Day 4 - The Shannon Family

Nick started his first chemo treatment in the evening of day 1. During the day he had a very fun playdate with Michael from school. Michael and him roamed the hallways and had lunch in the cafeteria. His treatment started that evening and went smoothly. The next two days he received more chemo treatments. On day 3 Nick got to meet another 4 yr old boy with ALL who was staying next to him. They played all morning before it was time for Sean to go home. Nick's spirits were down since he could not go home too. Colby cheered him right up when he arrived that evening and BOOed his room. The Deer Run neighbors put together a basket of goodies for Nick. He was so excited he wanted to BOO other patients on the floor. Today, Nick received his last treatment for this week and the 'first' round. The doctors will continue to monitor his red and white blood cell counts as they will drop over the next week. His cousin Joey stopped by during the treatment and played with him in his room. Nick continues laugh and smile..... just as we know a 4 yr old boy should. Take care everyone and we will check in next week. God bless!
