Our son Ryan was diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma in 2004. In 2007, my wife Missy was diagnosed with stage 2 triple negative breast cancer. On July 8th, 2009, Missy lost her battle to this horrible disease. 2 days later, on July 10th, Ryan also lost his. Together forever, they both watch over our family now from the heavens above. Below is our families journey through Ryan's treatments, along with the joy and laughter we tried to instill into our daily lives. Those days helped us all cope with the pain and suffering that comes with cancer and it's deadly treatments. Both Missy and Ryan endured high doses of chemo, radiation and surgeries. Over 150 nights spent in the hospital and many, many more days. More transfusions than I could count. Yet both Missy and Ryan took on each day with a positive attitude and warm smile for all their friends. We miss them terribly. They will always be a shining light in our lives.

Fever's down, hopefully for good!

Sorry for the delay in posting. Computer troubles! Ryan's last fever was at 6:30 last night. It hit 101.8 again, but hasn't come back. Hopefully, we have seen the last of it. Cross your fingers. He is still getting antibiotics every 4 hrs. His throat hurts and he has a sore place in his nose. The doc is blaming it on the chemo. I don't want him to have that mucositis again. That was so rough before. He did get blood yesterday, and that has made him feel a good bit better. I brought him a big box of goodies from his class and the teachers at our school. He loved hearing from everyone. Thank ya'll so much!! Kellie came by and played for a bit and that really perked him up. We made some slime and watched a scary movie. Both of which really made him happy. We will be hanging out here today hoping his fever doesn't come back. If it does, it will be another day for us. If not, hopefully the docs will let us go sometime this afternoon. Thanks for all your prayers for Ryan. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
