I'm sure most everyone knows this by now, but I wanted to make sure. For the last month and a half or so Ty has been doing this weird flutter thing with his eyes (the official diagnosis is "downbeat nystagmus") where his eyeballs flutter up and down sometimes. We had to take him to an eye specialist who told us that it is related to the brain stem. That sometimes the brain stem isn't growing properly. He has ordered an MRI to be done on his brain tomorrow to figure out if it is a problem or not. Ty can't eat for 6 hours prior (eating is the one thing this boy will get mad about so this is going to be a problem!) because he will be getting an IV and have to be sedated for the procedure. We have had great support from all of our family and friends (even Elder Williams), and we are praying that everything goes well tomorrow, and that we can find out what is going on for little Ty. I will keep everyone posted as soon as I know anything. We are so grateful to everyone for all the prayers and love we have recieved.
