Ryan had a quiet day today. It’s the first day in a week and a half that he hasn’t had a fever… he was cultured a bazillion times over the last 10 days and nothing ever grew so we aren’t sure what was causing the fevers. He had a regimen of antibiotics and now, wa-la, fever gone.
So adorable! I’m teared up just reading this blog! My heart really goes out for you and your family. Will continue to pray for Ryan and your family. I’m glad Ryan settled down some today. Hang in there,God is truly amazing! 🙂 <3 <3 <3
Wow- thanks for a very cool post. That even got to a big lug like me.
We know all too well the unexplained fevers– gotta love it when they just test like crazy and nothing makes sense. Henry’s comment about the vent was echoed by my aunt earlier this year when she learned that our daughter’s trach didn’t allow her to scream. My aunt has three boys and suggested traching boys as a standard part of the circumcision procedure. 🙂
My daughter Lynnette and I prayed together for Ryan today over the phone. We also prayed for Stellan who is back in the hospital. Our hearts go out to you all. Keep trusting God and leaning on Him.
So sweet that Ryan knows his sissy’s voice, and that he gave you the big smile and the raised eyebrow!
Love and Prayers

leighann…that was PRECIOUS!
this is so comforting to hear:) We’re continuing to pray for Ryan and your family.
OMG, pass the tissue is right! That is BEYOND precious!!! One of my absolute favorite things in the world is when siblings enjoy each other.
Oh my goodness! What a tear jerker post. So very precious! Keeping you all in prayer.
Pass the tissues.
How long until Natalie and Ainsley are allowed to visit him?
All the best to your little hobbit….
I have a teenager I wouldn’t mind traching….but that would be wrong…
Goodness, children are such precious gifts aren’t they? My daughter is the world to my son and him to her as well. They both light up when you mention the other’s name or they walk into the room.
I had tears in my eyes as I read this. I pray that things will move forward and your daughters will be able to visit Ryan soon. I know how much they all need that.
Oh you sweet lady and your sweet family.
Im praying for you.
So cute! I am glad to hear the cath went well and that Ryan is stable.
Keeping all of you in our prayers.
So do you think he’s going to be a ladies man or what? Hopefully you will be able to get those girls in there soon. You were so smart to tape the girls playing for him. Mama knows best!!
Yup, you got me teary! That is soooo sweet!! My 5yo daughter sang a song like that when her baby sister came home from the hospital – I love your eyes, I love your nose, I love your chin…I love every part of you. We have it on video too!
Hope things turn around soon so you can all be a family at home!
I totally teared up. I don’t know how you didn’t lose it.
Now I need a tissue. That is so sweet, thanks for sharing.
The power of sibling bonds are AMAZING! I think you know this, and your daughters do too. They are missing his visits and feel left out. Maybe the girls need to hear and see Ryan to see if he’s okay, just like Ryan got to hear the girls playing and fell asleep to the background noise he is used to. Maybe the girls need to hear the machinary, hear you talking and singing to him and see his little eyebrows raise when he acknowledges their voices!
Oh that’s so sweet it made me cry!
