I'm getting a little sick and tired of riding down this terribly long, bumpy, windy and dangerous road, but we aren't even close to our final destination. That destination being Ty's return to his optimal health. This morning, I will be taking him back to the hospital to seek out answers for yet another issue that arose out of the blue yesterday.
Ty and Gavin were on their very first playdate in Pawling yesterday when - out of no where - Ty wet his pants. Ty never has accidents, but I tried to brush it off. This is normal, it happens to all kids once in a while. After we got home, he went on the potty several times, but then he also proceeded to wet his pants twice over the next four hours. I asked him why and he said it was because he couldn't feel it. On top of that, the corners of his eyes were becoming increasingly bloodshot. I was thinking he may have a UTI and imagined his eyes were just red from being tired.
This morning he woke with a wet diaper and his eyes are still red. He doesn't have any pain, thank God. His doctor at Sloan Kettering wants to see him because the symptoms could mean elevated pressure in his Central Nervous System, or something that may be interrupting his nerves in the spinal cord. So much for having the rest of the week off! He has PT this morning and we will be heading into the city afterward. I will be sure to update you when we return home tonight. Love to you all. Thank you for keeping Ty in your thoughts and prayers.
