Camping Trip!!

 At Tyson't August appointment his oncologist gave us the 'okay' to go camping!  We promptly planned a quick right before school starts trip

 We floated from Mack's Inn to CoffeePot and saw a couple of adult bald eagles and a couple of young bald eagles.  It was awesome!  The young ones let us float right by them.  We watched them fly around and call to each other. 

 We went for a little (2 hour) hike to the rapids.  Ty did pretty good, he had a few shoulder rides on dad and one scraped knees and hands episode, but happily hiked for a good portion of it.
Ty has so much energy!  He is eating better, talking nonstop, and discovering a lot of things about life like any other 4 year old.  He is much more socially inclined now that he feels better, he'll even talk to adults here and there! : )  His cousins came camping with us and it was so fun for him, he always had a buddy.
A few people have commented recently about how good, normal, and healthy he looks.  No more red peeling skin, his lips aren't peely either!  We have also noticed (now that he has a lot of hair) that it came back in a touch lighter than it was before and it has a curl to it now, especially when it is wet.  That is the opposite of his uncle who had blond curly hair, got cancer and after chemo it grew back darker and straight!
  Checking out a spider with his other 4yr old cousin. 
 He has his monthly trip to PCMC on Tuesday right after he goes to his first day of preschool!  He is so excited to start preschool!  He also went to his tumbling class and had a great time.  I didn't even hover over him with hand-sanitizer.  We are love-love-loving maintenance now!  We hope it stays this way!  Thanks for checking in!
