Matthew received a kick a$$ fire engine yesterday after asking for one ALL day.  This one has a fully funtional hose and as you an see in the picture, is capable of pretty good soaking action.   I am completely unbiased and I can say it is prob one of the cuter pictures you will ever see.

We are going to stick around for another night since our MRI was rescheduled to late in the day today and we are coming back tomorrow to check various levels.  We did receive encouraging news that the spinal fluid has shown a significant decrease in leukemia cells.  I no longer get really excited about hearing good news as I have been on that roller coaster before but this is cause for some muted optimism.

Now I am pretty much a firetruck expert as Keegan is obsessed and that looks to be a pretty cool one. Glad to see Matthew smiling!
