Ty and the rest of our family would like to take this opportunity to send a message of love on this Valentine's Day. We are so grateful for the outpouring of love we have received from all of you, and we wish there was a way to reciprocate. I know I've said this many times before, but we look forward to the day that we can put all of this behind us and pay it forward. The biggest lesson we have learned so far is that people are kind and good and full of love. Thank to all of you for your loving words and acts of kindness over the past six months.
Ty is resting. He faces another surgery tomorrow. He will be getting his fourth (and hopefully final) VP shunt placed tomorrow. He still has a ton of pain from his crainiotomy, but I guess it's best that he goes through another procedure now rather than waiting until he feels better only to knock him down again. If all goes well, we should be able to move out of the PICU to a step-down unit later this week, and maybe even home by next Monday. Fingers and toes and eyes and everything else crossed.
LOVE TO YOU ALL. <3 XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO <3
