All Medication is completed

Nick is completely done with all medication. He finished his Bactrum last week. I think he was happy about it. When I told him last week that he had finished all his 'clinic' meds he said 'great'. I do not think it really phases him, everything he has been through and how proud he should be to finally finish. He has moved on to being a 7yr old. He likes baseball and just picked up the basketball yesterday to try and play. He typically sits out of playing sports with his friends and I believe it is because he feels like he can not play or is not the fastest person. He knows the kids are better than him. We keep encouraging him that he will learn the game and to keep trying. I really believe he does not feel as strong as he looks. I know he tires easily but he will push himself when he wants to. We are fortunate that this is our 'biggest' concern. There are so many kids who are battling cancer and do not have the physical abilities like Nick does. Greg & I undertsand it will take some time for Nick to find his niche and what he really wants to do.
The kids are almost done with school and then will attend daycamp for the summer. Nick will be taking a summer enrichment program to help out with his reading. We have seen improvement with him and continue to try and find the books he likes. That is all news for now. I will have more to post next month with many activities coming up. Take Care, Karen
