Thursday, November 5th

Today is Nicholas’ 17th birthday.  It is amazing how fast the years have flown by.  It seems only yesterday we were pulling him around in a wagon for entertianment…now he’s driving us around.  When I really sit down and think about it, I feel like I have missed his growing up.  We have all been so busy with school, work, and trying to get through day by day with his illness, that the years are gone and we can’t get them back.

This realization just makes me want to cherish each moment even more.  He is growing up, he needs us less, and that will not change.  It will only get worse for John and I as parents.  While we realize he is growing up and he is becoming more independent, we still know that he is our son and we want to do everything we can for him.  I guess that is the case with all parents.  I don’t even want to think about the fact that my baby girl is 14 and a freshman in high school.  Then that makes me realize that OMG Nicholas is going to be graduating from high school next year!!!  Wow…

So the word from the Hill is that everything is progressing along.  Nicholas is going to be doing a lung function test today so we are praying that his numbers are WAY up from the 37 % he went in with.  Sorry I haven’t posted in a couple of days.  It is hard to post sometimes when I’m not there and I have limited conversations…  🙂  Anyway, as soon as I hear the results of the lung function test, I will post again.

Happy Birthday Nicholas!!  We love you!
