The Content here may change a few times as requests to add stuff are made. I will start with a quote from her Obituary.
“Shelby Suzanne “Shelby Sue” Laney-Glasson, 11, of Lebanon, passed away after a long battle of Cytomegalovirus, or CMV “The Forgotten Virus” on Tuesday, March 20, 2018. She was born in Indianapolis on Nov. 20, 2006, a daughter of Melissa and Aaron Glasson.
She was a life-resident of Boone County and received home therapy through Hattie B
Stokes School. Shelby Sue loved her family and her favorite comfy blanket. She enjoyed music, having her nails painted, big bows, being told she was a pretty girl and had the best laugh. She was a true princess, was loved by many and will be greatly missed. “Hope the Angels know what they got.”
Cytomegalovirus (pronounced sy-toe-MEG-a-low-vy-rus), or CMV, is a common virus that infects people of all ages. In the United States, nearly one in three children are already infected with CMV by age 5 years. Over half of adults by age 40 have been infected with CMV. Once CMV is in a person’s body, it stays there for life and can reactivate. A person can also be reinfected with a different strain (variety) of the virus.
Most people infected with CMV show no signs or symptoms. That’s because a healthy person’s immune system usually keeps the virus from causing illness. However, CMV infection can cause serious health problems for people with weakened immune systems, as well as babies infected with the virus before they are born (congenital CMV).
