treading softly

So, here we are in October.Never thought that Ryan would make it this far. It seems that he is in a remission for the time being.  It's stressful waiting for the other shoe to drop. Knowing that any day at any time he can simply start failing again. Despite the stress, his father and I take every advantage. On the boat for the weekend. out to visit family. even took him to the mall. we were only there for 20 minutes before he had to be taken back home.Nevertheless, when he has the energy, we go for it.

There have been so many ups and downs so many times were we thought our son wouldn't make it through the week. Then he would rally. He's a fighter all right. He's not leaving until he's good and ready. This weekend is Thanksgiving. We're all going to celebrate with the family. simply amazing!


  1. I've been thinking of you, Linda, and reading your blog. I am glad that you have been able to have a lot of quality time with Ryan. Life brings us many trials, and sometimes heartache, but it also brings us love and joy, and for that I am thankful for us all. Happy Thanksgiving to you, Ryan and Alex!
