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.

Our boy turned 6 today. We are so proud of Nicholas! Our family tradition is the birthday person gets 'breakfast in bed'. Nick told me last night he would like to have breakfast at 7am. To our surprise he stayed in his bed all morning until 7am and we brought his tray up.

Above is the picture of Nick patiently waiting for his breakfast. He is so wonderful and I can not say enough about how happy we are today. We are going to enjoy the day at the movies, decorating eggs and finally having cupcakes. I'll post more pictures later.

Exciting week for Nick

Nick had a very routine visit to clinic on Monday besides the fact that he went early due to throwing up when he got to school. After clinic he threw up again but never really felt bad besides those two moments. He probably got sick from the morphine and the chemo but who is to know. Nick had a little pain over the weekend so we did our normal maintenance...start with tylenol w/ codeine follow with morphine if that is not enough, ice packs anything to relieve it. Karen met with Nick's doctor on Monday and she had some concern that he should not be feeling this much pain so we will probably try and wein him off the steroids next time and see how that goes. Nick has a single mindset this week. Friday is his birthday and he turns six years old. Where does the time go. He is having a sleepover with Michael, Joey and of course Colby. They are going to go to the movies and then color easter eggs. It will be a fun evening. I think there might be some tired boys on Saturday.
That is all for now...If you see Nick wish him a happy 6th Birthday!!
