THANK YOU CHRIS and CINDY for the lovely cards. They will come in handy sending out Thank you's to all of those that send stuff.
THANK YOU WORKMANS for the lovely notes and pictures. Kirsten you sure are a good artist.
THANK YOU SHANNON for your comment on the blog. I had to have a serious talk with Devree to repeat that her job is to do what the doctors ask, to have a good attitude and to exercise those facial muscles even when you don't feel like it and to EAT even if it doesn't sound tempting because if she loses too much weight they will have to hospitalize her and not let her come home after her radiation. She didn't think about that one! Devree told me that "Yea the doctors told me all of these side effects and I thought, I will be different and it won't happen to me. But now they are happening to me and I am a little MAD!" I told her that this healing process does take the range of emotions and it is a lot like the steps of Grief because you are feeling grief over the loss of your health. So I think that Devree has gone through disbelief, denial and anger. We are slowly working toward acceptance and moving on from there.
There was a really good quote that was given on Sunday. "Be Kinder than necessary for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle."
