Treatment 4: Seeing Good Results

Thursday, May 28, 2009

Today Ryan had his 4th chemo treatment. We met with the doctor (which we will once every month), and went over the results from his heart and lung test from the week before... everything is good and normal. He also checked Ryan where all his lymph nodes are; his neck, chest, underarms, for swelling. Praise God because ALL the swelling that was in all his lymph nodes is gone!!! The doctor couldn't feel any swelling!! We were all happy for that news!The treatment began, and so did the troubles of the day. Ryan was just extremely nauseous all during treatment. There was also some trouble with his port connection. But we made it through the day, met some nice people, and got another treatment done and passed. We are a third of the way finished!!! Cant wait til that day!

Exodus 9:16 "But I have raised you up for this very purpose, that I might show you my power and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth".

Thank you for your continued prayers and support. You have all been wonderful! Treatment 5 will be on June 12th.

Best Blessings, Ryan and Elanea

Ryan had his 3rd treatment this morning. Everything went smooth and fast. Ryan is now resting and looking forward to a great weekend with friends, the youth, and fresh air! Thank you for your continued prayers and support. God is faithful and we have high hopes and excitement for how He is going to use all of this to impact so many we care about.

2nd Time Around

Thursday, April 30, 2009

Today was Ryan's second chemo treatment. It was a long day, but it went smoothly. The nurse got the needle in right away, drew blood and began treatment. We also met with the Dr and everything looks good with his blood, and the bone marrow test came back with NO lymphoma! Praise the Lord!!! He is so faithful to those to trust Him! A bonus- all the nurses are Wonderful!!! Thank you for praying and checking in with us. The next treatment will be May 15th.

Blessings, Ryan and Elanea
