Here's the deal

On February 4, 2012 Wesley was in a skiing accident and broke his neck. He is 16 years old and is planning to graduate high school this year. There are not many 16 year old boys as amazing as he is. He is kind, thoughtful, and good date on his progress. I will make sure Wesley gets to read every comment this blog receives. My siblings and I will try to keep this blog current.

Airplanes and Real Food

Well, well, well family and friends of Wesley,

I cannot express how much your prayers, love, support, comments, letters, and notes lift our hearts and spirits. I have begun to read Wesley a lot more notes and comments than I did last week. He has asked me several times if anyone has written on his facebook wall.

Unfortunately, I am having technical difficulties. I can't get my pictures off my camera to a computer. I will fix that soon though. I have many pictures for all to see once and will post them soon.

On Monday, my mom and I flew with Wesley in a small airplane from Bozeman to Phoenix. It was a two and a half hour flight and poor Wes was strapped in the whole time. When we got to the hospital Wesley had a fever. It took some work but his temperature finally returned to normal.

This morning he was cleared to eat real food. The first thing he asked for was water. He looks forward to some Chic-fil-a.

I do have some amazing news and I saved it for last. The night before we were transferred to Arizona, Dallin walked in Wesley's room and his arm was up on his stomach. That's strange. He put it back down at Wesley's side and asked him if he could do it again. Sure enough, he did. It takes a lot of effort but he can move his arm a little bit.

Miracles happen daily. Everyone is stunned at his progress. Wesley is an amazing man and he will accomplish many things. I love him so much.

I hope everyone is doing well. We are grateful for all the blessings that have come to us.


P.S. I have an amazing husband. Just had to add that.

I do promise pictures. As soon as I can figure out how to get them on the computer. 


  1. Wow!!!! That is a miracle. Wes you are amazing!! I am stunned. I cannot believe after less than two weeks he is moving his arm. What a miracle.

    Also, ryanne, I am sure that your husband is amazing. We lived in Los angeles with ben's brother Nathan and his wife Lindsay before they moved to australia and we moved to Japan. Awesome people!!

  2. That's AWESOME! Clearly Wes is a determined guy :) Go Wes Go!
    Sending prayers! Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help! Delivering chik-fil-a or anything else ;)

  10. You don't know me, but I came across this through Sister Benson's blog... Anyway, when you have a minute you might want to read and watch the story of Tyler Wilkinson...
    I know it gave us great hope when my husband survived a spinal cord injury... Life might change, but there is still very much to live for... We do it every day...
    Another neat guy is Gates Hunsaker:
    Above all else, stay positive! Heavenly Father is very much aware of what is happening. There will be low times. I can testify to that. But, there will be so many blessings that will in no other way be manifest. Hard to believe right now, but there will be many many more blessings... You will soon discover what a special world you have just entered...
