It is hard to believe it has now been 4 years since Nicolas was diagnosed with Ependymoma! He has come a long way in those four years. Nicolas is 5 1/2 years old and is in senior kindergarten, and loving every minute of it. 

Since my last post we have celebrated Christmas and welcomed in 2016! Nicolas was treated to a very special day (along with his sister Sofia), on the “Dreams Take Flight” adventure to fly to the North Pole. It was an amazing and memorable experience for them. 

As far as his progress, Nicolas continues with therapy and is really working hard and progressing with his speech. Nicolas is having a sleep study next week, and is scheduled for his second eye surgery (to correct damage caused by his treatment). We don’t have the MRI date yet, but it will be in March.

Nicolas also qualifies for the “Make a wish” trip so he and his family will be going to Disney World soon. I am so happy they will get this opportunity as they all really deserve it!

Today I choose to celebrate the amazing little miracle we know as Nicolas! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season, and I wish you all great health in 2016.

Here are a few pictures from Christmas.
