Evaluation week

We were able to spend some time with Ryan last night and he seemed to be in very good spirits. It was so great to see his beautiful smile during the evening. When I walked in the room, Ryan was eating. It was wonderful to see him have his appetite back. Last week was a difficult week for him (which is one of the reasons there were few blog entries) because of the effects of the chemo. He is glad that it is behind him. There will not be any chemo this week. This is the evaluation week. Ryan received a MRI last night and will have various scans all day today. Please pray throughout the day today that these scans will reveal that the tumors have shrunk. We are all very hopeful that, as bad as the chemo has been, these treatments are doing its job and reducing his tumors. We will probably not know the results from these tests for another day or so. Again, thank you for all of your prayers and support for Ryan. Despite the terrible circumstances Ryan has been faced with, it has been comforting see the blessings that God has shown us through the tremendous outpouring of love that is shown to Ryan and everyone...through your visits with Ryan, your phone calls, texts, emails, cards, offers of help...the list goes on and on. I believe that the mental game is half of this battle. And you are all a part of that battle and helping him each and every day.
Thank you,
Amy (Ryan's Aunt)
