Ryleigh is back on 3F at BCCH

Chronic IlnessDisheartened to share this news….Ryleigh’s remission has ended and she is now in a full flare again.  Ryleigh started feeling ill mid October and has been getting worse.  We originally hoped it was a flu or some other bug that would go away but as the weeks passed she suffered more and more.  Ryleigh had to stop going to school – which she really was enjoying.  She has been enduring pain and discomfort, severe fatigue, nausea, joint pain, and unable to focus and concentrate.

Ryleigh has been assessed by her doctor and we wait to hear what the plan may be – a holding pattern as her team is not sure what to do with her.  I am frustrated and sad but continue to be inspired by Ryleigh’s positive attitude and sense of humour. So I have to remain focused and hopeful.

Chloe will stay in Vanderhoof to look after the 3 dogs, Jakob, Remy, and Angel. Thanks to Christy and Al who are looking out for her.

Hopefully, this is a short stay — I am really enjoying my new job at NVSS and would like to get Ryleigh back there too.

Will keep posting as Ryleigh moves through this round of treatment.

  3. This disease needs to be researched and a cure found. I hate what it does to innocent people. I hope it is short also and that you can come be the amazing teacher you are! Ryleigh girl, think happy thoughts and envision wellness and where you want to be. It might just be working for me. Pulling for you all. Big hugs.

    You can! Know I am thinking of you all!
