One small milestone passed

First with the good news. Nick has no blasts in his spinal fluid!! Karen told me the news earlier today and now I am walking on the clouds. Every day these baby steps are really helping our outlook and hope. We did find out some sad news (for us). Nick's good buddy Sean and family are moving back to San Diego. We were just getting to know them and we will be sad to see them go. We went to their house in Newport on Sunday and it was a beautiful day. The three boys Colby,Nick and Sean all got to play down at the beach for a while and had a blast. Colby really understands the greatness of summer. When it was time to leave he said, "No, I love the way the sand feels on my feet." It really made me think how close it is and how much I love summer. The Love family came over for a while on Monday. It was great because it was Joeys birthday and the our boys were happy to be able to share it with him. We have a large event coming this Sunday as the Tomorrow Fund (Nick's Oncology Support at Hasbro) is holding their annual stroll. We have a large contingent of family and some friends going. Amy had shirts made up for everyone so that we can all support Nick in a united way. The event is held to make money for the Tomorrow Fund and we hope our contributions will help these great people continue their great work. After the stroll all are coming back to our house to wish Colby and Nick a happy Birthday so we are praying for good weather. That is all for now. It is nice to be able to share good news. We thank you all for your prayers. God Bless!
