Ty had his fourth ventricular drain placed in his skull today, and he is doing SO GREAT! Right now, Ty has three huge incisions on his head, one smaller incision and several other open wounds from where sutures held his drain in place. He has another new, 2-inch incision on his stomach from where they snaked the tubing from the the valve in his skull to pour out into his abdomen. He has holes all over his hands, wrists, ankles and feet from the various IVs that were placed (or attempted to be placed) during his past two surgeries, two of which are still in use. He is covered in bandages, bumps, bruises and bacitracin. Know what he did today? He ate pizza, he played "i spy", he watched Bambi and he read books. Know what he didn't do? Complain. Not once.
Ty, you continue to amaze us all. Keep fighting my sweet, special boy. Home on Friday!
