Thank You Make A Wish and Give Kids the World

We are back from vacation and already missing the warm weather. We had an awesome, fun, and smiling time. The weather stayed aroud 85-90 everyday and no rain. We went to 6 parks in 5 days and all the boys kept up with us. Grammy was great and really helped out with Tom. I am writing my journal about it all and will post the details soon. You might fall asleep reading it, but I am trying to capture every moment during our week.
I took Nick to clinic today and his counts are great:
WBC: 5.3
RBC: 11.7
PLTS: 351 - finally a normal reading
APC: 3,400
He starts a new cycle today, which means steroids, Vincristine, Methotrexate and 6MP. This is his 2nd to last scheduled cycle. I spoke with Nurse Pat today and we are figuring out dates for the spinal, bone aspiration and port removal. Nick did see all his buddies again today and we are trying to get back onto our 'normal' schedule. More to come......
