Checkmark in the good news column

Postby tytiff » Tue Feb 11, 2014 8:32 am

Just wanted to drop by to say Tyler had a scan yesterday after his last one was 18 mos ago. In the last couple months, he'd had some pain in his right side and this last appt we brought it up. Doc said we could do a scan since it had been so long since the last one. The scan was fine, doc said. Nothing to report. It's crazy sometimes to be where we are. Prayers and positive vibes to everyone!
