Stem Cells for 3rd Round of Chemo

My apologies about this post. We took pictures during Devree's 3rd round of chemo and things got busy so I'm sharing them with you now.

Guess what??? That's right!!! The Jonas Brothers were the first poster up in Devree's room. lol :-)

***
Mormon Ads (Clever posters about having good Christian values. Devree loves them.) There is also a message about Tinky Winky. (Some kind of secret cousin code message for Devree.)

***
More Mormon Ads, and a picture of Jesus with a poem below about how he is there for all of us. Devree also liked her Twilight poster over the window of her door. It was kind of cool because the light on the other side of the door makes Edward's face glow.

***
Megahn Jones sent a Dr. Seuss book complete with pictures. We taped "Fox in Socks" up for fun. Devree's nurse Nichole would come in to visit with Devree during her break time. She brought Jonas Brothers articles, and watched the New Moon movie trailer with Devree. Every morning Devree would find a colorful note from Nichole her night nurse. This note is to cheer Devree on because she is 75% of the way done.

***
Aunt Celest added some "LOVE" when we first got in the hospital room.

***
Cousin Tazia always thinks bright happy things for Devree.

***
Aunt Celest has done amazingly fun and cheerful things to make sure that Devree has no doubts about how much she is loved. So this art work by Aunt Celest is really fitting.

***
If you look in the top left corner, you will see "The End of Cancer". It is a picture of the hind end of a horse (Art work by Uncle Breck.). This horse's hiney is quite famous at the Bone Marrow Transplant clinic. All of the doctors made their way to Devree's room and mentioned that they had been told about, "The End of Cancer". Who knows, maybe St. Jude's will want to change their logo. :-)

***
If you look closely, you can see the fog coming off of the container. Click the play symbol in the center of the picture to watch the movie clip.

The huge syringe is delivering Devree's Stem Cells to give her a boost after the chemo therapy.


Well, that's it! I hope you all enjoyed these pictures from long ago.


Love,
Todd
