A long sigh of relief followed today's appointment with University of Maryland's Dr. Ord fifteen months (to the exact day) post Ryan's last tongue surgery. These particular days are not easy, as there is always a "wee bit" of trepidation on everyone's mind heading into the exam room. Thankfully, good news prevailed and everything "looked good." I believe Ryan and I were "jumping for joy" in a cool and smooth way being in a professional environment at the hospital and all. If you have followed along with Ryan's journey, you know we quietly celebrate and cherish these moments fully. Sometimes it's the "small" things that make our lives big! And today is one of those days!
