Good Week for Nick

Nick completed his round of steroids for this cycle. He was pretty good this week, only a few meltdowns and lots of french fries to curve his appetite. One morning he cried for an hour b/c he wanted ice cream for breakfast and I told him to eat something healthy first and then he can have ice cream. It is amazing to see him turn into a different child when the meltdowns occur. You know he will snap out of it and forget all about it but watching him can be sad. He ended up having a sleepover at Papa's (Boston) house with his cousin Megan. They both had a great time and I believe getting him away from our house is good for him.
I received a call yesterday from the Make A Wish Foundation and they were given 4 tickets to the Red Sox on Sunday and the Picnic in the Park charity event after the game and she offered it all to us. We are very excited and the weather should good. We have never been on the field before and we are even thinking of bringing Tom. You might be wondering why they called us and I have not actually blogged about Nick's Make A Wish Trip. For us, it is to far out to think about. We are making plans, have our plane flight and know were we are going but I try not to get to excited until the date gets closer. Of course it is Disney World and we are staying at Give Kids the World. Check it out. I have heard some many wonderful stories about this place. We are still humbled by the generosity people give to help kids. There are our family, friends and the many foundations that have given so much to our family. We thank all of you who continue to support us through our journey.
