Nick Counts on ONE hand

Hi All,
Nick received his 6th shot today and now can count on one hand.... 5 to go. It is amazing/hard to count back to 30 and everything he has been through. He still walked through the door excited to be almost done with the shots. I do not think he really knows how far he still has to go, but we keep plugging away day by day. He keeps us happy all the time, with Colby and Tom cheering him on. We are enjoying the warmer weather and Nick is actually getting used to wearing his baseball hats. We had are friends over this weekend and it was really great to see everyone. A last minute plan, but fun we had.
Next week Nick will start clinic two days a week until the shots are done. One of the Chemo's he was receiving is done (Doxurubicin), due to the dosage amount. It is so powerful that you can only receive the max dose and then we move on to another one (Methotraxate). The other one can not be combined with the shot so we go the day after. Greg has been helping a lot with double duty and clinic. Our work has been crazy, but everyone has been very flexible and helping out when they can. We truly appreciate all the support. Love, Karen
