So we are doing well. Todd flew in Saturday evening. Breck and Celest drove me to the airport and we went to the Red Lobster for dinner. Devree felt just barely good enough to go to sacrament meeting. Then back to the medicine room for the anti-nausea meds and her TPN changed. Then we went back to Breck and Celest's and had a BBQ.
Todd has been learning all of the schedule for Devree and all of the caring. I will fly home next week and be with the boys for a couple of weeks and then we will drive back out. Todd has a wonderful boss and let him take his family sick days and stay here. I have debated and debated about going home because it will be a little embarrassing for Devree, but I think we have figured things out for Todd to do the care.
Today Devree gets another dose of Vincristine. That is another chemo drug that she gets in the hospital during the chemo and then a follow-up vincristine. Todd will get to take Devree to all of her appointments and see how everything goes.
Devree is feeling better because she is reading a book. This morning she has been chatting and animated. I got her a book at the library that I thought she would like.
We feel really loved because we have gotten so much mail. Packages from Huessers, Danawn and Summer, Debbie Fauvell, and lots of letters from the young women in both wards. That was fantastic, but whoever did the address labels, doesn't know that I am Shana not Sharon. Ha! Ha!
Thank you everyone for fasting and praying for us. We appreciate all of the love and prayers.
