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.”
Devree's Mormon Ad Posters
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.”

We Call This One "Boys Running Amok"
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.
