Devree Quotes

Devree feeling better with Mom, Grandma, and Aunt Tammie in the background.

Devree fell this morning. Then she tried to go too long without pain medication because she wanted to be alert. She wanted to visit with Grandma and Aunt Tammie. Their visit really helped Devree to become her happy self again.

I asked her if she wanted to write something. She said she wasn’t up to it. So I asked her if she had any quotes to share. So here they are.

“Wires stink. Try your best not to get sick.”

“My room has all of my posters on it. So it’s like my room at home. All of my doctors comment on it.”

More Devree Quotes:
“I love all of my stuff!!! I like stuff that makes me happy.”
“Falling this morning wasn’t very cool. I’m ok now, but when I don’t have my pain medication, my head hurts and I get kind of dizzy.”
“The deal is… If I lose my hair, I get an Alice wig. Aunt Tammie says I need a red head wig, because red heads have more fun.”
“My mom keeps asking me to eat, I don’t like that.”
“Walking is fine, but I don’t like being forced to do it.” (Mom & Dad keep trying to talk her into it.)
“I might get to ride in a cool wheelchair.”
“I got cool Barney pajama pants.”

Two baseball players from the Stanford Baseball team came and visited the patients in our wing. They were both quite handsome and asked Devree what sport was she good at. She replied that none of them really. Then they asked "Well what sport do you like?" She said "Probably soccer because I have played that one." Then they asked if she wanted a hat. She said "Yes" and then they asked if she would like them to sign it and she said "Yes" again. Then they asked her what kind of music she liked. She said "The Jonas Brothers" Then one of them said "I know them. I have a little sister." Then Grandma asked "Are you Singers?" And the baseball players said "Yea we're single" because he had misunderstood. The player said "We've been asked that before." We laughed because he had misunderstood and thought Grandma was trying to pick up on him. It was a funny incident. It still puts a smile on our faces.
Love, Shana

Devree, our family is thinking of you and your family at this time. What strong spirits you all have and great attitudes. If only we could all be like this. Kendra wanted me to tell you hello from her. She always loves when you come over to play with her. We always like it when you come baby sit, but don't tell Kendra that is what it is. We love your blog. Keep us all up to date and inspired.

lol. I love that pic of Shay! SO, SO funny :).

It's good to see she's making some progress even if it doesn't always feel that way. I have a love/ hate relationship with pain meds myself. They make you feel all fuzzy and I would fall asleep mid conversation (just ask the family about me on morphine!) and sometimes it makes you feel nauseous, but I can't live without them either. It gets a little better when you know how long a drug will stay in your body so you take certain drugs for certain hurts and that just comes from experience. wow. listen to me... the drug guru :).

That baseball story was great! I got a good laugh from it last night! I love all the pictures and am glad there was a couple with you guys, Todd and Shana, too! It is hard to be far away and it helps to see your faces as well as Devree's. Looks like Ruby is doing well too! Tell her we love her and miss her too! We're here if you need us.
