Today is "Tight Tuesday" because everything happens today. The clinics are full, there is no place to park and we should get to meet with her doctors today. She was put back a day for first radiation to Thursday instead of Wednesday.
So about the hair donations. I have put Connie O'Barr in charge. (Poor girl, she was in New York and I decided to do this.) Let's put a date when it needs to be to Connie like February 17th? That gives everyone a couple of weeks. Give it to her and then she can send 1 box of hair to my sister-in-law Celest. I don't know if it can be dyed or not hair. I don't know how many heads of hair it takes to make a wig but it does need to be 11 inches long. Just send it and Rachel the wig maker can decide. Okey Dokey?
We started off the day getting to sleep in and didn't have to be here till 9am. We called it our "Late Start" and felt right at home fixing our bacon, bagels and orange juice. It almost felt like home except we missed the men in our family. We have a wonderful van loaned to us by Brenda in the Germantown ward. It has a GPS in it so we don't get lost too much. But let me tell you I have already been pulled over by the police. Just to let you know, I don't get pulled over and I haven't had a ticket since Devree was 6 years old. So what happened is this; when I went shopping on Saturday I went a few blocks away on the same street as the Target house to do some grocery shopping. I wanted to make sure that I got back on Poplar so I wouldn't get lost. Devree is my GPS operator and she was still sleeping in the apartment. So Poplar is this huge 6 lane street that runs all the way across Memphis and through Germantown. So I get in the left lane to turn left, I signal, the ongoing traffic is just a few cars, I wait and make a safe turn. A policeman immediately turns his siren on. I pull into a restaurant and get my license out. I use "Sir" alot and tell him I was going to the Target House and didn't want to get lost. He told me that there were 3 signs that said I couldn't turn left. He didn't give me a ticket but the rules out here for driving are a little bit different. You can NEVER turn left unless they have a sign that says you can. So we do things the UPS way and try to figure out how to make ALL RIGHT turns! I guess that is our motto from now on. ONLY MAKE RIGHT CHOICES!
Devree made the nurses laugh at her "Radiation Simulation". They let her bring her ipod in for her 3 hour ordeal. We found out the real sessions of radiation are only like a 1/2 hour. Anyway Devree puts on her Favorite Play list. Of course it has Jonas Brothers and then it has "I believe in Miracles, Where you From? You sexy thing!" They all started laughing because Devree has so many types of music she likes. The nurses were shocked that they listened to some of the same music.
