Ty and I traveled down to Manhattan to be with Lou and Debi tonight as they prepare for the Marathon. The midtown hotel is buzzing with anticipation for tomorrow's race. I am so happy to be part of all of this excitement.
Ty had a terrific day today. No vomiting whatsoever and he had a decent appetite so I feel a bit more at ease tonight. I don't know how any of us are going to sleep a wink regardless, but still - at least I can exhale just a bit.
We took Ty to Dylan's candy shop this evening and then to one of my favorite sushi restaurants on the Upper East Side. He was such a good boy the entire time! I think he likes the city very much when he is here for reasons other than going to the hospital. He especially enjoyed hailing the cabs. He was adorable. I'm SO glad that the G-shots kicked in and he is no longer neutropenic. Otherwise none of this would have been possible.
Tomorrow we will be waiting for Lou and Debi in front of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. All of the nurses and doctors come down to the street throughout the day, and they even bring the kids down from inpatient who are able to go outside. It is going to be so emotional for all of us, I am so excited about this and so incredibly proud of Lou and Debi. Then we will walk over to Central Park so Ty can be there for Lou as he crosses the finish line. We have a "Happy Birthday" banner for him that my niece and nephew made. He is going to love it so much.
I only wish Gavin could be here, too! We left him home with my mom and dad because he is just too young. The city is so crowded and he gets out of hand sometimes, but we will be thinking about him all day. I believe watching the marathon and cheering on Fred's Team will become a Campbell family tradition so he will be there next year :)
