I posted this to Ryan’s Facebook Fan Page yesterday. It’s so important to me that I get this message out that I decided to publish it to the website.
>>>Please share — and “like” — this post to help me reach as many as possible with my sincere and unending appreciation. Please! <<<
Thank you to all those who give financially to Ryan in so many ways. These contributions are used exclusively for his care, comfort, recovery & treatment… when insurance doesn’t and only when absolutely necessary.
I’m happy to tell you how much it helped him today! I also want you to see how we use your generous gifts. I promise you — as I have in the past — I am committed to being the best financial stewart for BOTH Ryan and you!
We needed to redeem a significant amount ($889.99, to include taxes & shipping) of Ryan’s Amazon Gift Cards to purchase a replacement for critically necessary equipment.
A Vital Signs Monitor!
Like the one that just died, It will be used continuously each night (and routinely for spot checking during the day). I set audible alarms to alert me — as I try my best to get some sleep — if Ryan’s vitals are concerning. When I suspect something might be affecting him then it is used 24 hours.
Since Ryan isn’t able to communicate, this is the single most important piece of equipment for me to assess his overall health.
Remember, just 2 months, how it confirmed to me that my instincts of Ryan being “a bit off” added reason for me to order blood work? These lab results got us ahead of his multiple kidney stones — before he even began becoming symptomatic (fever, pain, dark urine). It was key to having him in the hospital DAYS before they could even diagnose a problem (and the blocking his urine flow).
I’m so thankful for the pain and certain complications he avoided!
Keeping Ryan in pristine physical condition takes input from every source at my disposal, including my “clinical observations”. I use any way, and every way, to get the total picture of his health and comfort.
This equipment is critical to his ongoing well-being. Thank you so much for providing him such amazing care! Words just can’t describe how grateful we are for you loving my son to this magnitude.
He needs you… We need you… more than I could ever express. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Please don’t ever leave him, be it financially, yes, but also in your thoughts.
We cannot do it without you! Please share this post to help me reach as many as possible with my sincere and unending appreciation. Please!
