We had a very tough weekend. Especially yesterday. Ty had a lot of head pain, so much so that he wasn't able to sleep much at all. His breathing is also worse as of last night/this morning. Right now we are waiting to see his team at the hospital and he is sleeping so peacefully that I suspect he might make a liar out of me when I tell his doctor's how terrible he's been doing :) I won't mind one bit as long as he continues to feel better and sleep better.
When he suffers from headaches it is simply unbearable. He tells me, "Mommy I have head pain" over and over and over and over and over again. I give him medicine, I put cool rags on his head, I try changing his position but nothing helps. It's a terrible feeling when your baby cries out to you for help and there's nothing you can do. It makes me want to jump out of my skin.
We are looking forward to starting up another week of radiation so we can get back in the game of beating up the cancer. After week one Ty seemed to bounce back over the weekend break, but this time around the break seemed to do more harm than good, so we want to keep up momentum and I'm sure he will improve over the course of the week.
By the way... why is it so cold again? Here is a photo of Ty last summer. He loves the warm weather and I just can't wait to get him outside more.
