The Shannon Family -- 3 shots down and 27 to Go

Hi Everyone,
We had clinic yesterday and Nick's first shot in the leg while he was awake. He took it pretty well. Only cried for a few minutes and then he was able to play Spongebob on the game system they had. He still struggles with his port being accessed. I think it feels uncomfortable at first and the needle scares him. Nick is adjusting/accepting the fact he will always have his port accessed. We are now 2 days away from Christmas and feel confident that Nick will be home with us. He has a week free of pills and treatments, so his counts should go back up. We hope everyone enjoys Christmas and time with the family...... I am signing off for now. God Bless!

.....updated by Aunt Amy, unfortunately it is 27 shots to go, but Nick is a trooper and will do great! Every week will become more difficult, as Nick will know what is in store for him at the clinic, but Karen and Greg are doing their best to keep Nick's spirits up and to get him through this phase. We are looking forward to the Shannon family visiting for Christmas Eve - Joey, Megan and Kendra are very excited to see everyone. A Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!!!!! May this New Year continue to bring many more prayers and support to all....Love Aunt Amy
