Uneventful Week

Hi Everyone,
I know I owe everyone a post. Things have been uneventful for us, which is good. Nick and Colby went to clinic on Monday for Nick's IV Methotrexate. His counts were very good, despite this cough he has. The cough seems to come and go, but the doctor said his lungs sound good, so I guess there is no need to worry right now.
Our only big news is that we are going to Camp Sunshine (Maine) in two weeks. A while back I mentioned this camp in a blog and we originally had plans to go in February, but had to cancel because Nick was not feeling well then. Camp Sunshine is a camp for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. The camp is non-profit and run through volunteers and sponsor donations http://www.campsunshine.org/. We will leave on Monday, Aug. 3, after Nick's clinic visit. We are really looking forward to a family getaway and some time to relax and regroup as a family.

On a side note, we ask that you continue to pray for all the kids that are battling cancer. I have met many friends and follow various websites like ours. The journey of these kids can lead to many different paths and some to earning their 'angel wings'. There are two very special boys out there who fouhgt like crazy and both past away this past Saturday..... we pray for Kyle (www.caringbridge.org/co/kylel) and Aidan and their families. Aidan is a 5 yr. old boy who battled T-cell Leukemia for 1 month and passed away (July 17th) due to complications in the treatment. He was a fighter and our hearts go to his family. Take care.
