Shane had a restful night and appears to be awake a little more often. He has opened his eyes today more so than any other day. He still has three weeks of medication in him and therefore is drowsy and still remains somewhat medicated. The white blood count has come down and currently the infection he has seems to be under control. It is hard to explain in words that for the past 19 days we have been wanting him to wake up and be aware and as the day/moment approaches it is very difficult to imagine what this time will be like for Shane as he finds out what the future entails for him. I must tell you that from a parents viewpoint this is heart wrenching and you wish that you could trade places with your child. As we go through the next few days of this journey and they maybe some of the most difficult days, we just want you to know that it is the encouragement and prayers that are helping us with each step.
