Yesterday was a wonderful day for Devree. Grandpa Hamblin and Aunt Paula came to visit. Uncle Break came by to visit us. Brittany Giddon and her mother gave Devree a cool book about Twilight, and visited. Devree loved her new book called, Twilight –The Directors Notebook. She devoured that book from cover to cover. It told how all of the special effects were done.
Today it is hard to be in the hospital. If you are in the hospital they can give you your drugs through your IV. Devree really likes that, because when she is at the Target House she has to take them in pill form. Most of the pills she is taking are for nausea. The process of swallowing pills makes Devree throw up half the time. So Devree prefers being in the hospital because she hardly throws up at all here. There is one problem though.
When Devree is in the hospital, she has less freedom. Today she was faced with two choices and she didn’t like either one. So she had a good cry because she didn’t like any of her choices. She wished her brother Noble was here, because he can always help her find a smile. I held her and let her have a good cry. Sometimes you just have to let all of those feelings out. She got it all out and now we are focusing on happy things.
Tonight Shana will get here with the boys, and we are ready to be together as a family. Devree is really looking forward to having them here. I know Dev’s loves being around family. During her break when she was able to go home, Devree would sit on the couch just listening to the sounds of her family. She liked sound of Shay & Dane playing, and conversations between Noble, Shana, and I.
Sunday the 29th Devree gets her 3rd round of chemo. That means we are 75% of the way through!!!
Love you all!!!
