MRI tomorrow - please pray for Ty

Tonight is very stressful and scary.  It always is before a scan.  I actually have difficulty breathing normal just knowing that Ty has an MRI scheduled in the morning. 

The scan is only of Ty's spine, we won't be following up with another brain scan for at least another week or so.  The doctor's ordered the spinal scan simply to prove that they are right, that Ty's cancer is spreading.  Lou and I agreed to the scan only to prove them wrong.  Please God, prove them wrong this time and every time.  Much thanks and love to you all.  I will share updates as soon as I can. 


  1. Praying, praying, praying.... And sending positive energy your way.

  2. Cindy & Lou,

    I am praying for Ty, and will say a very special prayer for him tonight. I cannot imagine what you guys are going through right now. That is your little boy, and as parents, we always try to make sure everything is "bedda" as Ty would say.

    Your story has changed my life, and I love your little boy! I pray for him all the time, and I hope that you are able to prove the doctors wrong.

    I know this is going to be a very long night and long day for you guys, but you have to stay positive. I hope that everything works out well.

    Just know, that you guys are amazing parents, and you have done such a wonderful job with your children. I truly do not know how you do it, I don't.

    Praying for Ty! Such an incredible litte fighter!

    Praying for Ty always. Please update us as soon as you can.

  3. The scans have been our friends in the past. We can pray for the best.

    Also wishing you sleep tonight. Every time I try and go in your shoes, I end up wishing so much that you could just rest and breath and relax, but I know you can't. I'm so sorry for what you have been living through. It's not fair for anyone to live through.

    In the mean time, Ty has been such a survivor and we just gotta keep on following his lead. You have to admit it's easy to be on a winning team!

    Well, you know what I'm praying for tomorrow.

    big hugs,

  15. Putting in God's hands whatever lies ahead of you and trusting that God will provide you with all that you need to get through it. Our daily prayers continue for Ty, his incredible family and supportive friends. May you all continue to live fully the life that is unfolding before you with courage and enthusiasm for the blessings that you have, even those blessings in disguise.

    Hope this excerpt from the lyrics to a Casting Crowns song give you some comfort, as it often does for me when I am in the midst of a storm . . .

    "Praise You In This Storm"

    I was sure by now
    God You would have reached down
    And wiped our tears away
    Stepped in and saved the day
    But once again, I say "Amen", and it's still raining

    As the thunder rolls
    I barely hear Your whisper through the rain
    "I'm with you"
    And as Your mercy falls
    I raise my hands and praise the God who gives
    And takes away

    And I'll praise You in this storm
    And I will lift my hands
    For You are who You are
    No matter where I am
    And every tear I've cried
    You hold in Your hand
    You never left my side
    And though my heart is torn
    I will praise You in this storm

    With continued prayers for Super Ty, the boy with the indomitable spirit!
