While we are forced to simply wait and see what happens with Ty, I am embracing the uncertainty and maintaining a positive outlook.  And, I'm praying as hard as ever.

In the meantime, we had a great weekend.  Gavin's birthday celebration on Saturday was loads of fun with all of our family and lots of cake... followed by a beautiful Easter Sunday filled with easter egg hunts, overflowing baskets, delicious meals, family and love.  The photos/video below kinda says it all. 






  1. Reposting this here cause of the new post you did. Want you to read this

    Cindy, my father-in-law was diagnosed with stage 4 renal carcinoma in 1999. He has had many 4 or 5 surgeries since then and been on a couple different drugs. While he still has cancer you couldn't tell by looking at him. My point to this is that before one of his surgeries the dr. came to us just before they wheeled him in and said that after reviewing his latest scans he found that the cancer has spread all over his abdominal region. He most likely was just going to open him up and them close it back up.
    After hours of waiting the dr. came to us and brought us into a private room. We immediately thought the worst. But he told us that when he opened up my father-in-law he found nothing. He was amazed. His only answer was that the scans were showing scar tissue that appeared to be cancer.
    I am hoping that this is the case with Ty. Thinking of you guys.

  2. Cindy, I am so glad y'all had a great Easter weekend, everyone looks so happy! I just read your post from the weekend, too and my heart sank. But, in reading Brian's post above, I smile. And, I hope as w/ Brian's FIL, it may be something other than the cancer spreading!

    You are ALWAYS in my thoughts! I know Ty will be fine and continue to improve.

    Ty (and your whole family) is loved by so many all over the world.


  3. oh my goodness, Happy Ty is such a sweet picture! Glad that you and your family were able to spend the weekend celebrating; you all deserve it.

    Still carrying around a package for Ty and Gavin in my car if anyone can provide a shipping address.

    Thanks! and many continued prayers from Memphis!

  4. Cindy - I am sending you hugs. If you need to know how much we out here in cyberspace love you, I want you to stop, cross your arms with the opposite hand on the opposite sholder and then give a big squeeze. That is the best I can do other than I am praying, trusting in our Lord and continuing to send my Guardian Angel to help Ty. Lots of love from Newnan, GA.

  5. Cindy,

    Look at those handsome boys! I am very happy that you were able to enjoy a nice family weekend!

    Praying for Ty and your family as always! Please keep us updated.

  7. So glad you had a good weekend celebrating Gavin's birthday and Easter. The pictures are absolutely heartwarming. Praying for Ty and all of you always.

  8. Cindy, Thank you so much for sharing the photos with us..... The boys are adorable... Stay strong, Love Betta

  9. I am so thankful that the weekend was a great one and everyone was able to celebrate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's great news.

  10. You are such a wonderful Mommy! Praying, praying...

  11. Hi Cindy,
    I know how your world can revolve around those test results. My Mom was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer and she had a Dr tell her to make her final arrangements...well long story short she went with a pretty aggressive treatment plan and lived 27 years cancer free after that. She outlived the Dr who told her to make her final arrangements by 20 years! And medical advancements have come a looong way since then! I hope that once your world calms down and Ty is all better then you will publish this for others. You have an amazing way with words, truely a gift, and others find inspiration and strength in them. It must touch everyone in a different way depending on their life. I am learning to be grateful for the little things. I believe I am becoming a better parent because of you. Things I used to take for granted, I dont anymore. There are so many people praying for Ty and your family because of your words, that is a Powerful thing!! Your doing a great job Momma!

  12. Mari and Brian… happy tears, your stories are truly touching! Thank you for sharing them with Cindy and the Campbell family!

    Ty, Ty, Ty, honey bunny!!! I am so happy to see that you and Gavin had a GREAT weekend!!! What sweet little boys!

    I am anxious about the results Friday and I am ready more than anything for this whole ordeal to be over! I know I am preaching to the choir at this point!!!

    Ty, you are in my prayers all day every day! I can’t wait to read the blog that will inform us that this is over and I know it is on its way very soon!!!

    Love you **sweet*baby*boy**
