Sat October 10th

I am so grateful for all of the support that has been shown. As always, Margie my wife has been the driving force behind this whole effort and like the song, she is so amazing. Today, my parents left back for Wyoming. My Mom has been here for over a month now and has been trading off nights at the hospital with other family members. I was so sad to see her and my dad leave this morning. They left around 7 to make the 16 hour drive home, which they have made numerous times ever since my diagnosis. I feel like a part of me is missing and can't wait to see them again in a month or so. Margie's parents are here now, which is great, and hopefully this will mean that I will get to spend more nights and days with Margie at the hospital. She is pulled in two directions knowing that the kids needs her, but that I also need her. What an amazing wife. I can't even begin to describe the love I feel for her. Please all of you that are married hug and kiss you spouse today. Also, let your parents know how much you love them. This life is temporary. Make all you can of it. I love you Margie!!!

You've got to stop making me cry Ryan!

Just kidding, it is good to hear from you. I am hoping that means that today is off to a good start.

Margie is awesome! I agree. So are you! I will hug and kiss Seth today and I will tell him it is from you. Ha,Ha! In all seriousness though, thank you for how you are handling all of this. You have strengthened my faith and my love for my family and friends.
