Happy Cancerversary!

Wow!  I am happy to say I went the entire day without even thinking about or remembering that two years ago today Ty was diagnosed!  I was noticing how pale and sickly looking he was at church this morning but that is to be expected cause he almost always looks like that on steroid week so even that didn't remind me that it was his cancerversary.
 I should look back at the two years and do a post about it but I don't even want to go there.  We have gone so long now without any complications that we are thinking and worrying less and less about possible complications and relapse.  Of course we do still think about things like that, and I am always ready for a possible stay at the hospital.  It is such a relief though that I don't want to bring up all of those old emotions by looking back at what he's been through.  Maybe I'll do a post about that soon.
We have also been through so much good, so many blessings, and had so much love and service from all of you that we don't want to focus too much on the bad.  We are so thankful that Ty's treatment has had good results so far and that his treatment has been tolerable and lets him still be a kid most of the time learning and playing and growing up.  We are hoping that we can help the kids with the other kinds of cancers get the research they need so that their treatments can be less tortuous and painful and miserable.  That's why we get involved in awesome organizations like the Tenley Foundation and CureSearch.  We hope to do our teeny tiny part ... we know Ty has such a great treatment plan because of a whole bunch of people from the past who did their teeny tiny part.  We are really really super duper endlessly indebtedly thankful for all of those people!
