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.

A week without a hospital, not quite...

Missy has had a lot of pain in the left kidney area the last couple days. She called her Dr at Emory and they suggested a quick trip to Emergency, haha.
2 hours in the waiting room, 1 hour in the emergency room, then the Dr finally came in. They shot her down to RT for a CT scan and a couple of x-rays. Her initial blood work came back very low, translation, spend the night. She will be getting 3 units. We are still awaiting the rest of the results. I just made it back to the Hotel. The kids hardly new we were gone. They are so independent. They ordered room service and are watching Idol ! Great kids (most of the time :) I will more as I get it. Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan (who is doing fantastic)
