Ryan is home

After 319 days in hospitals, Ryan Anthony Sorensen, grandson of Dick and Mary Klancher of Tidioute, is home with his parents, Tom and Stacy Sorensen. “Everything went smoothly,” according to Klancher, and Ryan is comfortable at home. His mother says he is a little light-sensitive, but that will correct itself. “He’s got a bunch of things to get used to,” Klancher explained. His mother “wants to bake cookies and other good smelling stuff to stimulate Ry. That will have to be a welcome change after nearly a year in a sterile environment. Yesterday, there were approximately 25-30 people from our church (Trinity Episcopal, Warren) praying that all went well. As in the past, prayers really helped. Looking back, it’s amazing to consider the number of times Ryan wasn’t supposed to ‘make it,’ but he fooled them all. There is still a steep uphill climb for Ryan, but with his strong parents, major support network and God’s grace we’re confident that happy days are ahead.”
