Nikolas is our third child. A joy to our lives. He was born with probable Lenz microphthalmia syndrome. Probable because he tested negative for the gene but his genetic doctor made a clinical diagnosis. This is an extremely complex and rare syndrome, involving extensive medical and physical difficulties. Nikolas is also battling cancer right now. He has Stage 5 Wilms Tumors. God gave us Nikolas for many reasons. And we learn those reasons every day.

Well Nick's oncologist called me right as we were leaving from the CT. His tumors have shrunk 50%! Praise the Lord!
But the surgeon does not feel as if he can resect the left one and leave enough good kidney tissue behind. So the plan right now is to do 6 more weeks of the same chemo medicines then do another CT.
Here's a picture of before and after:
As always, thank you for the continued prayers, they are still very much needed!
