Devree's Fundraiser organized by Glenn McFadden
We are so Grateful to Brother and Sister McFadden for all of their hard work for Devree's fundraiser last Saturday. This picture shows Noble and Dane watching. Connie O'Barr took Dane over and Todd asked Noble to attend the festivities because Todd was here with Devreee and I. I know that it was a lot of work and we really appreciate the McFaddens efforts. Here is the link to the local newspapers articles for those that would like to see it. Dane was very excited to know his picture was in the paper and his teacher at school had it there yesterday in class for everyone to see. I think that Shay was a little jealous because he wasn't in the paper. But Shay had a ton of fun playing at Stephen Watts house all day. Thanks again Watts, O'Barrs and Bogas for the sleep overs for the 3 boys.
Devree is doing so much better. She has passed her 3/4 done mark for Radiation yesterday. She actually felt up to celebrating at Olive Garden with Todd last night. She ate bread sticks dipped in marinara sauce and was feeling "saucy" the rest of the night. Todd commented that he leaves today and finally gets to see his daughter act silly and be herself on his last night here. Today Devree gets dye put in so we can see if the tumors have gotten smaller.
We wanted to tell everyone that we will be home soon. Although one of our life lines is getting snail mail, please don't send any more because we will be home for 5 weeks. We don't want you to send stuff here when we are not here. We have appreciated everyone that has sent mail. It really perks Devree up. We are counting the days. It is 11 more days and we will be home!
