Shalene is still being spoiled!!! Pastor Matt and Christina stopped by to visited and brought her the beautiful roses and teddy bear. I must say Shalenes room is smelling good.

We have been feeling very overwhelmed with trying to count and get the right dose and such. Trying to keep in mind that we take it one day at a time and eventually things will come naturally to us. Its a little more overwhelming once we arrived home and realized that it was just us now. The counting carbs for each meal and such seems overwhelming, but again, I have to keep thinking that things will click in as time goes and it will become easier. I do ask that you continue to pray for us.....Wisdom is needed and God's touch daily to help us with this overwhelming task ahead.

This evening Shalene has been having an extremly rough time....things are beginning to really bother her and she is having a hard time dealing with all of the life changing things that this involves. Looking at the years to come she is really getting overwhelmed and stressed. .....I ask that you would pray for her to take one day at a time and not get overwhelmed. Its really hard watching your daughter, who has her life ahead of her, go through this. But with faith we are trusting God.

When the nurse spoke with us today to see what Shalenes counts have been she was very happy and said she could not ask for anything better. This was ecouraging -- they are still monitoring things and making sure that they have the correct dosage and such for her or if things need changed.
