Ryan’s a relatively tall guy. He’s just over 6′ 1″ in height. Not towering, but taller than most men. Anyhow, I was looking at him as he was harnessed into the standing frame and thought that many of you probably have never seen him standing (nearly) upright. He’s on a platform that elevates him a good six inches, so he seems taller while using this therapy.
For reference, I am just a tad bit taller than Ryan… at least the last time we stood back-to-back a few years ago. I’m 6’2″ on the dot. So, you can use me as a reference in the picture. Also, how does Duke keep working his way into photos? Oh, wait… he follows Ryan everywhere… that’s how.
This picture gives you a good shot of our (one-time) family room. I’m not sure another piece of therapy equipment could be packed into it. I’m really not. It’s nice to know this will be short lived, as everything should be moved downstairs by this time next week.
So flippin’ exciting!
Duke learned his loyalty from you, I think. 🙂
Careful… Duke does a lot of things I do. Rather not get into that.

Just wanted to let you know i include you guys in my daily prayers (you don’t know me…but i read the article of 12/2010–and have prayed for you since then). From one parent to another, i just wanted to let you know i am rooting for you all, all the way. Duke is your support dog! Annie
This is great to see. Brings tears to my eye’s but a joy to see. I am just an old sentimental guy, lol. My prayers continue for Ryan.
Look at you guys!! Totally handsome, all three of you : )
Ryan looks great, wow, he is tall!! It’s hard to imagine that in just a few short days you guys will be enjoying your new lower level. Duke is going to love that shower, too! Lookin’ good, Dr. D., lookin’ good!! Hoping that you and your family have a good Sunday together!! Love, Paula
