New Update on Ryan

Ryan has bacterial meningitis and is currently still in the hospital on strong antibiotics. This can be very serious and he has to do nothing but rest and take the medicine. I think they will be letting him go home today(after an EKG) and my mom will be going over tonight.

Update on Ryan

As of last night the doctors were still running more tests and not quite sure. The MRI came back fine and so they think it is possilby viral meningitis (treating him as such now) or Rocky Mountain Tick Disease. I guess that test is very expensive (Ryan doesn't have insurance) so they are holding out but may do that if necessary. If he is released today then my mom will be going to Fayetteville to stay with him for a couple of days. Hope to have some answers soon.

Prayers for my brother

Ryan has been having pain, numbness, severe migranes and vomiting. He had a cat scan last week and on the way to the doctor yesterday he had another episode and was sent directly to the hospital. He spent the night last night and hopefully will be released today with some answers. The cat scan apparently looked fine so last night they did a spinal tap and MRI. I will find out more from my mom today.

"Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road
Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go
So make the best of this test, and don't ask why
It's not a question, but a lesson learned in time
It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.
So take the photographs, and still frames in your mind
Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time
Tattoos of memories and dead skin on trial
For what it's worth it was worth all the while
It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life. "

Mt. Rainier

When you fly out of Seattle (depending on where you are going) the pilot will ask you to look out the window to see Mt. Rainier. It is lovely to look at from the ground but I swear it looks as if you are going to crash right into it from the air.

Update on Uncle Ryan and Grandma Kathy

Well my brother is turning Chinese. HA HA He has been studying Chinese, eating Chinese, hanging out with Chinese people and going to Chinese socials. He is leaving next year to student teach in China and is so excited. When he returns to the US he will be looking for a history teaching job. He tells me Chinese words over the phone and has me repeat them...I suck at it. I am so proud of him and can't wait to hear all the stories when he returns. My mom is teaching like a mad woman as she always does and living on the mountiain with Rem. She misses her little grandkids but will be flying out to Seattle on Dec. 27 to spend a week with us. We can't wait!!

Woo Hoo

Six month clean bill of health from the Dermatologist!!!!

Toilet Paper and such

Lame ass thin good for nothing toilet paper annoys me. Work is the worst as you have these giant rolls hidden up in the black hole connected to the wall. You have to stick your hand half way up the thing and the roll is so heavy it just breaks when you pull it anyway.
Also, the toilets and sinks are all automatic so now when I walk up to my sink at home and the water doesn't come in it really ticks me off.

So Gross!

Does anyone else have teenagers that are so lazy they will just wear dirty laundry. I have to hound Lindsey to wash her clothes and I've noticed she has been wearing the same pair of jeans to school everyday for three weeks and hasn't done laundry until tonight. She refuses to wear the other pairs we bought during school shopping because she says they are too big. They are fine but they just don't suck her legs and butt like she wants them to. Friday she told us she has a new boyfriend...I hope he smells her jeans.
