Hi Everybody,

I wanted to let you all know about what is happening with Tyler Tucker. I talked to Darlene this morning and she is so busy with his many doctor’s appointments that he doesn’t have time to update his CaringBridge site. She has asked me if I could let you all know what is happening. She has had no time to update, make phone calls, etc., because of all of the appointments and having to run back and forth from the hospital to home.

Yesterday, they found out that the reason that Tyler hasn’t been able to hear properly since his surgery is that he has a broken eardrum in one ear. Can you imagine? He has only had this problem since the surgery but they will not admit that the surgery caused the problem. He will now need more surgery so that they can try to correct this, but he may now need to wear a hearing aid for the rest of his life. He has to have another hearing test in 2-4 weeks to determine what his options are. They may have to put tubes in his ears.

He also was fitted for a special leg brace, as he was unable to walk. When they got it yesterday, he still couldn’t walk, and they found that there was a lump on the inside of it and that there were problems with it. They had to hurry and make him an emergency leg brace because they had to immediately return home for more appointments today. The second one seems to be working better and he is able to walk a little bit better.

Tyler also is wearing some type of mouthpiece and they are making him a custom wire brace for his mouth that they will have to permanently attach into his mouth. Tyler is housebound for at least a month for his schooling, as they are worried that someone could hurt him by being rough. You know how kids are!

This poor little guy and his family have gone through more than most adults could bear in a lifetime.

Darlene and Ashlie have asked me to ask everyone to please pray for Tyler and to sign Tyler’s guestbook as often as they can. They count every single guestbook entry as a prayer. Even though they are so involved with appointments and they haven’t had time to update the site, they ask that we please keep checking it and signing. Darlene is hoping to update it as soon as she can.

Please keep Tyler, Darlene and Ashlie in your prayers and sign his guestbook. They want to thank everyone who is praying for Tyler and they appreciate it very much.

God Bless them for their everlasting faith in Him and for all that they have been going through, and God Bless you all for your thoughts and your prayers for this wonderful family. May God wrap his loving arms around them to help them through this.

Have a glorious and Blessed day!

Prayers & Hugs,
