Pray for Dr. Eden!

Hello everyone.

Today has been a pretty calm day.  Ryan hasn't really had any procedures done except for another blood transfusion.  A slight downturn in both hemoglobin (darn) and bilirubin (yay!).  Bili will probably go up again tomorrow as a result of the transfusion but it's trending in the right direction.  It's important for it to go down so that we can do chemo.

Ryan met briefly with Dr. Eden (incredible, Christian radiation oncologist) today to talk about the upcoming IMRT treatments that he will start.  Good news: scans are first thing tomorrow morning and he can probably start radiation Monday, Tuesday or - HOLY COW, that was expedited.  Dr. Eden specifically asked for us to galvanize prayer support on our blog for him and his team.  A LOT hinges on these radiation treatments.  The outcomes that he is hoping for: stop/shrink new tumors and stop the exudative "leaking".  This is an extremely critical piece for Ryan to be able to continue treatment.  Please pray that Dr. Eden's hands will be guided by the Lord - that his team will be able to correctly map the radiation treatments and that the treatments will be effective.

We are praying much, Ryan and Kendra, and will also hold Dr. Eden up in prayer. What a great team of doctors you have, especially when they depend on the Lord for His wisdom, guidance and skill!

After much searching and wondering why we were not hearing anything, I just found this. And judging from the small number of comments, I am wondering if a lot of others are not getting your latest news. Not understanding what is happening???? Did your means of communicating with us change??? Praying all is well....

Our prayers are with you too. I have asked a group of wonderful christian ladies to lift you up in prayer as well. We know that our God is bigger than any circumstance and He will be there in the midst, guiding Dr. Eden's hands and giving him wisdom in how to treat and what to do each step of the way. God bless, and thank you for updating us.

Your are in my prayers Ryan,Kendra and Colton. I'm praying for Dr. Eden that he will have wisdom and a sure hand to zero in on the tumors. I pray that there will be no more leakage, and that the bilirubin will go down. I was happy to hear that your doctor is a christian. God is giving you doctors you can count on. What a blessing!

I'm impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's both equally educative
and interesting, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
The issue is an issue that not enough folks
are speaking intelligently about. I'm very happy that I came across this during my hunt for something concerning this.

Howdy! I realize this is kind of off-topic but I needed to ask.

Does operating a well-established website such as yours take a massive amount work?
I am brand new to operating a blog however I do write in
my journal daily. I'd like to start a blog so I can share my experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

What i do not understood is in fact how you're not actually a lot more well-preferred than you might be right now. You're very intelligent.

You understand therefore significantly in relation to this matter, made
me in my view consider it from a lot of numerous angles.

Its like men and women are not fascinated unless it is something to do with Girl gaga!
Your own stuffs nice. All the time handle it up!

An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I think that you need to write more
about this subject, it might not be a taboo subject but typically people do not discuss such issues.

To the next! Many thanks!!
