Allanah Comes!

ATTENTION FAMILY! I put more pictures on yesterday's blog because Devree finally felt up to helping me. Take a look.

Yes Alan and Sue Staggs brought Allanah and Erin 200+ miles each way to come and visit us. It was a perfect day because Devree needed a lot of uplifting. While I took Alan, Sue and Erin around St. Jude's on two different tours, Allanah and Devree talked. As soon as we would leave the room the whispering would begin. Then when we returned, they would stop. Devree was in the Medicine room for 4 hours getting platelets, blood, andancitron, benedryl, ativan and the antibiotic for her lines.

We were able to take them back to the Target House for dinner. Alan's parents live in Missouri and they came the extra way to visit. I still can't believe it! How wonderful that they took the time and effort to visit. It meant alot to both of us. Thank you so much for thinking of us.

Nica if you are reading we got your birthday package and it was awesome. Devree uses her "Burt's Bee's and she has her stuff in your handbag right now. We loved getting the package.

The doctors still don't know why Devree is having trouble in her urinary tract after tests. They have given her a pill that is supposed to take away the pain, but it still hurts. Breck is coming with someone in his ward to help give Devree a blessing to help her with this latest problem.

We talked to Kim, our favorite nurse practitioner, and told her that we are still going to "Wicked". She told us that she is going to pretend she didn't hear us. Because by the hospital standards, Devree's counts are too low to go out in public. We are going to take extra precautions.

Thank you for all of your prayers.

Love, Shana and Devree

Well, have fun at Wicked. I love Talon's hair cut. Why is he hiding it? Didn't he want it cut?
How fun to have visitors, too. So many people love you Devree. We love you sooo much.

Hope everything went well at Wicked...I have never seen it, but heard great things about it.

And how fun to have a close friend come shower Devree with love and attention. I imagine it was a very special visit and helped Devree "escape" reality for a while!
