FezGram… Day 695 09OCT10
Joshua received a special FezGram today from the Shriner's Hospital for Children. They were thanking him for donating a large box of soda can tabs to their wheel chair program. We got to take a great private tour of the hospital with Don our tour guide. Our wonderful volunteer, Addy, from the clinic set it up for us. The hospital is really amazing and it was a treat to be able to see all of it. The whole place is decorated in an underwater theme and we felt right at home amidst the turtles, dolphins, manatees, and other creatures of the ocean. After our visit we headed to the Children's Cancer Center to meet Jarrod's new big buddy. You all remember Jake who was his buddy last year, well now it is time for Jarrod to break in a new second year med student. This year it is Clayton who we had a chance to get to know over lunch. He is a nice young man who grew up in Seminole and is hoping to become a pediatrician. I am sure that he and Jarrod will have lots of fun over the next year. There was a great turn out of students and we got a chance to visit with some of our close friends as well. By the time we made it back to the house we were all a little beat so we each found a way to kick back for a bit. Renee made a great dinner of stuffed shells and her parents came over to help us eat them.
The highlight of the evening was the first Lightning hockey game of the season, and they won! Joshua and Jarrod are excited that hockey is back, so are we, and as soon as they started scoring Joshua ran into his room to put on his Lightning shirt. Looks like he is going to be their good luck charm again this season :)
