Update from Hotel Strong

Good Morning!

Ty is still at Hotel Strong. Removing the medi-port was a fairly simple procedure and he did great. He was pretty cranky afterwards but he has been fine since.

Now they're just trying to come up with a plan. They have tossed around the idea of putting in a PICC line. Honestly, Brent and I just don't see that working well for him. I really don't think he would leave it alone. They just don't know what to do at this point. The team was just here but they are going to consult with Dr. Bruckner since she is his primary oncologist. For now, we'll just have to wait and see. He only has three cycles of chemo left which is good but he also has to do some IV antibiotics.

I'll update again when I know more. Please continue to keep him in your prayers.
Please pray for Brent also. He has several new sores and he is in a great deal of pain. He is trying to work and take care of the other kids while Tyler and I are here. He could sure use the extra prayers.

I hope they figure it out so you and Ty can go home soon! And hope Brent feels better. Doesn't sound like any fun ): I hope spring comes early over there. It feels like life gets a little easier when there's warm sunshine outside.
