Getting bedda

Ty had a pretty good day today.  Although he is still on a PCA (a machine that delivers IV morphine by allowing the patient to press a button as needed), he only pressed the button half as often as he did yesterday.  That's a great improvement for the little man, and it makes me hopeful that if he continues this trend, a day without headpain is around the corner. 

The most recent culture on his CSF fluid has not grown anything yet, which is a great sign that the infection is under control.  He started this week's radiation without a hitch and he smiled at silly jokes a LOT throughout the day.  It was great. 

All is quiet tonight, Ty is already asleep.  Lou and I skyped with Gavin tonight so we were able to say goodnight.  All is well with the Campbell's.  Thank you all, goodnight and God bless.

XOXO Love, Ty

  9. I am so happy to hear he is having a better day! I just want you to know it is so nice to know how Ty is doing each day! I pray for Ty and his family to continue with the strength you have to fight this battle and to never give up hope. My husband found out he had cancer when he was 17 he is now 36 and cancer free and stronger than ever. Ty is such a strong little boy with so much courage it just amazes me how strong he really is and how lucky you and your husband are to have this beautiful gift from god. I know that he can beat this he has come such a long way and I look forward to the day that I see that posting where he is doing better and is stronger than ever and enjoying the summer that he so very much deserves. Thinking of you all every day
