First of all thanks for all of your comments on yesterday's blog. Linda, I did look at the nursing bra but the main problem with that kind of bra is too much coverage the way it wraps and also because she really can't have anything around her underneath where the lines come out and could get kinked. We are thinking a string bikini where we could possibly bring the string down in front but have it be halter top with little triangles to cover up the necessities.
Well I had to turn off the laptop for a while and we heard some awesome news. I have been waiting since Friday to hear about all of the MRI's and the lumbar puncture. I couldn't even sleep Sunday night worrying about it. Then I get here yesterday and they weren't even going to tell us and we weren't on the schedule for today! I had to call and tell them "Hey I am the Mom and I want to know!" So miraculously we were on the schedule this morning right after Devree's lab. The results are GREAT! There is no more signs of cancer on her spine. Her brain only shows a little bit on the original site and Dr. Armstrong said it could be just scarring from the surgery. The spinal fluid from the lumbar puncture came out CLEAN! That means no signs of cancer anywhere else in her body! YEA! YEA! YEA!!!!!!
So back to the weekend.
Devree has been feeling pretty nauceous and even did the V word yesterday. On Sunday she had a really bad headache and we really can't give her any aspirin or anything like it right now becuase of getting ready for chemo. The meeting was almost over and Devree said I need tolie down. We leave and then Celest came out and kindly asked people to let Devree lay on a couch. Then Val, a leader in Young Women's came out to see how Devree was doing and said Hi. Then somebody suggested that Devree lay on the floor for Sunday and have the whole class lay on the floor! So they watched a movie in Sunday School and the whole class layed on the floor. Then in Young Women's they did the same thing. THANK YOU GERMANTOWN WARD for helping Devree to fit in and make it through all of her meetings.
Pam and Gary Neumeister came and visited us on Sunday evening and had lunch with me yesterday. It was so wonderful to have neighbors visit and to bring our extra stuff. They will probably be the only ones that visit from Dayton besides Todd and the boys. I really appreciate them including us in their travels. I gave them the grand tour of the hospital too. Pam took pictures and they are doing a blog too. So if you want to see pictures of us visit their blog on
Celest also came and had lunch and talked with Devree who was having a melt down with her sickness yesterday. Sometimes it gets to be hard to be here.
But we are very happy today. I was in the bathroom putting on my makeup and talking with Devree and Devree asked to use the bathroom. Without thinking I said "I'll get out of your hair in a minute." Devree's quick response was "Hair? What Hair?"
