Farewell to Memphis and On to D.C.!

Today I drove Sean over to the school he attended while we were in Memphis last year.

It's a small school, there is one class in each grade, so the second grade class at the school is the same kids that were with him in first grade last year.

When we walked into the gym where the kids were having P.E., they literally stopped what they were doing, shouted his name and came running over to hug him and give him high-fives. I think he was overwhelmed and he tried to hide behind me.

He finally became comfortable enough to go talk to the boy who was his best friend in Memphis, Joey, and I snuck back to the hospital to be with Steven.

Steven had his eyes examined, saw the speech pathologist, and his neuro-oncologist, Dr. Gajjar.

Everything looks good. We are tentatively scheduled to go back the second week of August.

And, since we couldn't leave Memphis without eating some of their famous barbeque, we went to Corky's for dinner with Joey and his family.

We are flying to Washington, D.C. early tomorrow morning for Brain Tumor Awareness Week and sightseeing. None of us have ever been there before so we're excited...

Regina's MRI of her brain and spine were all good too, so it's three more months for Steven and our St. Jude friends.
