Nick is home from the hospital today. He still has a bit of a temp (99) and the docs would like to see his white cell count (now at 12) to still come down a bit but they sent him home with his super-human antibiotics.

Dr. Mulvihill checked in with Nick this morning and said the tumor board met and the majority of the docs would like Nick to receive radiation. We obviously have major concerns with this:
1. Nick's threshold to receive more radiation
2. There is no tumor to pinpoint treatment
3. Permanent damage to his colon, kidneys, etc.

Instead of meeting personally with Dr. Albritton & Dr. Grier, we will have a conference call instead on Wednesday morning. We will address this concern as well as the pathology results and chemotherapy options.

In the meantime, Nick is home and feeling pretty good. Thanks so much to all for your prayers and warm wishes. Although this battle rages on, so does the support, kindness, blessings and gratitude.

To wrap up, I'd like to share a prayer Fairy Godmother Jennie shared with us:

Prayer of Thy Healing Angels,
That is carried from God by Michael, Thy Archangel.
Pour out, Thy Healing Angels,
Thy Heavenly Host upon me,
And upon those that I love,
Let me feel the beam of Thy
Healing Angels upon me,
The light of Your Healing Hands.
I will let Thy Healing begin,
Whatever way God grants it.

Dear Nick
It is amazing what a difference a day can make. I give God praise that you are home. The spirit thrives where love abides and your homes are filled with love. I too like your Fairy Godmother's prayer. Keep your eyes open for the multitude of angels that God is sending your way. Love, aunt Chris
