Getting stronger every day

Ty is still very nauseous. He was unable to keep down even his meds today. But in between getting sick, he was happy and playful. What an amazing sport he is. Such a fighting spirit. We played Bingo again tonight, and he was able to spin the cage for the first time in months, which he was very excited about.

I was talking with one of his doctors today about how far he has come despite endless complications and the fact that he has what is known to be the most aggressive types of childhood cancer. We agreed that he is beating the odds and I said that we have him and his other doctors to thank. Ty's doctor corrected me and said that Ty is the one that's doing it all and that he deserves all the credit for his amazing strides. That Ty alone is the one who is beating the odds. I thought that was surprisingly humble and very sweet of him to say about our little fighter. And so true!

  2. Ty is an inspiration to everyone. I believe that he is meant to go on to do something incredible in life, possibly be the one to find a cure for cancer. But not to be forgotten is his amazing support staff of you, Lou and Gavin. Looking forward to better and better news everyday.

  3. Ty is very strong willed little boy and will not give up. First thanks to God for healing him. This is just a process that he is going through and when the Dr.'s give him the all clear, then that's when you will have a testimony to tell everyone about the goodness of God. Ty is a champ. Thank you God for the Doctors and staff that you have brought to Ty. Thank you for healing him, in Jesus Name.

  4. You are one remarkable woman. I admire your ability to be so present ~ that your exhaustion has not overcome your innate ability to take notice of how amazing the doctor's words were, or the power of a rattling bingo cage. G-d bless you, and your entire family. Prayers from the west coast.
