Remember Eddie Ryan?
Eddie Ryan was shot by friendly fire. He was shot once through the jaw and once in the head. When Eddie’s parents arrived in Germany they were told not to expect Eddie to survive. Well Eddie did survive. Then the doctors told his family he would never remember them, his home, or anything. Eddie now remembers everything. Miraculously he has complete use of one arm and limited use of the other. He can sit up in a wheel chair and he just stood up with help for several 30 minute increments.
Soon Eddie will be ready to leave the Helen Hayes Hospital. However his parents have been judiciously helping Eddie with his many accomplishments. Right now the Ryans need to prepare their home for Eddie’s home coming. They have neither the time nor the finances. If you can help, please go to the link in the left side bar and contribute toward the fund to prepare Eddie’s home so he can go home. His link is one I made with the flag and the USMC eagle, globe, and anchor.
By the way, Eddie can now make some complete sentences. It would be very helpful if people could send him a card ot letter to say hi and keep his spirits up. Let’s all do what we are able to help this determined young soldier be able to go home and continue to recover. Go to the link and read his amazing story. Look at the pictures at the difference in Eddie today and several months ago. If anyone knows of an organization that can help the Ryans with the modifications needed for their home, please send the information to Eddie’s family.
Prayer doesn’t hurt either. As a matter fact, Eddie’s Mom will tell you that everything about Eddie’s recovery shows that prayer does indeed help.
