Another week down - Ty is still doing well

I haven't posted for a few days because Ty was actually doing so well there was a possibility we were going to be able to go home as early as Friday and I didn't want to jinx it.  It didn't matter, because Ty ended up taking some small setbacks regarding his infection anyway and it was decided that we should stick with the original plan and tough out the rest of radiation therapy inpatient at the hospital.  I had a feeling it was too good to be true :)

No worries, though.  Ty is feeling great.  In fact, his speech has improved so dramatically that he is saying things that I never heard him say before.  It's as if he's been harboring this vocabulary that he just wasn't able to show off yet.  I can't even tell you how good it feels when Ty helps me to read his books aloud and participates in some of the interactive shows like Dora by saying the answers out loud.  The baby that was diagnosed with a brain tumor in August is acting like himself again, only now he is a BIG BOY!

The candy cart came last night and Ty is sporting a new candy watch that he loves.  Hugs and kisses to all from the hospital.  Two weeks down, two more to go!


  1. Keep up the good work! So glad to hear this.

  2. I just love this sweet little boy so much!! Makes me so happy to see pictures of him smiling!! I hope and pray the next two weeks go smoothly and that you all receive good news at the end! Love you all so much!
