March Update - Flower Power National Campaign - Volunteer Opp - Save-The-Dates
Posted by Laura Gallo-Hadley at 12:13pm on March 17th, 2010
Dear Family & Friends,
Quite a bit has happened since our last update, so please bear with us on this lengthy update.
Peyton is doing well right now, and his seizures have stabilized with the change in medication. We pray his body continues to respond to the new treatment. He enjoys being at school most of the day, and was recently in the school play, The Wizard of Oz. He was one of the Munchkins, sang some songs, and danced a little jig. I think the best part for him was gathering all the autographs from his schoolmates after the play! Kayla completed her last trip to the NIH for the NAC Trial. She takes her last blood draw in the next week, so we are happy that she can begin NAC full time. She is excited about starting spring soccer and continues to take tap and dance, which she loves.
