Nate's talking

Nate said about 20 different words with the speech therapist today, the names of his family members, animals, objects in the room, etc. This is so awesome, and we praise God for it. He has been very nauseous over the last 18 hours due to the chemo. He is now eating some by mouth and the rest by tube (which is now in his stomach and not the intestines) so he is experiencing more nausea now. It is the trade off of actually eating, but progress and getting back to where he was is important. He will not be getting any more chemo between now and Sunday (his birthday), so he will be fine that day to eat something at his party and be able to hold it down. I look forward to seeing many of you this coming Tuesday at Joe Willy’s…many have asked if one of us will be there and the answer is “yes” one of us will be there with the other two boys to see all of the wonderful people who have been so supportive of Nate and the rest of our family. Thanks again.
