Ryan is Back at Children's Hospital

Ryan went in for standard labs on Monday. He had a headache and a low grade fever. Once the results from the labs came back, Ryan was kept because of very very low counts. Ryan has received a couple pints of blood and a bag of platets. This has been very tough on Ryan as he was really looking forward to seeing friends before they head back to college. Please feel free to call Ryan on his cell phone to see if he feels like having visitors as I believe it will do him a world of good.
Please keep Ryan and all the kids on J5 in your prayers at this time. Yesterday the floor was completely full of sick children. This time of year is hard on their systems, but a time they look forward to the most. Please remember Trey also as he is still facing a tough battle at home. Have a safe holiday season with your family and friends.

Brad, thanks for posting to Delaney Goodner's carepage. She was also diagnosed at Stage 4 in June. It looks like Ryan was diagnosed in April and they're on the same 54 week treatment schedule. Delaney has finished radiation. She's had some delays due to low blood counts so I think she's at about week 26 -- almost halfway.

Ryan and all those with cancer are in our prayers.
