Sleeping it off

Ty is experiencing terrible head pain.  His doctor said that this type of cranial bleeding results in the worst type of headache imaginable; worse than migraines, worse than what he experienced with his meningitis.  It probably won't dissipate until later this week, hopefully by this weekend.  We also expect to be in the hospital for another week (at least).  So, we have him on a lot of pain medication and he is spending most of his time sleeping it off - which is fine with me.  I wish he could sleep through this entire ordeal and wake up cured.  I find peace knowing that at 3 years old, this experience will help to mold the man he becomes, but he won't remember it in detail.  All good things. 

Additional imaging is scheduled for Friday and Tuesday.  Hopefully the team will be able to determine from the new scans whether or not his tumor is growing or shrinking, whether or not chemo will continue or if we need to consider another surgical resection.  We hope and pray we do not have to rush into another surgery, but we will cross that bridge when we come to it.  In the meantime please keep praying for Ty, and pray that the chemo is working.

Up in the country, baby Gavin is learning to fend for himself.  He gets around town on his own now, check out his new wheels.  He is just too cute - and he's getting so big!
