We had a safe transition to Walter Reed Hospital in Bethesda, MD on Thursday. Leslie and Ryan traveled by medical ICU ambulance and private Lear jet to Andrews Air Force base and then on to Walter Reed. Ed traveled by car and arrived late in the evening.
Ryan continues to make progress: He is alert for longer stretches of time. He is breathing through the trach completely on his own without a machine. He is moving a little more spontaneously and is being evaluated for therapy. Ryan is still having special tests to make sure he does not have any unknown problems to hinder his progress. He is getting more visits from other family members and friends near where he was serving in the Marine Band in Quantico, VA. This is also an important part of his rehabilitation and recovery.
We have been impressed by the quality of care he has received here. Because they treat wounded warriors, the medical personnel here knows how to handle the worst. That having been said, we know that it is God who will heal Ryan.
Thank you for your prayers.
Ed & Leslie Schick
