Ty and I decided to take my friend up on her offer and we stayed at her apartment in the city last night - thanks Matt and Juliet!! What a nice, quiet day we had together. We went out to a fancy dinner last night and Ty was a true gentleman (as usual). All of the other women in the restaurant were looking my way with envy and I felt like the luckiest girl in the world ;)
The most exciting part for me was that we stayed just two blocks away from my old apartment on 81st Street, so walking through the familiar streets with Ty was so fun! I was also looking forward to a good night's sleep for a change because we were able to wake up at 6:45AM instead of the usual 4:45AM, but it didn't matter because Ty began sighing and telling me "I can't sweep" starting at 3AM. We've been up watching Nickelodeon since then. Now my eyes are red and countless kiddie songs are running through my head. STEROIDS!!!!
Our appointment with his radiation oncologist yesterday was very promising and we hope to begin tapering Ty off of his steroids early next week. I hope that goes smoothly because I am very eager to get him back to himself as quickly as possible without compromising how far he has come with his eating and speaking over the past few days. As always, I will be sure to keep you posted. So far so good!!
