Yes today we celebrate Devree being 1/4 through. We will buy the "Camp Rock" lunch box that has Joe Jonas all over it in the gift store. Today Dr. One More Thing said she is done with the spine and can lay on her back through the rest of the radiation. Devree is going to get several tatoos the size of a freckle so that the marks don't keep rubbing off and so when she has her check ups throughout the years, the marks will be there and they won't have to keep doing them. She asked me about them and I said it was her body so she could decide. She decided she wanted them.
Devree also decided for her big English project that she would write a modern "Romeo and Juliet" play. So Mrs. Bum, maybe Devree will show you that play when we get back. Sister Halvorsen, would you be able to ask Monica Kho for Devree's shoes she left in her gym locker? Devree doesn't remember her locker number but she was sharing with MoniKho (Devree's nickname) when she was at DHS. Will you please give the shoes to Todd so he can send them to us. Devree will have to start wearing some arch supports in shoes to help with her balance. Devree is excited because she ran a little with Tayzia. But she still can't do heel,toe walking, YET!
We have met some new people that are in remission today. It is always nice to meet people that are coming back for their whatever YEAR checkup to know that they are happy and well. We met a 15 year-old girl that had cancer in her thigh bone. She is not afraid to go around with her shiny bald head. Devree also learned about a cute 14 year old boy named Shane that has the same kind of cancer as Amanda.
I have been reading Sheri Dew's book "If life were easy it wouldn't be so hard" or something like that. Paula Heusser gave it to us. I thought, I love Sheri Dew, but what can a woman without a daughter, let alone a daughter with cancer help me with? It was a fantastic book. I recommend it to all. THANK YOU PAULA! Thank you for all of your comments on the blog that I can't hardly read because it makes me cry.
We are really enjoying Germantown ward and I missed it last Sunday because Devree was so sick. This Sunday we heard a cute story. This little boy was told that he needed to be more like Jesus because a part of Jesus was inside of him. One day the little boy got into trouble by his Dad. The Dad sort of grabbed him by the arm. The little boy said "Dad! You are shaking the Jesus out of me!"
Have a FANTASTIC DAY everyone!
