Why this Blog?

Hey everybody.  Welcome to the “What’s Up with Nick” blog.  This blog has been created by me – Nick’s mom – to help keep everyone updated on how he is doing.  Unfortunately, I don’t have everyone’s email address and I miss letting you guys know what is going on.  This way, everyone will know what is going on by checking the blog.   I hope you will use it, not only to find out what is going on with him, but as a tool to communicate with him as well, especially when he is in the hospital.

Nicholas is 17 years old and he has cystic fibrosis.  He was diagnosed in 1994 when he was 18 months old.  He is also hypoglycemic, which means that he has low blood sugar levels.  Over the years, he has had many surgeries and hospitalizations.  This site is designed to allow our family and friends to keep up to date on how he is doing through out the year, but mostly when he is sick and in the hospital.  Anyone who has cf, or knows someone with the disease, may find it useful as well.  Feel free to post comments at any time.

    Hi, Robin. I work for a company called IZEA, and every month we highlight a blogger who is doing great things to support a cause or charity. I think your blog fits this program perfectly, and am wondering if you might want to be featured for the month of September.

    If so, please e-mail me directly at ashley[at]izea[dot]com. This would be a fantastic opportunity for you to bring some recognition not only to your blog but to your cause as well.
