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.

Good news, bad news

The CT scan shows the likely culprit of the fever and the stabbing pain, so we are checking out shortly. No real treatment or reason to hang out here. They trust us even though his counts and ANC are in the dumps. Not to sure the path we will be following now. We are emailing the report to Vermont this afternoon. Dr's George and Sholler will discuss next week and let us know any option. So the treatment for now is antibiotics and Morphine.
Missy has since checked into Athens Regional. Blood extremely low and likely platelets also. 3 units ordered. She is still very nauseous and in pain. She is in good hands though with her mom.
Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan
