Thank you ALL!

I just wanted to thank each and everyone of you for all the love, caring, and support my family has received over the past month.  I can hardly believe that on FEB 24th it will be one month since the accident.   I am still very emotional and have moments that I just cant talk much, so forgive me!  AMY SUE will be 9 years old on March 1st....She was born at Halifax not far from where she is now!  She is allowed to have balloons and stuffed animals and cards but flowers remain at the nurses desk due to her intensive care status.  My children and I will be struggling more than ever during the spring birthdays of my kids.  We are still so very hopeful and have FAITH in GOD!  Amy Still has some infections and will remain in intensive care until those are gone. SUE ROOT

Update-February 18

Update from Amy's Mom:

Amy made it through a few surgeries and now we are focused on her infections and in the future a permanent shunt placement. The nurses are taking her off sedation and she has her eyes open but still to early to say if she sees us yet. Thank you all so much for being so wonderful to my family! God Bless!

Wish List

We have gotten several emails asking what does Amy Sue's family need? Her Mom and siblings are going to have to move to less expensive housing. A place to live that is inexpensive would be great but finding that is tough, so we are trying to outfit a place that needs some work for them. We need, flooring of any kind, kitchen cabinets,countertops and a stove. Labor to help get it in order is always welcome!

Fundraising Meeting

Friends of Amy Sue and her family are having a fund raising committee meeting this Thursday at Denny's in New Smyrna at 6:30 pm to discuss ways to help. Thank you all for your love & support!

Spirit Night at Chick-Fil-A

Update-February 17

Amy had two surgeries yesterday and so far she is doing okay! She has an infection in her spinal fluid and it will be 4-6 weeks before her next surgery can take place. She will most likely be in the ICU for at least 4 more weeks. Please continue to pray for her and her family.
