Lil' Ryan Update

Got the results of my tests. Good news/Bad News. I will start with the bad news........... My three other kidneys are still not working. Guess I have to keep lil' Ryan. Lil' Ryan is cancer free. I am pumped. I had an ultrasound before but a CT scan showed no kind of growths. If you don't know before the transplant the scans showed a cyst. This time nothing!!!!!!!! MONEY!!!

Dash For Donation

Denise, Leslie, Mom, Mike and Michele volunteered at a water station on the half marathon path. It was way busier than they anticipated! They had a good time doing it. They wish they could have seen the rest of the group...hopefully next year.

I had several friends run in race. All finished well. Almost everyone beat me except Connor, and dude can't even crawl all that good yet! ha. It was a really hot and very hilly run. I was out there doing it so I am happy with the results.

I had a cat scan done on lil' Ryan. I will know more later but don't expect anything bad. I had to drink that barium drink. BLAAAAAAAAAAA. I chugged 2 jugs like a champ! The worst part was the IV. I don't miss those at all. Though when I usually had them in I would be all morphined up!!!!

Barium update. Last night at tennis my I had "stomach" pains. My stomach hurt to bad I thought it was going to explode. I got home and just made it to the throne. It must have been that barium stuff. God I had to hold on for my life!!!! I know TMI and very gross!! Just a warning to those that don't know. Now ya know!
