MRI scheduled for Wednesday - hoping this snowstorm backs down!

We are anxiously awaiting Ty's next MRI with bated breath.  Clinically, Ty continues to do so incredibly well at home I can't help but imagine that the results will continue to baffle the doctors, but I am also a nervous wreck.  I have been living day-by-day, trying not to even think about the terminal status of Ty's prognosis because I believe in the power of prayer and positive thinking and I see it working.  Even if we do receive news that the disease is progressing (please, God, no!), I am still so grateful for these amazing days... Christmas, New Year's, and simple trips for McDonald's or pizza on a daily basis. 

Ty's doctors can't believe it when I tell them how active he remains, and how well he feels.  Today he played with his brother on the floor building towers of blocks and talked about how he wants to walk more so he will be ready for the playground when the weather improves.  He said he wants me to buy him a ping pong table, too, so I told him he has to keep practicing first - we made a deal.  It makes me cry tears of joy, fear and devastation all at the same time.  I am so mixed up, I don't know how to feel!!  But, I know I am happy that he is happy and feeling good.  So, I'll just keep going with that. 

The MRI is scheduled for 7:30AM on Wednesday.  It is important that we can make it to this appointment because rescheduling can be a nightmare given the fact that he requires anesthesia.  This expected snowstorm I keep hearing about better BACK OFF!

Love you all.  Good night hugs and kisses from Ty and Cindy.  Time to go back to bed :)  In the meantime I am sharing this picture from Christmas eve... Ty was standing up for a very long time with very little support from me so he could play at his new workbench.  I was just SO HAPPY to see him standing like that!  XOXO


  1. Gosh Cindy - you are so pretty!

    Anything can happen in our favor! Or, anything could happen in our "favour."

    Ty's cancer is obviously not doing so hot. And no one can give us a "terminal status" because it is a projection of the future and does not exist in the now. I am positive that Ty's body is not projecting the same thought and neither should the rest of us.

    His NOW status is GOOD.

    Let's look forward to some more good luck. Today is a very lucky day. 1/11/11!

  2. Hola!

    Cindy, it was great visiting you and Ty. The kids enjoyed seeing you all and the cuteness of Ty.

    I want you to know that the time with you and Ty was special and NO snowstorm was going to stop us.

    Ty looks so good, his body IS healing! We are all witness of the miracle of love and health, the Drs just have to testify the miracle we know GOD is doing. If more time is needed to testify this the storm will come to give him more time to heal and reassure his wellness.

    I know this is a rollercoaster of feelings for you, and when we were there I wanted to share more hugs and shoulders for you to lean on; so know that we love you and we keep praying and giving thanks for the miracle He has done for Ty and all of us!

    Hope is rising above the ozone layer.

    Patience is part of being hopeful.

  3. I just love how Ty is looking at the greatest mother in the world! He knows he is in the best hands!

  4. Always praying for you all.. and especially thinking of Ty today since he had that appointment for the MRI.
    Positive thoughts and constant prayers....
