Very Sad News About One of Our Members
Fri, 03-26-2010 - 12:52pm

It is with Carly's consent and with great, great, sadness that I'm posting about the passing of one of our member's son. Carly, (member name iam4everlost), gave birth to her beautiful twin boys, Hunter and Ryder, this past January. A few weeks ago, Ryder began suffering from seizures, the cause of which was unknown. At least one of these seizures was quite serious and caused some bleeding on the left side of his brain. He was hospitalized since then as Carly diligently divided her time between Hunter who was at home, and Ryder who was hospitalized. The doctors had hoped they had his condition under well enough under control to continue treating him while they worked on diagnosing the cause of his seizures. They did eventually determine that Ryder had a kidney disorder which was causing the seizures, however, this past Tuesday morning at 10:36 a.m., he suffered a grand mal seizure at which time Ryder passed.

For those of you new to our board, Carly was one of our more active, intelligent, uplifting, humorous, and witty members who kept the board light-hearted and fun. Please keep Carly, precious Ryder, sweet Hunter, and her whole family in your thoughts as they mourn the loss of their baby boy.

I am heartbroken by this devestating news. I was wondering off and on why we had not heard from Carly as I always enjoy her posts so much, and hoped it was just because she was just busy with her new

I am so sorry to hear of this terrible loss. Having been immersed in the world of childhood cancer through my own daughters diagnosis I am painfully aware of the risk to our hearts with each new life we are blessed with. My prayers are that Ryder will give his mom all of the signs and strength that she needs until she sees him again .

What a tragedy. This is terrible news to hear from anyone. For the short time we were here together, I indeed found Carly's words to be helpful and uplifting. Please extend my deepest sympathies to her.

Oh, I am so sorry to learn of Ryder's passing! I will certainly keep Carly, Hunter and the rest of her family in my thoughts and prayers.

I only had 1 or 2 interactions with her as she was just about to deliver when I discovered this board, but your words most definitely do her participation justice. So kindhearted and uplifting.
