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.

Trying times

Ryan is finally doing a little better this evening. He is back on IV pain, fungal, viral, oesophagio, reflux, seizure, blood and platelets. It looks as though we will continue all of our meds through IV as we will meet with "home health" tomorrow here at Scottish to get it set up. We should be up and running at home no later than Thursday. I have been trying to get Missy on board with the same service for a while. She will discuss it with her Dr. first thing in the morning. This service with allow not only comfort care but treatment care as well! Oral pain medicine quite simply does not work for either of them. The difference between oral and IV is night and day. It is so good to see him feeling better to night, but I know Missy's at home...feeling terrible. We are praying she can get some rest. Les, Missy, Heidi, Will and SuperRyan

PS; Heidi leaves for Ireland, Scotland, Whales, and England tomorrow morning. I hope she has an unforgettable trip.
