Dinosaur Eggs, Frisbee Dogs, and The Results

We didn't end up seeing Steven's oncologist today. As a matter of fact, we only had one appointment today, with the oncologist and after we showed up for it, they cancelled it.

However, Dr. Gajjar's nurse did come out and tell us that the results were clear, the most beautiful words in the world for us right now.

So, with no appointments, we decided to head to the zoo. Steven and Sean pretended to be newly hatched dinosaurs.

We left directly from the zoo to go to Target House, our home away from home in Memphis for almost six months out of last year. The Purina Frisbee Dogs came to visit and perform for all the St. Jude kids.

Steven participated in a competition to see how well one of the dogs could catch his frisbee throws.

Our California friend Regina and her mom Diana are here this week also and Regina loved petting the dog.

Regina had the same type of tumor as Steven and she just finished up the same treatment in January. This is Regina's 3-month checkup and Steven's 12-month checkup. Steven loves Regina, and we hope her brain MRI tomorrow is perfect.

There's a saying about St. Jude, you come to St. Jude with one sick kid and you leave with thirty-five. Regina is one of our thirty-five.
