This last week I have been trying not to feel too homesick. Todd and the boys were at the Mackley reunion. Breck and Celest have gone to a family reunion in Utah. That is what summer means to me is to get together with your extended family. In our family, Todd's family reunion is this year and my family reunion will be next summer. We set it up to alternate summers and at least see most of our extended family every 2 years. I am a family reunion kind of gal and have planned several family reunions. I LOVE IT! Anybody want help in organizing a family reunion, just talk to me.
Todd told me how many people came to the Mackley reunion and I was so happy and sad at the same time. I would have loved to have seen all of you and talked with all of you. Some of you, I haven't seen for quite a few years! I was so glad that Todd and the boys got to go and I hope to see all of the Mackley side in 2 more years,. So you better come again! Okay?
The leg brace lady finally came at 4:30 yesterday and Devree has her new leg braces. She did quite a bit of walking in her walker yesterday. I was very proud of her hard work. Today she is feeling nauceous again. She tried to get the ativan in herself before she even thinks about moving. Sometimes it works and sometimes it just doesn't. We try to get on with life no matter if Devree vomits or not. She is getting much better about not making it a bad day, no matter how icky she feels. She did only have 1 bite of canned peaches yesterday. Everyday I wake up and hope this day will be a little better in some way and it usually is. Today we hope to be able to see a movie. Devree is able to not have to urinate for at least a couple of hours. She wants to see Harry Potter, but that might be too long. I heard that movie is 2 1/2 hours.
Have a wonderful weekend and thanks again for all of your faith and prayers.
