What can you do when you are one of a 1000 people out of the 7.5 billion on the planet who have been diagnosed with this particular disease. Imagine having your guts knotted up as though you had Crohn's disease, add to that fever and aches as though you had flu, add to this the feeling that you have the arthritic joints of a 80 year old and you are 42... Now you have a idea of what T.R.A.P.S syndrome is like. Now imagine having cancer and being diagnosed with M.S as well. I wanted to let you all know a little bit about her. She is the mother of 4 amazing children. We have 2 that are disabled..Christefer has cerebral palsy, while our son Brandon has Asperger's syndrome. Amie took our children to therapy 4 times a week for years. She is the reason they are as well adjusted and are graduating from High School. And will be going to college. She is a grandmother of a beautiful little 3 year old who thinks the moon and sun set because of her. She lost her brother when she was 26, and didn't realize at the time that she had contracted strep throat. After the funeral she came home went to the doctors and turned out she had developed Rheumatic Fever. She was on antibiotics for 3 years . She has worked hard all of her life. She was a HR director, Translator in charge and Assistant to the CEO of a startup company for 4 years before the internet crash. Amie worked her way through school and was a professional VIP chef for Bristol Motor Speedway. She was also store manager of two different locations of the store she worked for. One day at work she slipped on the floor and broke her wrist. She had a injection in that arm to help the numbness and contracted staph infection. She fought for her life for 10 days. They actually told us she might not make it...but she did. But her immune system has never been the same. She then devolved strange fevers etc..that's when she was diagnosed with T.R.A.P.S. She was diagnosed with Cancer, and while at Mayo diagnosed with M.S. She is homebound until surgery she can go back and forth to the doctors but other than that she really can't leave the house. Her immune system can't take it. She can't even have a flu shot. Amie is funny, nice, helps everyone she knows, a fantastic mother, strong minded, strong willed, loving..she would give you the shirt off her back...and has actually. Amie loves The Walking Dead, True Blood, Doctor Who... She loves us and we love her. It will be 20 years Dec.05 that we have been married...and I want to see it go another 50.
You all know the medical bills, the hardships, but on the advice of a friend I wanted to let you know her. My love my wife Amie.

Hi guys long update! Sorry it has been so long lots going on. First off let me just say again thank you to everyone! We go to gynecologist on the 26th this should be where we find out about what's next. Right now silly stuff happening....I had strep about 3 weeks ago.. Finished my antibiotics and started having joint pain and swelling. So went to doctors...turns out I have thematic fever...I had it once when I was 25 but not sense so it's kicking my butt right now. Went had tons of new blood work yesterday and pee test. They called immediately because my urine showed strange things...they cultured it and I have a big ol kindney infection on top of everything else. I am going to my cardiologist in the ne t few weeks due to the heart murmur I got when I had rf the first time is sounding more pronounced now Lolol. I told Shawn I am taking 3 steps forward and 2 back. It's nuts! But at least we caught this early we hope. So kids are doing well...Shawn is hanging in there and life goes on.

Hi all, I wanted to quickly update everyone. I was doing better then I turned around and got pneumonia. Antibodies and rest. I just figure one more thing to get through. I am walking which if any of you know me,,,you would know what a huge step this has been for me. This year (expecially this week) I have been so weepy. Very blessed and can't thank all of you for every it of support, love and sweet notes etc that you all have sent. I am speaking for both my husband and my family when I say thank you all. Also please remember that this account is set up on a seprate account that goes straight to mayo we never see it. So please know that it's going where it needs to go. Without him you all we would not have been able to pay them so much this year. We are down to just over 237,000 owed wow you can't beat that. We were at almost 300,000. Lol that is a huge house where we live lol. I am attaching a photo of our beautiful grandbaby to show you guys just how big she has gotten.
