Hi everybody.... I know there is so much going on in the world right... now. This is a crazy, broken, yet beautiful time. And in the midst of all of that - in the midst of all of our awareness and becoming and learning to love and see each other - I've had this really unique experience of having an unanticipated open heart surgery.

In the past, Amy has been open about her father suffering from dementia. A few years ago, she revealed her dad no longer remembered her.

During the tough times, Amy relied on her husband to give her strength.

Please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
