Nicholas finished treatment on 11/18/2010. He will continue to go for blood work for the next 3 years. He is still in remission.

We are officially done with chemo and steroids. The feeling: Good! Nick has definitely given us a challenge on his last week of treatment. He bargained to sleep in our bed at least 6 nights, which we agreed to. He missed school on Thursday because he was feeling 'rotten', but the funny thing was, he smiled all day while he was home. This was an emotional week for him and he took a lot of frustration out on Colby. Colby even asked us what he was doing wrong and we would remind him: "Nick is on the cranky medicine, you have done nothing wrong." Now the week has ended and treatment is done. Again, I do not believe we feel completely settled, but more relaxed and a little less anxiety. I am sure the anexity will come everytime Nick goes for blood work, but we will deal with that to.
We are going to have a little party in Nick's classroom on Tuesday. I will bring in some cupcakes for the kids. His teacher has been wonderful and she really wanted Nick to know how much she cares.
I could not resist posting the picture of the boys at the water park at Give Kids the World. Take care and I will post soon. Karen
