Leave a Smile - A pleasant surprise today!

Uncle Barry here. Just a quick update for now. Brad will update the blog later this evening on Ryan's condition.

As they were changing Ryan's port he was allowed to go outside for 30 minutes without being connected to anything. During this time, Brad was able to arrange a quick surprise for Ryan. Over the weekend Ryan has asked several times about being able to go outside and look at all of the bikes. I think we all expected 4 or 5 Harleys to show up but there were many, many more. Thank you to all the great folks at Leave A Mark Church. Today they left a great smile on Ryan's face and a bunch of teary eyes to all of Ryan's supporters. Here are a couple shots.

I am so happy that I was able to be up there and see the smile on Ryan's face when all the bikes were there. It is great that God is making some things happen to keep a smile on Ryan's face even though times are hard. I have been praying for Ryan everyday and will continue to pray for him. Ryan is great and deserves something great to happen for him.

I listen to Dennis and Michell on the Radio and your name was mentioned. Your mom called in and talked about you and your need for a heart. Well, I hope you get your wish. I wish you all the luck in the world, Ryan.
