It's been a while....

Sorry it's been so long again. There have been a lot of people getting ahold of me on facebbok and through email stressing their concerns over Ryan. Well....she is doing great. Me on the other hand, not so much. I stayed home from work today VERY SICK. Fever of 101 and aching all over. Also, I have a sore throat. UGH!! I really hate feeling this way. I have no energy at all. :(
I thought I would post some pics of Ryan actually having a good time in Cumberland.

We took Ryan on June 8th to see Dr. Myer up at Children's. He is her ear, nose and throat specialist. He thinks that the reason her lymph nodes got so big is due to strep. He thinks the strep attacked her glands and lymph nodes. The only way to know for sure what made all of this happen is to biopsy the lump. NOT HAPPENING. Her lymph nodes are still somewhat enlarged but a lot better. She took a very strong antibiotic for 2 weeks and has been doing well.

This is a picture of Ryan at the hospital last Friday. She had her sleep study done and we should be able to get the results at the end of the week. We were expecting it to go really bad but it went great. We thought she would scream her head off while they hooked everything up to her but she didn't make a sound....except for chattering away of course. She slept through the night with no problems. It was so nice to see her being such a big girl. I will keep everyone posted with the results when we get them. This study will be the deciding factor on rather or not her tonsils and adenoids will be removed. I'm sort of hoping they just do it and get it over with. She snores and stops breathing in her sleep a lot. Hopefully we will get it all figured out. This girl is my hero. She has been through so much and I really do look up to her. She can handle it all. She will grow up to be a stronger person for everything she goes through.
I will post again when we get the results of the sleep study and let everyone know what is going on. Thanks again for all the support and worry for Ryan. It means more than you will ever know. :)
