Friends~
I wanted to share a note from Shelby's family to all of you dear people.
____________________________________________________
Hi Marge,

First of all, let me apologize for the delay in responding to your e-mail but as you can imagine, things here have been extremely hectic.

Shelby is getting along wonderfully.  I know how resilient children are but I would have never guessed that she would be able to get up and around as well as she has.

She is walking with a walker a little bit now but most of the time does the "bear crawl" around the house to get around (she has even figured out how to go up and down the stairs which scares me to death). We do have a wheelchair for her that we use when venturing outside of the house.

Shelby gets her cast removed in Tampa on August 24th and will be back in the hospital for 5-10 days for extensive physical therapy to retrain her on how to walk.  She will be fitted with a brace as well (which is very similar to the Petri cast she is in now) but is removable.  She will need to wear the brace for 12 hours a day for an indefinite period of time.

I want to thank you so much for all you've done through your networking on the Internet.

Everyone's prayers were certainly answered as Shelby had no problems in surgery and has recuperated very nicely.

We have received cards and packages for Shelby and are amazed at how thoughtful your friends are.
We will respond to each and every one of them over the course of the next several weeks as time permits.

Troy and I are both back at work full time (his mom is watching the girls for us) so between work and dealing with things around the house at night, our plates are pretty full right now.  

Thanks again Marge - please let your friends know how much we appreciate them and all they have done to make this whole experience much more pleasant for our little Shelby.  

Love ya sis-
Sandy

Well that letter from Sandy certainly warmed my heart and started my day off on the right wing! ~  or is that my left one? Whichever, I'm flying high with the news that Shelby appears to coming along fine and is in good spirits! She is quite a trooper ~ and I'm rootin' and a tootin' for her!

Love to Shelby and to the rest of the family!

God Bless you all!

Kellie and others~
Thank you so much for asking about Shelby~

The news this week isn't as good as we'd like it to be, but here goes-

Shelby returned to Florida to have the cast removed and begin therapy to help her learn to walk again ... the sad news is that after they removed the cast and put her slight little weight on her hip and legs ... the ball joint of her knee came out of place, causing her lots of pain~
They immediately re-casted her and she is to have NO WEIGHT on those little legs for some time to come~

Keep our little darling in prayerful thought, please.

AND on top of it all, Grandpa, feeling the stress of it all, was hospitalized with an accelerated heartbeat that they couldn't seem to get under control.
Pops was finally released yesterday and is on a new medication.

Prayers for my Pops would be appreciated too~

Thank you all~
Sorry this has to be a downer ... but with prayer-lift ... I'm sure things will be fine once again in time~

Dear Marge:

This is sad news and I'm so sorry to hear that things are not going better for Shelby. Also that her grandpa is in less than good health.

Will continue praying for all of them and hope in time, everything will be well again.
Thanks for the update!

Love
Betty Lou

Dear Marge

Sorry to hear that Shelby had to endure another painful experience at her tender young age.  My thoughts and prayers are with her, Grandpa and the rest of the family.  It is stressful all round!

Marge,
I'm so sorry that Shelby is now in pain. I will continue to keep her in my prayers. Grandfather too. Bless the family as they all go through this experience.

Feel free to look in Spiritual, Critical and Prose for writing by me!

God Bless,
Kellie

Update -
Shelby and her family have returned home to Ohio where Shelby is now able to attend school, thanks to a special wheelchair donated by the Florida Shriners Hospital.

It is difficult for her to get around, but we pray that the time spent rehabilitating will pay off for her in the long run~

Her family so appreciates your love and support for Shelby during these difficult times~
