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.

This morning's visit

Ryan got a bag of fluids and an IV antibiotic. They drew blood cultures, but I don't know with it being Friday, when we'll hear on that. He's still complaining of pain and we've got scripts for Lortab and another pain med similar to Motrin. He's got an MIBG injection on Tuesday and scan on Wednesday. Please start praying now that the scan is dark and nothing shows up. Thanks so much. We love ya'll. Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan

Guest Book:
I am hoping and praying that the pain is related to something other than the cancer. Sometimes accutane can cause bone pain too. Hang in there!

Hoping for clear clear clear on Wednesday. Thinking of you all and hope the pain is accutane related.
