The Shannon Family - Home Again

We made it home yesterday. Nick was hoping for Sunday, but the doctors like to be cautious and wait for his counts to be a little higher. Sometimes I just feel like a broken record.... always talking about his counts, the lifeblood of Nicholas. It's scary to know that we are actually in a rountine when we go to the hospital. Nick requests the Wii system for his room, we order the same food on the menu, and he asks everyday if he can go home. We feel like a broken home when Nick is gone, and Colby especially misses him. After he received his blood transfusion he definitely perked up. He has been great today and even told Colby he loved him and to have a great day at school. It's amazing to see the different stages Nick goes through during these 3 week cycles. We take to good times and enjoy the moments and use the tough times to make us stronger. This week we hope to have playdates and send him to school for a Valentines party. It's time to have fun this week and not think about next. Yikes!!!!!!
