So,we have some exciting news to share with you all about Hayden's treatment and recovery. Hayden's most recent MRI and CT scan showed his tumor had been reduced to nearly nothing but a piece of scar tissue which is remnants of the radiation treatment he received. Life around the house has been as normal as we could keep it. Hayden has been doing great, his attitude has been awesome... no complaints. He did really well in the JAY race this year again. Recently Make-A-Wish made a trip to the house and Hayden wished to go to Costa Rica.. we'll see if his wish is granted, if not we might end up in Hawaii!!!! Where ever it is he wants to be surfing in some warm water and getting some barrels too! Treatment is still scheduled to conclude in August, and none of us can wait for that day to arrive. I remain to live everyday in awe of my son, his accomplishments and desire to push on through his daily life as if it were a breeze, not sure how he does it, but if it has anything to do with our love for him?....then I understand how he's done it. We are just so proud of him for remaining strong there are no words to adequately describe how we feel. And again, thanks to all of you, reading this, right this moment....and know if the circumstance ever arrives where we can show support for you that we're right here for you. You can't do it on your own, and that's what friends are for. God bless you all! Thanks for your support, Nate and Family P.s. Hayden test riding an electric skateboard in above photo
