I was just looking for a photo and came across these adorable ones from March 1st. This was the day before we ended up in the hospital for mysterious headaches. Looking back on these pictures, I can see that Ty's left side was weak, but who would have ever guessed that just a couple of weeks later he would become paralyzed from the neck down - overnight.

Soon Ty will be sitting up like this again. Soon he will wear those adorable underpants again, too. In fact, just yesterday he tried sitting on the potty again and it went pretty well. He called for me from across the room and said he had to make a pee pee. When I returned to the room with a urinal he said, "I fink I'm weddy." "Okay, you're ready to go pee pee?" I said. "I weddy for the potty!" he answered. It was hard to balance him on the seat since his trunk strength is still so comprimised, but I think he felt good, like a big boy again, to be sitting there like that.
I'll sign off today with another adorable photo from around that same time, although this was taken after the headaches and hospital visits began. Something was wrong, but we couldn't figure out what. I love how he is making the peace sign. He'll do that again some day!
