Spinals and getting ready for Kindegarten

Hello Everyone,
Karen tried to Blog yesterday after she got the results of Nick's Spinal, but could not log in for some reason. It is good news as there were no "blasts" in Nick's spinal fluid. You can't imagine the feeling of hearing those words. Karen and I could not sleep before the procedure. It is funny 5 months ago, Nick getting a lumbar puncture was just another in a long line of procedures. Maybe we were numb? Now, you get farther away and it is like the first time, scary and that is not to mention waiting to find out the results. Nick handled the whole procedure like a grown man while mom and I worried, oh and of course we forgot his "Thomas The Train Pillow". No big deal to him. So with that behind us and Nick just accelerating back to being the kid we once knew he has to get ready for another scary change in his life. School! He starts Kindegarten on Monday. That means the bus, new friends and having to listen(yikes), maybe even homework. Luckily for Nick, his big brother will be close. Knowing Colby he will try and check in on him often. We are excited to see him get on the Bus and at the same point we will be nervous of the unkown...just like any Parent.
Thanks for caring,
