Lookin' good

It's hard not to get excited when Ty's hair is growing back like crazy.  Yes... it is most likely because he is prescribed way too many steroids with a ton of side effects... but on the plus side, just look at these eyelashes!!  They are back!!  Of course, I need to remind myself that chemo is probably right around the corner again and this may be short-lived, but I just love it.  It's like I could crawl between those lashes and take a nap between a set of soft, quilted sheets.  Look at them...


He is doing really well.  Oddly enough, steroids also give him some interesting cravings and a ferocious appetite.  Here's a typical meal these days.  Watermelon, cashews, milk, yogurt drink and tomatoes.  This is usually accompanied by a handful of bacon or a slab of steak.


Gavin has become very supportive of Ty, as well.  Here he is getting crazy with his own set of boxing gloves (he was always kinda jealous of Ty's).  Another thing that Gavin is super jealous of???  Ty's belly tube.  Ty is  showing off his super cool belly tube in the other picture below...


Finally, I just have to share the attached video (I hope it works, I'm having trouble getting it to load properly).  This is Ty singing a song that he thinks is absolutely hysterical.  My dad taught him to say "Spiderman... Spiderman... Lives in... a garbage can..." instead of the real theme song for Spiderman.  Don't ask me why, but he thinks it is the funniest song ever created.

Have a great night everyone.  More updates after our next appointment on Tuesday.
