"I really enjoyed taking home the class pet over the weekend. We had some beautiful weather so Spot joined us on a nature hike. We hunted for bears the entire time and we even came across a huge cave that me and my friends think used to be home to some dragons!
We also took Spot to the playground with us! He was scared to try the slide, so he stayed on the bench like me. After a while, though, we gave it a try and it was really fun! Mommy held our hands so we could climb all the way up to the top, but we slid down all by ourselves! All of that exercise made me really tired, too, so we took a nice nap together during the ride home."
Ty woke up a little bit congested today. I skipped his morning dose of chemo until I got a hold of his doctor. We moved forward with the evening dose at bedtime. He is sleeping right now, so I don't know how this is going to make him feel just yet. Hopefully he will tolerate it well. I am jealous that he is sleeping so soundly and I am going to try to do the same soon. Maybe some tea and a book, my new routine, will help to make that happen :) No more late night cancer research!
Lou reminded Ty that the last time he stood independently on his own two feet was Halloween 2010. He challenged Ty to keep up the good work and to try and do the same this year. I would love more than anything to get a photo of him all dressed up and standing by himself. I know he won't be able to walk without support, but I think we may be able to get him to stand for the camera donning his IronMan costume. He is so excited for Halloween, we are all looking forward to it.
