Dr. Hughes loves his new hat.
He was really tired and I will be surprised if he remembers we were there. It was a good visit and I honestly wish we lived closer because I would enjoy having him and his family over for dinner sometime. He's a good guy and pretty much as goofy as this picture suggests. Fah-reaking brilliant but goofy. I like that in a kid's cancer doc.
We got to meet Grace and her family and as soon as the grown-ups got out of the way the girls hit it off wonderfully.
I think Rachael really liked being the older, more experienced girl for the first time but mostly I think she just liked Grace. Two normal, happy little girls. With matching scars.
Please keep little Grace in your prayers as her family prepares to start high-dose interferon. She had her lymph node dissection and they all came back clear. She had a little sentinel lymph node that worked very hard for her body and her parents get to breathe a little easier now that she is officially No Evidence of Disease!
For you occasional reassurance
