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.

Could It Please Get Better?

I didn't get to update again yesterday with pics of Ryan's hours and hours of work getting ready for his yard sale. He has bagged up all his old toys he's tired of, priced them, and made a sign with his dad and grand-daddy's help. I guess that will be the plan for this weekend. We're starting chemo today a long way from where we should be in the blood count race. We had them checked today and
WBC 1.6
HGB 8.9
PLT(platelets) 11,000
ANC 700
Platelets are below transfusion level at the get go. We've never ever started this low, but we don't really have a choice. I'm hoping to just take him in to the clinic and get blood and platelets. Please pray that he gets through it without any trouble. Nothing else makes sense. Love, Les, Missy, Heidi, Will, and SuperRyan
