Another Update...

Shelly and Becky in St. Maarten
Shelly started her first round of chemo on Tuesday. They call this the induction phase and it is being done with baby on board. She is expected to be hit really hard during weeks two and three so any extra prayers and encouragement during this time will be additionally appreciated.

She has tested positive for a double mutation which may throw a wrench in things, most likely this will mean she will need a bone marrow transplant and the doctors would like for JC will be the donor. No set date for this, but could possibly be looking at mid to late October. One step at a time and right now it's getting through this first round of chemo!
Shelly is in the Bone Marrow Transplant portion of the hospital so she can't receive any flowers or plants, but if anyone would like to send a card, letter, or pictures to her, here is the address:

Shands Hospital
1515 SW Archer Road
BMT Unit/Shelly Gardner/ Rm 7120
Gainesville, FL 32608
