Park City, Clinic today

So we went to Park City this weekend for a military reintengration into the family thing that the soldiers are required to do after they get home from a deployment.  It was super fun that we had to do it in Park City!  We went to a very nice resort and even though we sat in meetings all day it was a great weekend!  We brought Tyson with us, and when I saw how nice our 2 room suite was, I decided to go get the rest of the kids.  That way they could have some fun with us when we weren't in our meetings, and Tyson could play with them instead of sitting through long meetings.  The hotel we stayed at had top notch service, they were very friendly, and when they noticed Tyson they asked if their mascot could come visit him.

So Murdoch the Moose came to play with us in our room!  It was so much fun! Thank you Canyons Resort!

We stopped at the LDS church museum on the way home

We also went to Olive Garden, the one downtown that paid for the Utah moms of cancer kid's mom's night out. Yep, we think that is awesome.  And Ty loves their noodles with white sauce : )
We went to Temple Square in SLC to see the beautiful lights!

The reason for the Season of course!
Monday night I let the kids open their early Christmas jammies present

And the next morning (this morning) we headed to PCMC for Ty's Clinic appointment, we stopped for treats on the way

They were doing Christmas tree crafts in the waiting room, and Ty picked out a cool hat from the hat tree

I forgot to ask his height, but his weight was 15kg!  Yay! he gained a teeny bit!  WBC 1.8, PLTS 219, HCT 27.7 ANC 700.  With ANC 700 he didn't qualify for a higher dose of MTX.  Yay for same doses as last week! : )  he got vincristine too.

The game tvs were all being used, in fact all of the chairs in infusion were being used too so we sat at the little play table.  Ty played with some Star Wars toys, which was fitting since he kept his new Star Wars jammies on.  With no back poke it was a quick visit, (2 hours) and the chemo hasn't affected Ty much yet.  He even ate on the way home which is quite unusual after a dose of chemo.  We got home just in time for some great neighbors to bring over some yummy dinner, thank you!  And as always thank you for the babysitting, love, prayers, and concern for Tyson.  We are so blessed and doing great!! 
We went to festival of trees to see Brenna's choir sing.  They had a 'hope tree' that represented all of the different cancers.  Gold is for Childhood cancer, and Orange is for Leukemia.
