It has been a busy week. Spending most of my time split between the hospital and spending time with my beautiful daughter. She has been holding up amazingly. She loves having most of the day with her grandpa and playing with the puppies and new toys. She’s also discovered the fun of Nick Jr and Playhouse Disney. WAY too much fun. Grandpa has discovered the fun of these shows too. 😉
Ryan has been doing amazing. He’s made incredible strides every day. He’s gone from not being able to feel anything on his right side to being able to have pain stimuli throughout the whole side and basic feeling through almost every part of his right side. Most of the time, he’s in a great mood, positive and upbeat. Willing to do almost anything to keep going. He’ll work himself until he just can’t anymore. The prognosis is so much better than it was when we first spoke with the doctor last week.
They went in through the arteries yesterday and discovered that both of his corrotted arteries are completely blocked now. Somehow, the blood is still getting up to the brain. Enough to keep him going now. We are going to be using the status before his procedure yesterday to see if he keeps improving or starts declining, to make sure he’s still getting enough blood as he becomes more active.
Everyone’s thoughts and prayers are so welcomed. I can feel everyone’s love and support…it is keeping me going. Every comment. Facebook message. Twitter @reply. It all feels like a hug. A big hug when I read it. Even though I am not able to reply to everything, I am reading it. And loving it all. Thank you.
I know people have asked about how they can help. Thoughts and prayers are always appreciated. If you want to help out in a financial way, we have set up a donation account at Wells Fargo under the name of Katherine and Ryan Campbell. You should be able to go to any Wells Fargo and request the donations to be sent. Please do not think of this as a beg for money. Yes, financials are going to be tight but they are tight for everyone right now. But I know that there have been people asking, which is why we have set this up.
Thank you everyone for your love and support. Our community and friends are the absolute BEST.
We love you all and are so blessed!
