On July 7, 2015, Ryan had a brain hemorrhage during a procedure before he was to have brain surgery to remove a very large AVM in his right occipital lobe of his brain. On July 28, 2015, his neurosurgeon removed the AVM. Several days later we found out that they did not get all of the AVM out. The decision was to rehabilitate Ryan and remove at a later date. He was in a medically induced coma for six weeks and was then moved to TIRR Memorial Hermann Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital for two months. For the first year, Ryan had to learn how to walk, talk, eat, and use the restroom. We eventually learned he was having constant subclinical seizure activity, which was inhibiting him from progressing. He had another brain surgery to remove the remaining AVM in July of 2017. Unfortunately, he is still having subclinical seizure activity and we are currently working with his neurologist to find a way to help get rid of them. He continues to have therapy three days per week for three to five hours per day. He goes to school for a half-day on Fridays and has a homebound teacher that helps him with his school work that needs to be done. We have researched so many different therapies and have tried most of them that we have learned about. We have done speech therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, equine therapy, intensive therapy, aquatic therapy, and have used several supplements and homeopathic remedies. He is continually improving, slowly but surely. We don't know what the future holds for him, but we do know that God is in control and is with him and us every step of the way.
