School started at the beginning of August. The picture of Ryan is him before he was heading to St. Catherine's preschool for his first day in the 3's classroom with Ms. Terri & Ms. Lea. He walks into school like an old pro now! The picture of Derek is with his best buddy, Jacob, at the bus stop heading to his 1st day of 1st grade with Ms. Mooney. They are getting bigger by the minute. Derek is playing his first year of player pitch baseball and Ryan tags along and learns all the rules of baseball. Actually Ryan just chases butterflies and throws rocks in the nearby brook. I guess that is what he should be doing at 3!
Troy and I got back from Dr. Goldsweig's today and he has released Troy from his care due to the fact that his scans have come back clean again! Troy will now be seeing Dr. Riley, the ENT doctor, for all of his follow up visits. His next visit with Dr. Riley is on October 5th and we'll see what happens then. Troy has been doing great and is pretty much back to his old self. He's helping coach Derek's baseball team, The Boston Red Sox! He still has some food aversions and it still takes him a while to get his meals down even with lots of liquid to drink, but besides that you would never know anything ever happened to him if it weren't for the permanent scar on his neck. This constant reminder we could live without, but we are grateful for what it stands for... cancer removed and hopefully out of there forever!
We hope all is well with our friends and families!
