1/2 way through RADIATION

It has come to my attention that I didn't write my email address right yesterday. It is

So today when Devree is 1/2 way through her radiation treatment, she will be 1/2 way through. So when she is done because today will be her 17th session she will be MORE than 1/2 way through. YEA! This is a very special day because we are going to see the 3D Jonas Brothers Movie and Devree said "Mom you really don't have to go because I know you don't love Jonas Bros. like I do." I told her "I am going to get my enjoyment from watching YOU!" They had a special on MTV that we caught the last 15 min. and it was all about the biggest Fans of Jonas Bros. because of a contest and the Jonas' were there. Devree knew all of the answers except ONE! She would have won all by herself because there were team competitions.

Today is also very special because Jessica, Liz, Kaylun, Aunt Becky, Uncle Jeff, Aunt Mary and Uncle John are arriving today to visit us. We are SO EXCITED! They are coming from MO so it is about a 6 hour drive for them.

Well Devree is still not keeping stuff down and not getting much relief from nausea. We will probably have to up the Marinol. Poor Girl, I am so worried because before my eyes, she looks more pale, and thinner. Seeing her bald head, I still get a shock. I know it is Devree but she just doesn't look like she used to. I know she will again, but it is hard to see her suffer so much.

OH VERY IMPORTANT NEWS! I found this really inexpensive laptop at Sam's Club. Todd my wonderful Computer knowledgeable husband looked at it and of course upgraded it and it is coming SOON! We are thinking of buying my own access to wireless internet so I don't have to worry about pictures etc. on the St. Jude's wireless that is so weak and unsure, here at the Target House. THANKS FOR ALL OF YOUR REPLIES! WE FEEL LOVED!

We will have a FANTASTIC weekend and we hope you will too. Hopefully on Monday I will be able to blog some pictures of our weekend.

Huge day! Half way, baby. It always goes faster after you get to this point. Sounds like a fun weekend you've got planned. Devree, don't be one of those fans who passes out over the Jonas Bros. You've done enough of that recently. Enjoy the show. I wish I could be there to see you have such a great time. You deserve it. Soak it all in and have fun with your family too. Love ya!

Hi Devree and Shana!
We missed you on Wed. and now it seems like we havn't seen you forever... 1/2 way through?! That is awesome, you are over the hump. Hopefully time will fly by for the last half. I bet you and your family can't wait for the visit home, and it is getting closer:) Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday.

I am SOOOOOOOOOOOO happy that you are getting a new computer, I was sad when I heard that you were contempating quiting your blogging. I check it a few times a day just to see how things are going. it you would like i can add a counter so you can see how much you are loved one more way.
Love ya Summer

A counter would be way cool! It would let shana see how many people are looking at the blog.

So many people tell me that they look at the blog, but they don't feel confident about posting something that everyone will see.

Yee Haw a party! I hope you all have a great time.

I am so thrilled you are getting a laptop to keep blogging. I am probably like everyone else who checks in daily for our Devree update! I think getting a oounter would be great. I think you will be surprised by how many people are following you.

Hey Todd, I am anxious for the bachelor update. I so hope Noble had a great time on his trip and how did Shay and Dane do while he was gone?

Gosh...1/2 way done. Wow! Before you know it, you will done and home and healing!

We love you all lots. Have so much fun this weekend..Stay strong...Hugs...

ps don't forget just how powerful the "military" is with prayer and fasting leading the way.
