Happy to send! Lauren, thanks for posting this!

I see from the article that Shane only reads the cards that are in French, as his parents have to translate the English ones for him. Well, Shane, I'll do my best to dust off my high-school French, just for you!

Bonne anniversaire! J'espère que tu sentes meilleur très bientôt!
