On The Move!

Good evening again from Ryan’s hospital room! Today was a good day! The boys and I arrived at the hospital around 10:00am and were very surprised to be met by Ryan at the front door. What a great welcome! The boys gave him hugs and took some pictures and then we took a walk around the hospital. Ryan needed to sign some papers at the Sarcoma Clinic so the boys and I tagged along. While we were there, Dr. Ravi (oncologist) stopped by to say hello! The boys got to see Ryan’s room and stayed for a little while. It is so nice to see him up and moving around!

He is now unhooked from all the machines except his IV. They still use it to push the steroids. It’s so nice for him to be able to walk without pushing around an IV pole! The neurosurgery team came by this morning and changed his bandage and took out the drain.

This morning he received great results from his MRI. The radiologist report stated that the large lesion has been completely resected with no evidence of residual tumor. It couldn’t have went any better! :)

The good news just keeps coming! If everything continues the way it has, Ryan should get released tomorrow! He will also be able to take off the bandage around his head. I’m sure that will be much more comfortable. They wrap it very tightly and he said it’s starting to itch.

Thank you again for all the good thoughts, prayers, and messages! We have such an amazing support system. I’ll update again tomorrow, but I have a feeling my days as a guest blogger are numbered! :)

    Andrea and Ryan, I have never met you but have kept up on you since your benefit here in Westphalia. I have to tell you how impressed I am with how you both seem to handle things. Your dignity and honesty is an awesome thing to see! I myself have dealt with my own cancer and would like to think I handled my situation the same but you two just keep amazing me!! Keep it up and know there are so many people out there like me who have never met you but have only the utmost respect for you and are keeping those prayers going!!! Best of luck!!! Carolyn
