May and June 2010

In May Mike got Guitar Hero for his Playstation 3 and Ryleigh got caught red-handed getting into the guitar. We had some of the neighborhood kids come over to play one night. At the end of May we went to a local indoor playground that is filled with inflatable slides, jump houses, etc. Ryleigh really like to go on the BIG slide but I think the adults had the most fun there :)
In June Ryleigh had her first post-chemo scan. There's a picture of her in the hospital waiting room waiting to go to her scan and practicing jumping. (Up until this past weekend (02/26/11) Ryleigh would only use both feet to jump about 1 out of 100 jumps so that is why she was practicing.) I also included a picture of Ryleigh just after the scan when I was still waiting for her to wake up from the anesthesia-they have to sedate her to get a clear MRI.
The last picture is Ryleigh, as she would say, playing "rock on".

Par-ty! Par-ty! Par-ty!

The week after her last chemo, she got to go a Hollywood themed "prom" for the kids and their families thrown by MSTI (the place where Ryleigh received her chemo). Ryleigh loves to music and she loves to dance. She had a lot of fun in the ballroom. (Sorry the videos are so dark)

I just need to sit down and write!

It's been way too long so I will just do a couple of short entries to get caught up and then I will try to stay up-to-date.
Last year on April 15th Ryleigh completed her chemo treatments with flying colors! Since that time she has had 3 MRI scans, her most recent scan was earlier this month, and they have all come back "unchanged". This means that there is no new growth!! Here are a few pictures of Ryleigh killing time during her last treatment and then later on we went out to celebrate her last treatment with some friends.

Join the cool crowd!!!
