brownie sundae perked me up, too. I love that you continue sharing here, because it all just seems like one hell of a journey, and I so appreciate the chance to cheer from the sidelines or update folks who ask me about Ana. I was at Adams in Kingston yesterday and saw an Ana flyer, and I was so excited! I gave the cashier an update, and another employee came over to listen, and they were so interested. Much love to all of you, and may many Amy smiles and brownie sundaes continue to dot your calendar. 🙂 xoxoxo

    • Very well said, Erica. I was expecting this – fearing it, really. It was one of the key driving forces to us looking for a surgeon who could resect Ana’s liver so she wouldn’t need a transplant. Isn’t that amazing about Adam’s? Jim went in and thanked the manager the other day. I’ve been in there once since they put the signs up and it’s a little surreal. I miss going there each week with Ana. Can’t wait until she’s able to have the salad bar again.
