First 48 hours down!

The first 48 of the 72-96 hours is finally past. Just a quick report to tell you that Shanny is being a good girl and keeping those pressure numbers DOWN. Another miracle.
Each time we read comments from the blog, listen to our phone messages, or read our email, our hearts nearly burst with gratitude for the outpouring of love from so many of you. It seems like every time we turn around we learn of someone else that has joined us in the fast; our wonderful extended families, ward family, Udell's BYU ward and stake, friends from Udell's work, friends of Shannon's from the high school, the list goes on. The impact this bueatiful child has had on so many is very humbling.


  1. Today after our fast me and my mom decided to go to panda express to get some food. After we ordered the man at the register accidentally gave us 3 fortune cookies instead of 2. So we decided that one of them was for our lovely Shannon. After eating ours we decided to open Shannon's cookie to read the print, "Health and Happiness are coming your way." Shannon is going to be just fine, I know it! I love you Shan Shan, and the rest of your family as well. ~Nikko

  2. Thank you for all of the updates. Shannon is such a fantastic person and an amazing friend. I am so glad to hear that mostly everything is positive considering her condition. My family and I will continue to pray for her speedy recovery.

  3. Add me to the list of people praying for sweet Shannon. I know I haven't seen her or your family in nearly 10 years but you have never left my heart. I love that little girl (she will always be little to me).

    I'm praying for the next day or two to pass quickly and uneventfully. Rest and heal Shannon! We love you.

  5. Pheobe & Udell...remember that I have a shower and kitchen here just five minutes away! I love you so much and am grateful for how many hands of heaven are holding our little sunshine up while physically she is dealing with so much. If you need me to come and give her a "you get better now and stop stressing your parents out" talk I will ;o)

    I love you.
