Nikolai was born 14 weeks early and, after one month, was diagnosed with necrotizing enterocolitis. This disease resulted in the loss of 2/3 of Nikolai’s small intestine, which lead to short bowel syndrome and severe malnourishment issues. The secondary forms of nutrition that Nikolai needed for supplement, in time, have also caused cirrhosis of the liver. He has since been diagnosed with pervasive developmental disorder. Nikolai was also recently diagnosed with having food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome, which is a rare, severe food allergy that can delay food digestion and cause other serious problems such as vomiting, diarrhea and dehydration. Additionally, Nikolai is prone to illness, suffers with lung issues, has an enlarged spleen, and must eat only formulated meals.
For his wish, Nikolai visited Disney World and Universal Studios with his family. Out of everything he experienced, Nicky enjoyed all the rides the most. Two of his particular favorites were the Cat in the Hat ride in the Islands of Adventure and the train at the Magic Kingdom.
For Nicky and his family, their Florida vacation was definitely a wish-come-true.
