He was pretty excited to wake up to a giant cinnamon roll this morning and said to dad: 'I even like the parts with no frosting.'
The Infectious Disease doc who is on this week doesn't seem to be as concerned about his lip as the other doc was. I guess it oozed and bled a little in the night, and so his scab looks a little bigger to me in the pictures, but it is hard to say without being there. She said it is probably his way of pushing the junk that was in his lip out but she does want to keep an eye on it for a couple more days. She also would be expecting to see other signs of illness if it were something more sinister and he's doing so well! This is all hearsay of course since I'm not there and I'm hearing all of this second hand, but I think that is the gist of it.
Oh and with the busyness of Saturday I didn't get a chance to post pics of the kids coming to visit which was so much fun! Ty loved having them here and I took them two at a time down for some lunch so we could have some time together and I could find out all of the happenings of the week at home.
They brought a super cool octopus balloon and some foam rockets which are perfect for entertaining in a hospital room. Brenna didn't come cause she had a sore throat, probably from her hayfever but we have to be super cautious
Which reminds me of some other super dumb news. Camping and hiking has always been a big part of our summer and what we look forward to. With summer approaching we keep forgetting to ask our oncologist about which summer activities will be okay for Ty. Dad talked to the infectious disease doc today about our little hike a couple of weeks ago, and about camping in general. She said any time you are dealing with dirt, especially farther away from home you are increasing his risk exponentially, and water adds even more to the risk. So it looks like we are going to be hotel people for a couple of years, we might have to count Cherry Hill as our camping trips since it is grassy and the water is chlorinated.
Thank Goodness for Camp Hobe! At least the older kids will get to camp a little! : )
