Struggling

We're either MIA because things are so fantastic that we don't have time to update...OR Ryan is not doing well at all and all our energy is being used to get him better. This time it's the latter. 


He's been running a low grade fever since we brought him home Thursday and is still in tremendous pain.  It's painful to walk, lay, sit, and move in general.  He's having a hard time breathing from both a significant mucus build up in his lungs and pain in his abdomen. We have to really work for him to breathe deeply or he risks contracting pneumonia.  He has a breathing exercise called AirLife that he has to blow into to give his lungs a "workout" since his last surgery was laparoscopic.  We're really, really fighting for him to get better.  Pushing liquids, doing walks even though it is miserable, forcing down food even though he says nothing tastes good, and anything else that encourages him.


Sigh. Ryan Decker, will you ever catch a break?
