Today was a great day. Ty is finally feeling better. For the first time in almost two weeks, we had the curtains open all day and he remained awake and stimulated for hours on end. We read books, we played video games, we watched DVDs, we had conversations and he sat cradled in Mommy's lap for over an hour. It was so nice to get him out of bed. It still hurts him very much to be picked up and moved around, but he is doing it. If this continues, and it will, we will push him to start eating again tomorrow. He hasn't eaten anything so far because it hurts him too much to sit upright, but we think we can get him to start small with some of his favorite yogurts tomorrow.
On top of a terrific day at the hospital with Ty, we have checked back into the Ronald McDonald house and we were able to spend the afternoon with Ty's baby brother today while Nana and Papa entertained Ty. Aunt Theresa and Uncle Harry took Gavin to a birthday party (happy first birthday Nicholas!) and we met him there for a few hours. He is also coming to spend the afternoon with us tomorrow, so we are very excited.
