An update on treatment and a thousand more thanks

For the blankets you knitted, the cards you wrote, the prayers you said, the emails you sent and the gifts you left at the door.  For the birthday wishes, the charitable donations, the toys, the text messages, the phone calls.  For the hot meals, the on call babysitters and the endless supply of lollipops.  For the silent observers who read this blog.  For thinking of us and sending positive thoughts our way, we can't thank you enough.

Although Ty was scheduled to begin treatment today, it has been delayed until Thursday.  No worries, though, it's okay.  He went into the hospital today and he was cleared for treatment, but we were presented with an option to have surgery on Thursday morning that would involve replacing his temporary central IV line with a mediport under the skin.  We were originally scheduled for this procedure later this month, but the oncology team feels it is better to have the mediport in place first, and since there was a scheduling cancellation for Thursday, we agreed to take advantage.  Now Ty will have surgery Thursday morning, and as long as everything goes well (which it will) he begins his chemo immediately afterward.  We will be discharged either Saturday night or Sunday depending on how he's doing. 

In the meantime, Gavin has already set up shop at Aunt Theresa's and he is doing just fine.  What a smartypants.


  1. Cindy, Your posts fill me with hope and love. You are an amazing woman with an amazing family. I send my prayers out to you, Lou, Ty and Gavin. I look forward to the day you are on the other side of hell.


  2. Did Teresa dress Gavin in that picture???? Just curious. Love you Teresa. Love you all. Good luck tomorrow.
