    Shelby told me about Dan and my husband and I just read through your blog posts. I am at a loss of words but my heart and my prayers go out to you and Jackson. Your blog and your perspective through this whole journey is really admirable and I want you to know that I am so sad for you and so inspired by your strength. I hope you are surrounded by loved ones and that you are feeling supported. Bless you.
