Segway Jeremy Ryan ill?

Postby swimmingupstream » Sun Sep 02, 2012 11:09 am

I am seeing reports all over Facebook that his lungs are failing and he is on his deathbed.

Incredibly sad. A true Wisconsin hero.

That truly is sad. He isn't very old, is he?

This is Jeremy's last status update on his Facebook page.

"My right lung is out left is at 60% and failing... Doctors said there is nothing they could do... Don't be sad though it was going to come one way or another and fairly soon... I'm going to go out at at home... No more suffering or pain... Hospice or hospital is no way to go... Thank you all for the time we had..."

There are many nice testimonials to Jeremy on his FB page.

I hope a life sized bronze statue is made of Jeremy Ryan on his chariot and is placed on the Capitol concourse. Jeremy who just turned 24 has shown more bravery in the face of evil than any U.S. military soldier in some far off land.

May your final ride into the sunset be a peaceful one Segway Jeremy Ryan!

I wish him well and hope he has a miraculous recovery, finds peace, liberation, and salvation.

Jeremy stopped by to lead the Solidarity Singers at the Capitol today and then stopped by Labor Fest.

He looked weak but his spirit was strong! Fight on Segway Jeremy Ryan!

Thought you reported him on his death bed only 36 hours ago. Must be something about that Solidarity sing-a-long that miraculously gave him new life, huh?

He put his own well being aside and somehow found the strength to attend. While you could see that he was in some pain, for him it did not matter. A real inspiration.

And when you say "well being", I suppose you mean "morbidity". Remarkable! He must have been on some kind of portable iron lung?

Does anyone know what the nature of this illness is? It is sad and troubling to see it happen to someone so young. Is it cancer? Some sort of genetic defect or what?

Fixed for ya.

I am not a physician but my layman's diagnosis: disease of conceit.

Seriously, does anyone know what he has and how he got it? If it is something that can be avoided, we would all be better off knowing that.

I don't know exactly, but I believe it is heart related.

Disease of conceit is heart-related.
