Nate's week has been very good at times and at other times a struggle. He has had lots of problems with his stomach...even with meds to help him out he has spent a lot of time in the bathroom this week. He has however had some very happy moments and has gotten more sturdy in some aspects. It has been very up and down...he might be strong in the morning and then weak in the afternoon or the opposite the next day. Today seemed to be his best day in a while...he has stayed awake today for the most part and had been playing quite a bit..in fact, right now he is playing NBA 2K13 and Skylanders against his brother and is talking trash so its going good right now. He also actually ate an eggroll and Chinese potstickers today..he asked for them off my plate...he would have never eaten these before. Hopefully tomorrow will bring more good progress. We are grateful to God for everyday and praise HIM for being with him. The time release chemo should be at full force within the next couple of weeks so we pray that out can wipe out the cancer and open up more options. Next MRI is in January in Los Angeles. Nate is a walking miracle each day he is alive and we thank YOU God for each moment. Thanks to all of you for continuing to pray for Nate...we feel your prayers and know that they are working. Here is a picture of Nate right now smiling after just beating his brother...I love it, nothing like brotherly competition to give you a reason to sit up and get going...Nate has never been one to give in! Praise be to GOD!
