This is Pheobe...Shannon's mom, the one who started this blog. I need to start a new blog that is my own so I can tell you about the parent's perspective but even then, I want to respect Shannon's desires about what I post about her and her situation. There is so much that I have learned through this process. So many things that I would love to share and perhaps someday I will be able to. But right now what is most important is Shannon and her perceptions and feelings.
Shan has asked me for the last couple of weeks to learn how to add pictures to the blog. Well, I am doing that. Some of them are not very pretty...please know that the pictures do not do justice to how she really looked. So here we go...stop... SHIFT GEARS! I am posting the pictures on their own page and if I understand how it will work, there will be a link at the top of this posting next to the word HOME. If you click on it, it will give you a whole other posting filled with pictures. If it works like I think, then the pictures will be for those who want to see pictures from the beginning...so that will be posted in a few moments.
(Actually there are TWO links at the top that will get you to the 2 posts that have the pictures. I hope they work the way they are supposed to....
