Hot Dogs!!

Today is Day 78 at Children's Memorial ...

There is a restaurant across the street from the hospital called America's Dog. They have a challenge there that if you eat 18 of the 21 types of hot dogs you get a free meal, a tshirt and a picture of yourself in the hot dog costume on their website. Uncle Matt aka Matt Matt did the challenge, it only took 2 weeks ... his goal was to be able to wear the hot dog costume for Aidan!
So this past Saturday he surprised Aidan in the costume! We all had a much needed laugh.

Aidan had his MRI today to evaluate tumor status, we will have results tomorrow. Hopefully chemo will start on Wednesday. Please keep him in your prayers.



  1. oh....those pictures just made my day! How cute!!!!

  2. OMG! That is hysterical! Poor Matt, probably wont want to eat another hot dog in his life! I should buy him a pack just to see how long it takes him to barf! LOL
    Good for him! That was really an amazing thing he did for Aidan!
