Home Sweet Home

Nick was checked out last night and finally back in his own bed. He had a resident doctor try to send him home on Saturday, but fortunately, Nick knows his chemo regimen and debated his treatment. The doctor went to double check and the nurse came back stating, "Ok, the guy is an idiot and you are staying until Sunday, like you said."

One of Nick's fairy godmothers was out of town this round, so one had to carry the load - didn't she do a great job? She came bearing lots of treats and giggles.


His hair looks pretty good - soft, baby hair and he finally shaved his mustache (only grew on one side) and his chinny-chin-chin - BIG DAY! Food is tasting kinda odd to him again but still eating good. He has gained some weight - took his shirt off, flexed, patted his tummy and said, "MOM, aren't I looking GOOD?" Yep!

3 more rounds to go... As always, our hearts are filled with gratitude with the support you all have offered as Nick continues to fight.

Good Morning Nick,
Your Fairy Godmother made my day too! One just can't help but smile when looking at her - them? I decided to read my all time favorite daily devotional - "Grace for the Moment" by Max Lucado and his topic was A Home for Your Heart - Psalm 91:1. May your body be strengthened in your earthly home and your spirit empowered by Our Heavenly Father. You are loved. May God bless you in the weeks ahead. Prayers and hugs, aunt Chris
