Yesterday was a crap-ola day. Devree started out being happy that she got to lay on her back and have radiation. But now the radiation is BOOSTED for her brain and as the day progressed she got sicker and sicker. She still couldn't keep down her pills or food or water. She did want to go to a movie and she enjoyed that but was just so sick we went back to the clinic and they put her on an IV and gave her some medication in her IV. After 6 hours we went home. She usually perks up after an IV but we are here this morning because she still is not feeling well. I am so glad Todd is here because it is very draining on you. I am so glad that the "Emergency Room" is right here amongst the clinics. St. Jude's calls it the "Medicine Room". It does give me some worry to go home and if something happens to Devree and going to the Emergency room at home is not like here. St. Jude's immediately get you to a private room and attend to you.
There are other worries back in the west too. Since I have been here with Devree my Father has had stints put in for his heart and received more yesterday. My Mom is also having problems with her heart. I am really glad Todd is here to help me talk out what we can do to help my parents.
So why the title today? We asked a couple of weeks ago for her to get a radiation session on a Saturday so that we didn't have to wait around on that last Monday for her last dose. She will get to do that this Saturday. That means we get to leave 3 Days sooner! That will give us 5 weeks off. HURRAY!
