We offer our deep gratitude for your support, faith and prayers. We are amazed at the far-reaching sphere of influence this young girl has. Her example makes all of us want to be better, to be more willing to care for one another, and to sacrifice for one another. At home she begins every prayer by saying, "Heavenly Father, We love thee so very much!" We know He loves her too and is mindful of her.

Bedtime on Sunday
Shannon has been pretty stable this afternoon and evening. Her pressures for the most part have remained in a good range and the continuous EEG shows that the effects of the Pentabarbitol are wearing off slowly. The rate at which that happens varies for each patient. The doctors will monitor that and see when they are ready to take her off the paralytic meds and see how she reacts, both in terms of pressures and neurological response. We are hoping that we have passed the peak swelling in her brain, that tonight will be uneventful, and that Shannon can rest well and gear up for tomorrow.
