Today was totally great. Ty was so happy!! He's feeling great, his infection is under control and they stopped injecting the antibiotic directly into his shunt (at least for now). Now we just need to wait and see to be sure the infection doesn't flare up in the absence of those injections. As long as the infected shunt is in place, he is at risk of the infection returning. But, we need to get through radiation first so we are keeping the shunt in place for now - one step at a time.
Just look at this smile... taken this morning while he was waiting for his super hero treatment.
