It's day twelve of induction therapy and we have already been admitted to the hospital once, been in Triage twice and Ryan is having difficulty walking from all the steroids, but he is still in good spirits.  We were just at TCH to see if Ryan needs a platelet transfusion and thankfully he did not.

On January 16, 2012 we had our first bone marrow registry drive at Frontier Collision in Pearland, Texas.  Thank you Mike and Amanda Rackliff for hosting the event and everyone who came out to supporting the bone marrow donor drive for Ryan.  We had 48 on-site donors with an additional 28 packets given to those who had family / friend that could not attend, but willing to mail in their swabs.
