Cancer Buddies with Grandpa

 Happy to announce that Grandpa's surgery for prostate cancer went well, they think they got all the cancer and that it didn't spread.  Yay!!  Grandpa sent some pics of him getting his pokie to Ty and Ty said Grandpa needed two pokie prizes because he didn't even cry when he got his pokie.  I took him down the 'guy' aisle at the store that had tools and stuff, Ty took one look around and said, "Grandpa won't like any of this stuff!"  He promptly headed to the toys and picked out what Grandpa would really like.  Merin grabbed him some zip-ties from the 'guy' aisle.
 I had to add this pic cause it is so monumental that he is doing a job...granted it is a fun job, but getting him to do his jobs has been an uphill battle.  He got out of it for so long that it's hard to get out of that mode I guess.
We went up to the hospital for the teddy bear clinic.  See the real casts on the stuffed animals?  They had so many cute things there.  The kids got to get in the life-flight helicopter...We made a deal that that would be the ONLY time they would be in that thing.  It was fun for Ty to be there for his 'sick' tiger instead of cause he had to be there.
Tomorrow is the CureSearch walk!!  We have been looking forward to it ever since we couldn't attend last year cause Ty was inpatient at the time.  We are so excited!!  THANK YOU to those of you who donated and to those of you who are walking with us.  It means SO MUCH to us!!  We'll post pics of that asap.
