Sheesh. All it feels like is I’m giving you a list of updates lately. What can I say, it’s a busy time around here (and will be for a few more weeks). I hope, before too long, I can get back to my hilarious self. Not today though. Today is for keeping you informed.
Tonight I take Ryan to the Sleep Diagnostic Center. Transport should be here around 7:30 pm for the short ten minute ride to the facility. By nine o’clock Ryan will be all wired up with the EEG and the test will begin shortly afterwards. It will run until five o’clock the following morning. I expect us home before six and resume a normal day of activities and therapies.
Sue and a couple of friends will be at home if we need anything brought out to us (and to watch the woofers). On and off throughout the day today I’ll start pulling together all the supplies that we’ll need take with us. I’m hoping my planning will be good enough that Sue won’t need disturbed.
I wish I could say the same for Ryan. He’s already been disturbed. Plenty. To prepare for tonight, it meant an early start to today. We began getting him up at 4:30 am. By five o’clock he was already in the chamber getting his hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT). An hour-and-a-half later and he was pushing the peddles of the exercise bike!
As for me, my plan for tonight is to spend time working on the website. While in the darkened room with Ryan, I must remain absolutely quiet. In some ways, this will be a nice break for me. It allows time to think without (as many) interruptions; something I get so little of anymore. Who knows, I might even enjoy it?
Until the morning, that is. The lack of sleep will be a bitch tomorrow. Actually, don’t count on me being hilarious tomorrow either…
We ran into a small glitch in our mailing the cards. About fifty were delivered back to our home. Hopefully, that will be all of them. We’re not exactly sure why this happened, but it seems it might have something to do with where we put our return address. The Postal Service looks like they mistook this as the delivery address. We have resent most and will get the rest out today.
There’s still a few days to get one of our holiday cards, but not many! If you helped us along the way we really want to send you one. Our daughter, Kari, designed it and it would mean a lot to us. Just click on the button to get one. [button color=”red” background=”green” size=”small” src=”http://ryansrally.org/mailing-list/”]I want a card![/button]
I added a new feature to Ryan’s Rally that I want to try. You can now send a text message directly to me! The number is 919-702-7296. No need to write it down since you can always get it from the Contact Me page or in the footer of every website page. Just so you know, this number does not accept phone calls, just text messages. If you do send me a text, would you try to remember to tell me your name the first time? After that, I’ll capture your phone number and know who you are.
Remember, your cellular plan’s usage and rates will apply as usual.
There you go. The stuff you should know for today. But, don’t forget, I have some exciting news coming that helps Ryan (and me). The big day is this next Monday, but I will probably announce it before then because I want you to be the first to know and not see it on the evening news or in the newspapers like everyone else. I’ll try to hold off as long as I can in telling you, but it could be anytime. Even today, for that matter. It’s driving me crazy!
