Flaming Socks and Maya the Monkey

Flaming socks from Emily Larkin.
Maya the Monkey from the cousins. Because she is dressed so tropical!

Well what could have been better to help Devree feel better than 2 packages to open! We recieved your fire flaming socks Emily Larkin. They are awesome. We have a good idea from Cat and that is to see all of the socks we were given. We will have pictures on the blog. Friday is the final day for the sock competition. Saturday we will have a special blog and say who is the winner! But those that do not win we have thought up an awesome momento. Each participant will recieve a gold children's cancer ribbon.

Due to camera difficulties I haven't been able to put on the pictures. Maybe batteries is all I need.

So Devree had another huge package from Aunt Mary, Uncle John, Kayleigh, Tyson, Noah, Maci, Jackson and Matthew. Devree got her birthday package from them and inside was the cutest monkey that Devree has named Maya because she is so tropical. Thank you Hamblin kids for choosing such an adorable monkey. It has all of their voices saying "Happy Birthday Devree". Thank you so much.

Devree did quite well with her last night vigil of urinating every 2 hours. She actually sometimes did every hour and half. Today we are tired but it is Devree's day of rest. Meaning no more chemo drugs. She did wake up throwing up though. We have a great nurse today that will make sure Devree gets her anti-nausea drugs.

I found it funny that Kim (our favorite nurse practitioner) came to check on Devree because she heard from someone on the floor all of the terrible things that have happened to Devree this round. But we are DONE! No Mo Chemo!

This Sunday we are asking for those that would like to fast that specifically we would like Devree to EAT and recover her walking on her own.

Hurray! Day of rest! I will definitely fast with you sunday. I probably won't ask Emma to since it is so hard to get her to eat anyway. Much love, Cat and family.

So glad it's a day of rest for you guys. Sounds like things have been pretty awful lately. I'm not sure where your boys are at the moment, but we are home and we'd love to have Dane come and play anytime.

Dear Aunt Shana and Devree,

No more chemo, party time! Hooray! Now you can get back to your old self. We are very happy to fast for you to be able to eat and walk, on your own. And, to get your hearing back, too. Sleep lots and eat much because, you are done with the chemo. Congrats! We love you.

Criag, Koe and Kylee

You made it to the top of your mountain!!!! Check out 2 Nephi 4 and see if you can relate to him. While you made it to where you are I'm sure you've seen things with both your physical and spiritual eyes that are beyond your ablilty to put to words. Nephi's psalm somehow exresses it for all of us.

Can't wait to see all your socks! We'll be gone until the posts for that judgment day are made, but we will always be carrying a prayer in our hearts for you.

I'll be fasting for you Devree, and praying always.

We miss you. Come home safe to us.
