Some not entirely too awful news…

Ryan came home from his goodbye party wearing this adorable cape someone made for him <3

We received  call today that the spot on Ryan’s leg is a non-malignant cyst.  Yay!  I am so happy to hear that it’s not osteosarcoma.  However, they still want him out of school and he went at the end of the day today to say goodbye to everyone.  They threw him a little party while I stayed home with Bacon so he could have his time with his teachers and classmates.  Aaron said there were some tears from various staff 🙁

On Friday he goes in for a physical, and then on Tuesday gets his port placed.  He didn’t have a port for chemo when he was a baby, and I guess that’s pretty unusual. So we get to learn how to take care of that.  I hear it’s easier but I’m not sure for who… the doctors, patients or parents.

I’m still not sure why they’re so adamant about him not attending school. Aaron always brings him to the doctor’s appointments and I stay home with the others.  It’s just how we’ve always done it.  I need to send him in with my questions.

So that’s our current update on what’s going on with Ryan.

    Hello, I just came across your fund page and was drawn to your story. I can relate in some ways. I was born with an eye that was not fully developed, so I was blind in one eye and as I got older, received my first glass eye. Or as they call them now a days shells. I just had my eye removed in August and go Monday to get my new shell. 🙂 I can’t wait. I just wanted to let you know that I am now thinking of your son and will keep him in my prayers.
