Amberlyn has been up and around today

Amberlyn has been up and around today

Posted on August 25, 2011 by Debbie

As we await results of yesterday’s bronchoscopy (don’t expect to hear anything til MAYBE tomorrow), Amberlyn has been up and around today (after laying low due to the “sedation effect” yesterday.) She has already walked the halls, which is a BIG improvement. And she has chowed down on my chocolate birthday cake! There continue to be bumps on the road (potassium level is out of whack today), but the swelling she experienced last week is pretty much gone – we are thinking positive right now and praying for a positive outcome to all the tests! To keep her mind off the pain in her back she has started making Christimas ornaments. Everyone that comes in are amazed at the ornaments she has made. Thanks so much to everyone who is holding us up in prayer. God bless each and every one of you. Love Mama Fett

Amberlyn is not doing as well as we had hoped

Posted on August 22, 2011 by Debbie

Amberlyn is not doing as well as we had hoped. The pneumonia, which was better for a while, is now coming back and she has a lot of pain (in her back, at site where the pneumonia is located). New antibiotics have been ordered. They will do another biopsy on Wednesday to determine status of rejection. All your prayers are so important and we hope you will continue to pray that the pneumonia will be cured, her pain lessened and the signs of rejection DISAPPEAR! Love Mama Fett

The New Website is Up!

Posted on August 17, 2011 by amberlyn

It is with great pleasure that I can announce our newly-redesigned website is live! We’ve been working hard on giving the site an attractive new look that reflects the maturity of our organization. I will be blogging as often as I can, and soon I’ll post full photo galleries of our past events and the children we’ve had the pleasure of serving.

If you’re not already following us on Twitter, or a fan on Facebook, what are you waiting for?!

Also, please consider donating to Amber’s Angels in order to help us give the best we can to the children we serve. Amber’s Angels brings movie nights, goodie bags, and special events to kids who are not able to leave the hospital, which is especially tough during the holiday seasons. Your generous donation helps to fund all the wonderful things we do!

Sincerely,
Amberlyn

Well dr came today. Its not what we wanted to hear.

Well dr came today. Its not what we wanted to hear. Amberlyn is showing signs of rejection. They are going to tank her up on steroids for three days which is what they first start doing for patients that start showing signs of rejection. I ask that everyone please just contact us by email, text or fb. We are trying to let this soak in and then get our boot straps on and hit this as hard as we can. Thank you for your understanding and please keep the prayers coming. ♥ ~Mama Fett~

Amberlyn is at the transplant hospital in San Antonio

Posted on August 14, 2011 by Debbie

Below are entries that I have put on my facebook. Amberlyn is at the transplant hospital in San Antonio. She is not doing too good. Tomorrow is her 22nd birthday and she will be having surgery to make sure that she is not going into rejection. Please pray for her. The doctors feel that she IS NOT going into rejection but they need to do the surgery tomorrow to confirm what they feel. My thoughts are with DJ, Amberlyn's donor angel. He is the one that made it possible for Amberlyn to HAVE a 22nd birthday tomorrow.
