Home again, home again, lickety split!

Nick's fever broke by Friday night, antibiotics worked pretty fast and his counts are on the rise, in a good way. He was released this morning at 11:30 a.m. and now taking a much needed nap in his own bed. He had lots of company, lots of phone calls and lots of college basketball. It wasn't too bad of a stay this time, especially as he handed out more of his WACKY pins to the nurses.

Meanwhile, I spent the day with Kelsey on Saturday at her volleyball tournament (they took 3rd) while Carly went to the BYU basketball game, row 3, center court, participating in a flash mob dance during a time out in the student section (visit her Facebook for the YouTube video). Nick's uncle Stan is here and the kids will all go hang at their dad's house later, enjoying the company and having dinner (when Nick wakes up from his nap).

Next weekend is a trip to St. George with Kelsey, having just made the high school softball team as a 9th grader in junior high. It will be her first tournament as a freshman playing varsity catcher. Lee & Nick will linger at home, catching the various basketball tournaments across the country and maybe, just maybe zip on down to Las Vegas for Saturday's Mountain West Conference Championship.

We are in the midst of planning our big fundraising/awareness activity, a 5k, and will be posting details soon (save the date - July 9th - in Salt Lake City hosted by CureSearch - one of the charities Nick's WACKY Warriors support). We lost two sweet little ones this past week to rhabdo - Mackenzie, and Maya - reminding us of why we continue to support childhood cancer research. Please say a prayer for their families.

As always, we are all so thankful for the powerful support we continue to get from those walking beside us in Nick's journey. Your prayers for Nick have been heard as he continues to conquer battle after battle. He remains strong in spirit and faith, as do I.

With blessings,
