Short Ty update, St. Baldricks video

Getting ready for Christmas!!  We always LOVE something exciting and fun to look forward to!  Ty is feeling pretty good now, he didn't eat much those first couple days after treatment, but now he is eating good and loves helping me wrap presents while the big kids are at school.  His next appointment is Tuesday the 6th but it is count dependant so we'll see if he 'passes' on Monday.
 My second cousin's wife just emailed me a video of the St. Baldricks event.  It's so great when something cancer related makes us cry in a good way.  I am overwhelmed with gratitude. I can't say enough about this awesome group of people who SHAVED THEIR HEADS to raise money for childhood cancer.  They put together this fundraiser in a few short weeks, and their goal was to raise $10,000!  I am so excited to report they raised over $15,000!!!  That's a record amount for St. Baldricks events held in Utah!!  Way to go Rocky Mountain Dermatology!!  And THANK YOU for your generous donations of time and money and valuables that were raffled and auctioned.  Tyson is alive because of people like you, and your donations will help keep future cancer kids alive who didn't have a chance a few years ago.
