We had a really wonderful weekend. The only really bad thing is my laptop died. I am so sad because I loved being able to blog and read my emails etc. while I wait for hours for Devree. BOO HOO! Now I only can use the hospital computer if there is availability and only for 30 min.
So Celest, Breck and Tayzia took us to eat crepes and other good things and the adults went to a movie. Celest and Breck tried to not let me feel like the 3rd wheel on their valentines date. THANK YOU!
Friday, Devree and I went and saw Coraline and went shopping. We went to a knitting class that Kallie loved and Celest, Devree and I endured. Devree had a big fall there and started to just get overwhelmed with all of this sickness etc. She had a good cry with me and Aunt Celest and I cried along with her and Devree got out all of the things that she really wants to do and wants her body to do eventually. We do have good news though. On Sunday, her right eye actually made a tear! The eye doctor plugged her tear duct and maybe all of that emotion helped unplug and her eye is looking less red. Of course Devree bounced right back to her happy self and I did too! So don't worry about us too much!
We have been riding the shuttle back and forth from the Target House to the hospital because it is about 5 miles away. Devree said she was hungry for pizza. Whenever she is hungry for something, I try to fulfill that need to fatten her up! So we go down the main street and I count 1,2,...7 fried chicken places. I comment to the driver, "You know you are in the south when you can count 7 fried chicken places and not one pizza place!" She laughed and told me where the pizza place was. I guess you know you are in California if you count 7 mexican food places and 1 pizza place!
My new friend Celest has a little 4 year-old girl that they have been dealing with this since she was 10 months old. Celest and I talk while her daughter is sedated and given radiation. The other day, Devree and I got there first and Celest and I started talking. The 4 year-old, said "Mommy YOU are NOT SUPPOSED to talk to STRANGERS!" I explained that we are not strangers and we talk when she is sleeping.
