Fingers crossed for a good visit to the clinic tomorrow

Ty has an clinic appointment first thing tomorrow, and we are looking forward to receiving positive news from his oncology team.  Of course, they won't know how effective the chemo has been as far as diminishing the tumor is concerned, but we are so happy that he hasn't been running a fever yet and that he hasn't been suffering from any severe head pain since we started the second cycle.  Hopefully, this is a sign of what we can expect moving forward with his treatment plan. 

Ty has been home from the hospital for 11 days and he has been "tubie free" for 5 days (no needles in his mediport).  He took a couple of fully submerged baths for the first time since August because we didn't have to worry about getting all of his "hardware" and bandages wet.  Although he was very apprehensive about getting in the tub, I can only imagine how good it must feel for him to get all nice and clean in a warm tubby.  Snuggling him in his towels and smelling his super clean head is just heavenly :)

We look forward to updating you after our appointment tomorrow.  In the meantime, enjoy this funny little snippet from a couple of months ago.  I just love Ty's face when he realizes he's on video, he slows down and looks over like... "I don't care, I'm not going to smile..."  :)
