Another milestone for Nick!

Nick is doing well. He handled his steroids last week real well. How well you ask? He handled it so well that he climbed a 40 foot rock wall and did a 900 foot zip line... twice!!! It is amazing to see how strong he is. I climbed the rock wall after he did and when I got to the top he was there to help me up. This all occcured at Hole in the Wall. Yet another amazing weekend with the most amazing of people. I actually did not want to go but felt that I should go for Karen and the kids. I am so glad I did. It is the type of place that rights you. It makes you realize how special life is, how you can not take a momet for granted and the people at hole in the wall don't take it for granted. They help the kids to learn how to enjoy the moment no matter how bad they feel. The kids all just enjoy the place and it goes by so fast. The other real interesting thing that happened at hole in the wall is that we stayed in a cabin for the first time which was awesome. The kids loved it and that is good since that is where they will stay when they go to camp there by themselves.

Nick's counts for the week
WBC 6.6
HGB 11.7
PLTS 407 (H)
APC 4000

Karen is traveling the next few days so it is all boys all the time at our house. I know that I already miss her and I am pretty sure the boys miss her too. Nick was feeling it last night before she left and demanded to sleep in our bed. It is funny how they show their worries in different ways.
Back to work now. Have a great week.
