Phase 3, Doing Awesome!

We are happy to report that there really isn't anything to report! Ty is feeling great and life feels pretty normal right now. As you can see mom even relaxed some rules since I am doing so well. This is me on a playground for the first time since diagnosis!
Mom tried to get the awesome sunset in the background...when she pointed it out to me I looked at it and yelled 'whoa, it's orange! how did they do that?!'
I am feeling great!! I don't eat much for a day or so after my treatment, but after that I eat like a champ and have lots of energy!!
I got to go 'camping' in the camper in Grandma and Grandpa's backyard
We even marched in another parade with the military families for our hometown party today...as you can see I am in a bouncy house...and yes mom made me hand sanitize when I got out. :~)

I opted out of the traditional 'Fireman Rain' at our hometown festival today...but everybody else loved it! if you look close you can see it still spraying in the background.. we got to feel a cool misty breeze blowing our way for a while, it was HOT today!!
I LOVE to drive the lawnmower with Grandpa...don't worry, the blades aren't engaged
I insist on riding my bike to Grandma's house like the big kids do, so mom puts my bike in the car and lets me get out and ride it when we are almost there.
I am having a lot of fun outside (even though I hate sunscreen with a passion)...see my dragonfly?
Day 21 of phase 3 at the clinic at PCMC. You can see my pump with the light sensitive methotrexate covered up.
Hangin out, watchin Clifford, waitin for my chemo. This night was the first time I thought I was going to throw up, my face got red and mom got me a bucket... it was close but I managed to hold it down somehow. I weighed 15.1 kg today, only down from 15.4 at my last appt.
Ready Set Go!!! Piggy Back races with some cousins


  1. Looks like Tyson is living a normal life right now! Whew....you gotta love those times. I know it's been said a million times before, but Amy you have an amazing family. From your kids to you and Brady, to your parents, your siblings, and in-laws you are all a pretty amazing bunch!!

  2. I'm so happy to know that there really isn't much to report. No news is good news I guess, right? Good luck and keep up the posts cuz I love lookin at them and knowing you guys are doing well.(relatively speaking) :)
