Wow! Good news!

We got two bits of good news today. First off, Riley got his NG tube removed! See the picture in the previous post!

Good ol' Rye is pretty much back to normal, appearance-wise, at least. His hair is growing back and you can almost not see his scar anymore. It's pretty incredible; I was just realizing that it's only been 3 weeks since his surgery.

Anyway, Marci got to do the honors. She pulled the tube and...... out it came. All 4 feet of it. Or something like that. Kind of gross, if you ask me.

The other bit of news is that Riley got granted a wish from the Make a Wish foundation! What he's going to wish for is unknown at this point, but how cool is that? You can check out their website at I just took a look and got all choked up for some reason. Weird.

Yay Riley!!!
