My Story

Ryton is a very strong willed little boy. He is a twin to Ryker and they currently refer to themselves as Batman and Robin. He is a very intuitive little guy and the doctors have learned quickly that they best REMEMBER what they say around him, because if they say something other than what he heard early he will politely or not so politely remind them of their error LOL. He is has come a long way so far and has gone through quite a battle since diagnosis but we believe he is winning. The nurses arm wrestle over who gets him as their patient when we are on our inpatient stays. He has already witnessed to two other kids that were going through difficult times and has told them not to be scared, this in itself is a bit funny BUT his intentions were readily accepted as gospel by those patients.
