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, stay down!

We made it through Day 5 after chemo without fever, but we have been watching it closely this morning. It hit 100.8 this morning, but has come down to 99 and is holding there. Hopefully, it will stay down and we will be able to stay home. I am waiting to see if it goes back up, and if it hasn't by lunchtime we will make our way to the lab in Athens for a check of his counts. Getting blood on Tuesday took all day. We didn't get home until 6:30. Some friends came to the house Tuesday night to talk about raising money for the research at Aflac. Thanks to everyone who came and brain-stormed with us. Please keep praying that he won't have any fever and for the chemo to be doing the job we want. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
