Scans are Clean and Great!

We just got the news that both scans are good and we are ready to leave at 6am for Boston for the next part of our journey. Dr. Armstrong here at St. Jude's wants to know how that procedure goes because another doctor retired that was doing the nerve transplant operations.

Yesterday as Devree and I were walking in the halls we ran into Dr. Gajarr. I said "Devree it is the famous Dr. Gajarr and he is the reason we came to St. Jude's and he is the one that published his protocol and allowed you your life." He gave Devree a big hug and we told him it has been 2 years since the end of his protocol a nd THANK YOU! Dr. Gajarr had 65% recovery rate for this protocol for medulloblastoma and now it is past 85% recovery from this cancer. We owe him a great deal.

Devree wasn't able to get her new hearing aids today. They didn't come soon enough but they don't have to be fitted so they will be sent in the mail and we can just hook them in her ear. Johnnie Bass is Devs audiologist and she said that she appreciates Devree being a good guinea pig to try out these new lighter, tinier, less intrusive hearing aids. I think hallelujah! We are blessed beyond measure! I hope you feel blessed today too!

So glad to hear that everything is going well!! Yes, we truly have so much to be thankful for! I am so thankful for St. Jude and LOVE that place! Can't wait for the time when I can work there as a nurse. Good luck up in Boston. Hope all goes well.
