Back in the Hospital


Ryleigh has been admitted back into BC Children’s Hospital. She will be having surgery we are just not sure when. There are no other options. Tomorrow we meet with the surgeons to talk about the options she will have.
Ryleigh will need to have her entire large intestine removed. Right now, that is all we know. Ryleigh is surprisingly positive and chipper. She is scared about what is going to happen but she is looking forward to the time when she is not in pain. She has been told that medicine, procedures, etc will help her but it has not yet — she wonders if this will really work.
Once we know more — I will share.

  1. Praying for strength and courage for you all as you continue on in this journey. May you be held up with His strength and may He give wisdom to the medical teams. You all have a strong team of supporters here at home. Our hearts, thoughts and hopes for a very positive outcome are with you, moment by moment. HUGS!

  2. Much love to all of you Jo…. I’m sorry she has to have such major surgery but if it means she will be out of pain and distress then I’m sure, with her courage and attitude, she can tackle what lies on the other side of that… she will probably take it all in stride and do very well.

  3. I am new to your blog but I am in awe of your courage. I send prayers and hugs to Ryleigh and her family. She sounds like an awesome lil girl 🙂
