I am finding it very difficult to express in words how I feel with all the love and friendship that has been poured out upon Shelley and our family, thank you so much. It has been a new experience to be on the receiving end and I have been humbled. I have now been at the bedside of Shelley everyday for 4 weeks. She is my best friend and I truly love her. I see that this is also true by many of you through your visits, email, call, comments on this site, and service. This past month has given Shelley and I an opportunity to talk about so many things. Its amazing how much communication two people can have when they are locked away in a 100 square foot room. Everyone should try it, just without the cancer. I wish that the news about Shelley would be better. She received the Chemo 8 days ago. We weren't sure how her body would react to the Chemo. Those of you that don't know, Chemo kills all the good that you have in your body while trying to kill what is bad (cancer). So far Shelley has not lost her hair. They are telling us that could still happen. The list of problems that she is experiencing are just to long to write. It almost seems that there is a new set of problems everyday. I started to list all of the things that have happen this last week but for me it was just to difficult to write let alone read. I hope you all understand. I have had to be hard on Shelley this week to make sure she eats enough. She has added Essiac tea, Frequinsea, and Sunrider to her diet which we hope will increase her strength . They have her on so many medications and drugs I can't even list them let alone pronounce them. Our hope and prayer is that she will be able to return home next week. Please help us with your prayers that Shelley will be able to return home next week.
Thanks again for all the nice comments everyone has put on the Blog. It does make Shelley smile, cry, laugh and say wow I was wondering how they were doing. Its been amazing to see the many people around the world that have been praying for and are concerned about Shelley.
