Day 1 - The Shannon Family

Hello Family and Friends,
Today is day 1 of Nick's treatment. He will receive chemo through his IV (port) this evening. We will be monitoring Nick over the next couple of days and see how his boby reacts to the Chemo. The side effects will come on gradually, nausea, bone and muscle pain. There are meds to help him through some of the pain and will adjust each day as needed. We will keep everyone posted on Nick's progress.
We are very blessed with a STRONG support system from our family and friends. We have appreciated everybodies well wishes, gifts for Nick and just a shoulder to cry on. We know Nick is a fiesty and strong 4 year old. We will beat this together. As Nick tells us everynight: "We love you all To the Moon and Back"
