Ryan’s room is a combination bedroom and hospital room. We try to make it homey, but there’s just no hiding all the equipment. Not to say we haven’t tried. For the most part, I feel we did a fine job of balancing it. So, I thought people might enjoy seeing how we have Ryan’s room set-up. It also allowed me a legitimate reason to use the panoramic feature on my iPhone. To do this, what I did was stand in the doorway to his room and shot a ninety-degree sweep of his room.
We decorated it in a West Virginia University theme. Starting on the left is a WVU clock and Ryan’s 4.0 GPA President’s List certificate below it. It eventually ends with a quilt given by a Morgantown church that hangs above the bed Sue or I sleep in. In fact, when Sue sleeps there most every other night, I go to the sectional couch outside his room.
Just off Ryan’s room is the therapy area that is done up in Redskins’ colors. Please, I know the team sucks — and has for decades — so just hold you obvious, but valid, insults. The Redskins have been kind to Ryan and that’s all that really matters to me.

You all have done a great job. My thoughts and prayers are with your family daily. I pray one day Ryan will get to walk onto FedEx Field with the team.
Hail to the Redskins!
Stay strong Team Diviney!!

I walk into this room
Oh, all eyes on me now
But I do not know the people inside
They look straight through me, these eyes
Seeking more wisdom than I have to give away
Realize, realize what you are…

I love this posts. As always, it made me very emotional. I love that his room is decorated in the WV theme. Awesome 4.0 accomplishment to be super proud of too. My family has always been Oakland Raider fans. We feel your pain of not always being with the “winning” team, but can relate to your dedication!!! Thanks for sharing another look into Ryan’s life.

Beautiful room. And thank you for the Facebook posting on YGR.
Very nice job with the room. Looks comfortable to be in. Hope Ryan is doing well and getting ready for his next 9 mile ride soon. We look forward to hear his progress after his last awesome achievement.

Lovely ……..you did a nice job on Ryan’s room…..saying prayers.<3
Thanks for the picture, Ken. You and Sue really have done a wonderful job making Ryan’s room cozy. It actually looks like a beautiful room. Is the sectional comfortable to sleep on? I hope it’s not hurting your back. I’m with you on the Skins’– they may be off their game (again), but one thing they consistently do well is stayed connected with people in the community. For that reason, I, too, remain a dedicated fan.
Praying you guys have a good day, and sending you my love as always.
