Grandma and Grandpa Hamblin are coming!

We are doing so much better this week that we are counting our blessings. Here it is Friday and Devree hasn't gotten sick and she is almost eating 3 meals a day with some snacks. This is very good news because by Friday she is "Fried" literally with all of the radiations through the week. Thanks again for all of your prayers.

I am sorry if I made some of you worry. The dye was not for the tumors but for her kidneys. The doctors were worried after the 24 hour urine test that her kidneys were not functioning as well as they should. But now they did the dye test and took her blood immediately after, 1 hr, 2hrs and 4 hrs and her kidneys are fine. Believe me there are too many people that want to know about Devree for me to withold any GOOD or bad information. I will tell all of you when I know anything. It is very therapuetic for me to blog so that I can help myself deal with these things.

Wasn't the Spaghetti Feed just awesome? Boy, Devree and I were so amazed and wished we could be there ourselves to witness it all. I really wished to be there because I know more people than Todd in Dayton through substituting at all of the elementary schools. I couldn't ask Todd because he doesn't know people like I do. Boo Hoo. But I am happy all of the same.

We are very excited that Chris and Shelley Richards are bringing Grandma and Grandpa Hamblin. We are going to show them St. Jude's and we think they might like to see Graceland where Elvis lived and possibly the National Civil Rights Museum or maybe the Underground Railroad used for slaves here in Memphis. The Civil Rights Museum was very interesting. We took the whole family there a few years ago when we visited Breck and Celest. We will never forget it because Shay who was probably 6 at the time, said in his loud voice "Wow! That is the coolest Halloween Costume I have ever seen!" as we passed the KKK outfit.

I remember when Shay said that. Craig and I were their, too. We also went to the Zoo. Fun times!

So glad to hear that Devree is feeling good. Have fun with your family.

Love, Koe

Devree- we are so glad to hear you are feeling better. I saw the counter on your front page and I believe of those 2664 visits probably 100 or so are ours :) I get on each morning, Logan checks after sports practice, and Barry checks when he gets home. Of course their is the occasional extra log in for Meghan and Laton. We got your letter in the mail today for the Sunday School class. Barry will wait to open it up until Sunday! I am sure the class will be excited to hear from you.
